I needed to do some spring shopping. Ya know how it is. The weather is getting warmer. I might wear capris. Oh. I can’t fit in my capris. I NEED new capris. They’re almost $40. What?! To wear capris I will need to shave my legs. Oh dear Lord this is going to be fun. I know it’s Asheville, but even though I didn’t take part in daily shaving throughout winter doesn’t mean I’m a hippie chick. Razors $10. Refills? OMG! A pack of 8 are like $14. Are they made of gold?
My feet are resembling Fred Flintstone‘s so I might need a pedicure. $30 plus tip! Now I have to show off the now pretty piggies so we need some pretty flip flops (no, I don’t do frou-frou high-heels). Flip flops cost $25? You’re kidding, right?
These are BASIC costs. I’m not including makeup. If I added up the costs of all of my favorite makeups, the total would be around $100 for a full face of makeup. How bout hair? I spend $9 on a box of color every 4-6 weeks or I resemble a skunk. If I have time and remember to get a cut, I can cheap out on that because my cut is pretty hard to screw up. I can get it for like $20.
And how bout bras? Men, do you KNOW how much those things cost? A CHEAP bra that isn’t even that good is like $20. A good bra? That thing can cost over $50. Yeah, aren’t you glad you don’t have to worry about that?!
I haven’t even thrown in any costs for jewelry or accessories. I just don’t even want to think about those at this point. Women have it rough. It’s expensive being female.
