      I am just getting started so when you need everything the cash register just keeps ringing and Amazon smiles even more.

      Yup, the struggle is real!

      I really do not know.  I try to plan and all, but I also love impulse shopping.  I have tried to keep track several times in the past, but it just fell to side.

      My weakness is seeing some cute item on ultra clearance or the thrift shop sale. Just tjis week, I added 3 pairs of heels, a bra, 2 dresses, and a top, all $1 each. My collection is growing, hoping someday I get to wear it all more often instead of mostly at home.

      Thanks Grace for an outstanding post.

      I spend way too much time browsing the ASOS iPhone app, and… I have overspent quite a bit over the last six months. The ASOS app makes it too easy to spend.

      I spend a conservative amount of money on myself, preferring to save for retirement.
      (I don’t want to have to eat cat food in my old age).
      I did splurge on my wedding dress. I was married last week (10/10/2020).

      Too much! 🤦‍♀️

      Over the years it has  run into thousands!

      I did a count up of all my orders on Amazon going back to 2014.

      My wig span round and lifted off!  I don’t remember the exact amount, it was around £3500.  And that was only on Amazon.  I used to buy stuff from Tesco and New Look too.  And I have been collecting and purging  for decades.

      I have a secret credit card and Amazon account and so far it has all been under the radar.

      If my wife knew all hell would break loose.  Strangely though, she has never asked me how much I have spent. I await that question with trepidation, because I know I will have to lie. And I would be forced to hand my cc over.

      Late in 2019 I stopped spending for a while. I knew it was getting out of hand. Then I had a big “lets make  some space” purge before the roof of the garage collapsed, and after my wife found some of my stuff behind a drawer unit in said garage.  I had gotten lax and not returned it above. “Why have you got so many false lashes?”  She asked.

      But since things have improved – we had a big garage sort out requiring a 6 yard skip. No.. not for my wardrobe!   She now knows where my cherished clothes are stashed and leaves them be. Life sure has improved.

      But I digress.  Lately, through the malign influence of the pink fog I have started spending again. Well I have room for it now!

      Six pairs of ankle boots, one pair of trainers, three dresses(one for the charity bag), one skirt, one wig.

      Bargains! The boots cost about £140.00 (from Dream Pairs on Amazon – I am fortunate I can Squeeeezee into their size 9’s and great quality for the price.)

      And so the cycle begins again. But I will be spending less… promise. 🤞

      Ive only started rebuilding my wardrobe in the last month or two, and this time around it’s with both guns blazing. My Previous CD was only stockings,underwear and a few tops.

      As I’ve embraced Rei and found spousal acceptance my purchases have been a little overboard, like, who needs 6 pairs of ankle boots and 8 pairs of skinny jeans? Bought couple of wigs last night, some stockings this evening. Next will be make up (once I study up on this so I can get an idea what the heck I’m doing)

      Long story short, it’s been a lot right now, and no end in sight yet. And I 💕 LOVE ❤️ it!

      Right.

      What a great post.

      I spend my money on bills & food & car & work first.

      When i buy extra stuff i like to make sure i think about what i need to spend my extra money on.

      If i had it my way i would buy all of my extra money on recreating my crossdressing life once again.

      I had moved & got rid of pretty much all of my crossdressing stuff.

      Then my fiance & i were talking & she said it was ok for me to crossdress if i wanted because she wont stop me.

      First  I thought is this test.

      Lol

      But we talked more & more on it & now im back to getting my crossdressing life back in play.

      So i had to buy all of what i need to make a few outfits & now make up is what im working on. Never got much into make up the first time around.

      So now i like to spend about $20 to $40 a week.

      Little things here & there.

      Not sure what percentage that is.

      I started out kind of fast buying stuff but when i have free time i going to different sites & make my wish lists longer.

      But I have to think about my life & not just recreating my crossdressing life over again & just tale my time & look for all the great deals.

      Thanks

      Love the post.

      Hugs.

      Anna.

      I am pretty careful with my spending. Over the last year I have probably spent an average of $20/month on things that are uniquely Delora.

      I typically shop in charity shops or discount stores.  I mostly want clothes that I can use for everyday stuff. I have no need for fancy evening-wear. Just a simple top and leggings will do me most of the time.

