Financial Priorities

I do fine, financially. Don't need for anything. Definitely want for things, but that's ok. However, like most women I think that the way I prioritize financially is interesting. Case in point: the sports bra.

I need a new one. Badly. Here is the one I wear now:












I have had it since freshman year of college - almost nine years. The elastic is totally shot. It is almost yellow with age. It is so ineffective at performing it's duties that I actually have to wear it over another bra for it to at all work.

But the new one that I want is $30. So I procrastinate buying it.

Yet last week I went out to eat three times, bought new work pants, stocked my home bar a bit, and made hotel reservations in Paris. However, I still couldn't bring myself to shell out $30 for a much needed support garment.

So there you have it folks. To Rees, food, friends, drinking, and travel are important. The well-being of her breasts in spinning class - not so much.

Calm down, people. I was stretching the truth about the yellow-ness. Some people call it "exaggerating for dramatic effect". Some people call it James Frey-ing. I promise I won't do it in my book...
