DO YOU HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

 Hey Girls.,

 

So I see a lot of no buy threads and it made me start thinking about do any of you ever hide the receipt or the bag from purchases you've made that you don't want your husband or boyfriend to see? My husband doesn't say anything now but when we were first married your hearing from a the number one receipt and bad hiding champion. LOL!

Re: DO YOU HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

Kudos to you!  I've never been independent (besides personality-wise) in my life and sometimes I wonder what I would've been capable of.

I married my high-school sweetheart 3 months after we graduated and started having babies at 20.  Now in my early thirties I find myself with my youngest entering pre-school and I don't know what to do!  Should I stay at home and learn to knit?  Finally complete my Bachelors? 

I wouldn't give up my family for anything but I certainly don't have my sh!tt together in the same way you do.  Kind of jealous!

@starletta8- I don't think anyone thought you were being negative I look as everyone's comments to be about themselves, heck if you need to toot your own horn for an accomplishment then toot away sista!

Re: DO YOU HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

Normally I have no one to hide purchases from, b/c I've been living on my own these past few years...well, except the random scrutiny from my dad, who has access to my checking account. "There are a LOT of purchases from this Sephora place...." he'd comment from time to time, lol. Whenever I'm back home (like right now) I do have to hide my stuff. My dad doesn't really understand makeup, and my mom just thinks I have too much. (ok, she has a point...) Fortunately, I'm on a no-buy right now, so there really isn't anything to hide!

 

In the future though, if I ever find myself in a relationship where my boyfriend/husband takes issue with my purchases, I shall tell him exactly where he should stick his judgement. Smiley Tongue 

 

...sudden realization about why I'm always single. Haha. 

Re: DO YOU HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

I don't/can't hide anything from my husband.  

 

Okay, I must be a weirdo because when I get something, whether it be clothing or a sephora purchase or whatever the first thing I do IS show my husband.  I usually got a really good deal or it is something I am excited about or something.  I even make him play the "Guess how much it cost." game.  He probably wishes that I never share a thing with him.

Re: DO YOU HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

I do that sometimes too. Even though I try and hide the new makeup I get (or the majority of it at least), soon enough I'm showing him it! But that's only sometimes! Haha, and I'm sure he probably wishes the same thing as your husband. I'm just like '..... Yeah and guess how much this was!?' And he's like 'Okay' or 'Cool' LOL Like hello I asked you a question where you're suppose to answer with numbers!! Hahaha

Re: DO YOU HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

And recently he has been "guessing" extemely, impossibly low prices just to get on my nerves!  Hmph!

Re: DO YOU HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

I do this with my boyfriend! I always want to tell/show him the new things I bought because I'm super excited whenever I get something new. He has accepted that this is just how I am Smiley Tongue

Re: DO YOU HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

I don't hide them.  I tell him how much I plan on spending and how much I actually did spend when I get home.  He gives me the "are you serious" look and sighs.  I'm actually kind of surprised that he didn't freak out about the new swimsuit I bought last weekend...but then again, after two pregnancies and seven years, I figure I need a new swimsuit!  (Tankini top, bikini bottom and shorts to cover came to $181 and change.  Nordstrom, which is why it was pricey.)

Re: DO YOU HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

@waterbaby-  That seems like a pretty good price for all that swimwear to me. I've gotten some athletic swimsuits where top and bottom came to that price and there wasn't that much fabric to it, just that it wouldn't fall off if I hit a wave.
