How much can you spend in a day for shopping?

I've always felt guilty when shopping for too much even if I know I have the budget. The moment I go over Php5000 in a day for my personal shopping only, I stop and feel sooo guilty. I'd like to splurge one day and just go out and shop but I can't seem to bring myself to do so.

If there's no ceiling on money, then I wouldn't be guilty at all. But with many things and needs all around, it also makes me guilty to spend so much for myself. Shopping? I could go as much as 10,000 if I want to but I could not let myself go there as well. I always am afraid if I become a shopaholic and what if money isn't coming anymore, right? It's better to have a budget for now.

Hi Laydee, I work for every penny I get and I feel at times like I deserve to enjoy it but thinking of how hard I've earned it, it makes it harder to spend. Your tip's nice...maybe I'll start my own luxury budget ;)

I think the most I spent in a day was like $150 CDN. I bought a couple of Gundam models (robot models), that were expensive and ended up spending that much. That may not seem like much, but I don't have a job, so to me, it's a lot. I do feel guilty about spending that much, especially because I don't have a job. But splurging would be pretty cool. I often wondered what it would be like to win the lottery and just buy a whole ton of stuff I mostly likely just want and not even need (=p)

It is so tipical for a woman to buy what she want,you know we love beautiful things for example skirts , fabulous clothes and decorations ,perfume cosmetics and so on ,we born on it ,just like the saying everyone have the heart of loving beautiful things ,so you don,t have to feel so guilty. At the same time you have your own budget ,so what you have to do is to control your budget ,not to worry about it . buying things is really a fabulous process,so just enjoy it .
