It’s almost the weekend and when things slow down at work, I end up browsing the net. That’s not always necessarily a good thing because I end up spending money on items I haven’t budgeted for. This has happened many a time with Superbalist over the last year. They always have great specials and I get serious FOMO which results in me just splurging. In the last 6 months, I picked up 3 Nike sneakers for myself and 3 Nike sneakers for the husband. It was his birthday so I had to, right? In my bid to go on a makeup spending ban, I ended up spending it on shoes. Seems like a waste but I’m so in love with them I’d rather consider them an investment. My shoe size is not gonna change again you know.
So now with the new year upon us, it’s been hella a tough month. Kids registration and school fees, multiple extra murals and worrying about fixing my car have put a lock on my purse. Luckily though, I bank with FNB and signed up for eBucks so whatever points I earn I usually spend on the Superbalist store. At the rate I earn points, I can buy a new sneaker worth about R900 every two months. Unfortunately for me, the ones I have my eyes on are around the R1200-R1500 mark so I either need to save for longer or fork out some dolla dolla bills y’all.
Today was one of those days where I have no points or money to spend but here I am browsing (and pining) away on the Superbalist site. I thought why not instead compile a list of my favourites and let you guys help me vote so when I do get some moola, I’ll have an easier time choosing.
