Black Friday

Filed under: Living the good life — Tags: — gijanefinances @ 9:26 pm

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my friends in Japan.  We went to a buffet at a nearby lodge and it was the business.  Everything was seasoned wonderfully.  Great conversation and ambiance.  It could not have gone any better.

I also finished my Xmas shopping. Now, I can relax and not worry about it anymore. I did spend more than planned.
This is what I purchased:
Mom: Marc Jacobs Passport cover for $55 and a Kate Spade makeup case for $45
Dad: Gym clothes $100
Sister: $40 check
Brother: $250 cash (I haven’t mailed it yet)
Friends: $500 (Harajuku perfume, skin care, a tote and soap)
Co-workers: $50
Book club: $50
Me: Juicy couture outfit $160; JC boots $200; Marc Jacobs wallet $90;a Harajuku perfume $45; and a Banana Republic dress $110.

The dress is for our holiday party on the 12th. My birthday is around Xmas (the big 37), so I always manage to find a way to lavish gifts upon myself. Now, with the house out of the way, 2009 is all about knocking off the $11k in debt by the spring. Oh, I paid off my student loans–the last $2500!!! It was a good feeling telling everyone that chapter is closed.
