Saving For MAC - Crazy or Smart

With the economy it is hard to imagine spending the big bucks on new MAC product lines such as Dame Edna,Brunette, Blond and RedHead, Hello Kitty and Hello Kitty Koutore. Trying to find drugstore brands that compete may not appeal to some but present a fabulous challenge to others. Let step back and put things in perspective. I know the hello kitty line is coming and I seen a few things I would love to have however my budget says NO...so what I have began to do is to save, yes I said the "S" word SAVE. I buy most of my MAC products at a MAC counter near me so I buy a $30 gift card everytime I get paid and by the time the line gets here in Feb I would have saved a total of $150 and that is my budget. I will not allow myself to buy more. This is the only way I can afford to do this. So since deprivation is not an option for me, I decided to cut back in other places such as taking my lunch, and finding creative things to do at home with the kids and my husband. Yes some may say I am crazy, but it something that I enjoy and what woman does not want to look beautiful..