      I am sorry your grace, but on that subject I feel I must plead the fifth!….even to myself.

       

      What, these old things? I’ve had them in the closet forever, I just never found the right occassion to wear them until just now.

      Yes, of course I have a wish list and I’m working on it slowly, but those darn bills just keep showing up and they come first…most of the time.

      I actually keep track of finances to the level that I have a somewhat good idea on how much I spend on Kelly, the answer is of course to much.
      To not overspend that much I have a personal rewards system, do something big and get to buy that skirt/heel. It does also motivate me to do some of the less interesting tasks. Right now I’m working on a basement renovation and once that is finished and approved by her I will have a shopping spree on aliexpress, hopefully that will come around christmas so then my presents to my self is done.

      I’m a compulsive collector, so in the early days it was like I must have a summer dress, court shoes, lippy, etc, and I’d overspend.

      Now the storage is creaking at the seams, and some of the items don’t feel quite right, I’m more careful, and donate to charity, or use the last of a product before buying more.

      I still see gaps – last month I had to get some Jecca Blac concealer and restock my costume jewellery, and this month I need hair shine spray to revitalise my wigs, and a new handbag – I keep the monthly budget to a reasonable £50 max, as I’m running low on the pot I made doing consultancy. But, as I say, I have a great selection to choose from, and choice is really important, right? You never know what you’re going to be in the mood for wearing, so it really pays to have options!

      Every other penny goes on bills and the kids. They come first 😍

      Love Laura

          Hi Grace,

          I think in my case, the word should be “price-more”. LOL.  I’m blessed with not having to worry about a budget – but my wife really doesn’t need to know all the details.

          Hugs,

      Oh my…. trying  not to keep track.  Lol.  I should be a co-owner of the local thrift store by now though.  I can say I’ve spent more on clothing in the past few months for “the girl” then drab old me had in the past few years!  There’s just sooo much out there to choose from.  I do try to control myself buy buying in store with cash only ….  that don’t work out so well with a banking machine next door however. 😅

      But, yes, I spend a sizable  amount of discretionary purchases on Me.  Because I’m worth it.  ( and Damn, I enjoy shopping now! )

      Well, as a boy , I am so low maintenance. T-shirts, jeans and sneakers. My boy closet is so sparse while my girl closet has taken on a life of its own. There is always something that I see while shopping that I just must add to my girl closet. I have so much that now I am trying to contain myself in the stores and not fill the carts. But it’s just so hard, I want to own everything I see. Cis women are so lucky, they have so many styles and colors and shoes and etc,etc,etc ! Boys in the real world, on the other hand, are limited to the status quo ! That sucks. I lived in the Caribbean for many years as a young adult and wore so many flamboyant outfits and no one gave it a second thought. ( A bright flowered blouse and yellow hip hugger bellbottoms was one that I remember well). We weren’t well off so I would share my moms and my sisters  clothes with them and didn’t think twice about it. GIRLS….if it makes you happy and you look killer in it, buy it, with no regrets !

      Hi Grace, I’ve been through my “shopping” phase. I already have way too many clothes and have come to the point where I can only buy something if I get rid of something first.  There are two full closets, two high chests of drawers, two low chests of drawers and there is no way my wife will let me use her closet space (she has the same amount as me). The good thing is that I can be much more picky about what I buy – only good quality things from now on. But I still have a lot of fun looking.  Stay safe, stay healthy, All the Best, Hugs, Krista.

      Well, depending on how I look at it, I spend far too much or far too little!  It all depends on perspective and how ‘sensible’ I’m being at any given time.  If I ever have the ‘Do I need it?’ conversation with myself, I probably won’t be buying, but if that question doesn’t come up, well, that’s a different story…
      Buy or not, it’s fun looking anyway, whether on line or in person.

      I am a budgeter by nature. I am cheap and I am frugal.

      Basically for every 1000 dollars that gets safely stored away in my bank I get to spend 100 of it on Jenny’s stuff, I usually don’t even spend that much. Thrift stores are so nice and a few work arounds exist that can make it so much easier to save money nowadays. That being said some things you cannot cheap out on and I am saving up for those things.
