I just took DD to get her something nice because she had a gift card to the store from her BAs mitzvah. I took her once before pesach and now again before Shavuos (she had a lot to use up). Not a single mention from DH that I should get myself something. But it’s not like we have the money for it anyways. Oh well. Just makes me sad I work so hard and I host I don’t get a break. Wish I could get something too.

Why wait for him to tell you? Why don't you buy something for yourself? Or discuss it with him that you really want something. Also there is so much cheap gorgeous costume jewelry out there maybe you can get something like that.

Ya this is costume. I mean sterling silver (like not real stuff). But we don’t have an extra penny. I can’t ask for jewelry.
I tried looking on Ali express but it’s always hit or miss, often doesn’t look like it does in the picture.

Also I want him to tell me because I want to feel acknowledged and that he thinks im important enough to spend money on and that he remembers about getting me something nice.

I have been saving money here and there in an envelope. $10 here, $5 here...when I hit $2000 I am buying myself something real. It will take time but its something to look forward to.

I hear that but some guys aren't like that so don't deprive yourself of something you want because your dh isn't telling you to buy it. I would have gotten zero pieces of new jewelry in my many years of marriage if I was waiting for dh to tell me to buy myself something. What I do is buy myself presents when I want them. If it's a pricey peice of jewelry I will tell/ask him first.

I’ve also been saving (I sell sourdough, put all cash aside)- to pay off my dentist so I can go back and get more work done lol.
But really I’m hoping it can be for a Sheitel, if the dentist gets paid before then

Ok but that’s not the point. I’m totally fine with the one pair of earrings I have. It would just be so nice if DH remembered to do something nice for me before yuntif.

I don’t want to out myself but somewhere Midwest in the US.

If you live near me I’d love to teach you how to bake Wink

$400??? Wow! I think im at about $180 so I’ve got a ways to go (most people Zelle me and that just goes to regular bills), but that’s a great price

But if he isn't going to at least you can do something nice for yourself. That's how I look at it. No point in wishing for something that's not gonna happen and getting disappointed over it.

Ah, ok. I only asked since this sale was in Monsey.
Iyh you'll get there. My aunt bought a lace top gorgeous sheital from ebm wigs via whatsapp. Think she paid $900. Keep saving a bit each time you sell a loaf and soon youll be able to get a new sheital iyh. Maybe make a separate account titled "pampering" or "gifts" and as soon as you get zelled maybe put in $4 or something so it doesnt go straight to bills
