    I don't like to feel I overspent on something...but if it's quality, I'm willing to shell out for it.

    *Shudders*

    $15 for lipstick.

    Trust me, my husband does NOT know about that.

    Otherwise, I'm the "Damned if I'm gonna pay THAT for THAT!" type.

    My husband would probably argue that everything I buy is over-priced.

    Actually, I'm a recovering shopaholic, I shouldn't even be in this thread.

    Two genuine crocodile belts 1 black, and 1 brown size 30, and a year later my waist went to 32.

    I'm a cheapskate too -- or, as I prefer to think of it, bargain hunter. I do a *lot* of my clothes shopping at TJ Maxx and the like, where you can find things like Nine West shoes for $25.
    I'll splurge on a good suit now and then, or on tall leather boots. If I can't find them on sale. Those are worth it. But last week I spent $17 on a black cotton T-shirt from Express. Nothing on it, just plain, thin cotton that will probably fall apart when I wash it, and was probably manufactured for $1.50 by overworked child workers in Malaysia.
    It was way more than I'd normally pay for a scrap of cotton.
    But it looked so cute on. Cuter than my other dozen black tops. I had to have it.

    Oh yeah, I forgot the sunglasses. I like the Revo the best, but since my face is small (I'm petite everywhere, not just a pea head) - Kenneth Cole work best for me. Uh oh, time to head out shopping....

    No, I'm on cheapie patrol too! I like good stuff, but I'll go with the cheaper stuff and save my spare change to splurge on vacations ( waiting for the best deals of course), camera equipment, stuff like that as opposed to expensive clothes. Of course I absolutely refuse to carry a balance on my charge card! So, maybe I'm not as stylish and cute as some, but I can dream of being a retired-early-with-a nice-nest-egg old bat eventually!

    Oh, to get back on topic; I did actually spend $22 on a bicycle bell that's hand painted, it's a cute little ladybug, imported from France . Probably the only totally frivolous puchase I've made in the past year.
    Obviously, I ain't hard to please.

    I consider myself a cheapskate (and I HATE to shop), but $125 for a skillet - can't skimp on good cookware (ditto knives)

    Uh oh. ADKLove's post reminds me of something else I spend too much on. I realize she's talking carving/steak knives, but it reminded me of one of my downfalls. My husband and I both have pocketknife collections and have spent insane amounts of money on them before.
