It's no secret that we're all finding ways to cut our spending. I never eat at restaurants anymore. I only buy what's on sale at the supermarket and shopping for clothing is as likely as me winning a zillion dollars tomorrow.
I unplug the washer and dryer when they're not in use. If I'm not reading under my reading lamp it's not plugged in. The TV in my bedroom hasn't been plugged in since last summer. My showers are shorter. I don't drive as much and the idea of going to a movie, play or concert is laughable.
Clearly, I have made changes. But there's one thing I can't give up. And that's eyebrow waxing. I may be broke, but I don't need to look like I'm broke. And overgrown facial hair not only looks bad, it makes me feel bad. And I'm trying my best not to feel bad.
It's $10. (God bless those girls at the hole in the wall salon.) $10 I'm willing to spend to maintain my sanity and my sass.
What's one luxury you just won't part with?
