    I'm cheap as fuck. I shop at thrift stores and consignment shops and occasionally Ross. I like to attend clothing swaps and the free market.

    However, food is my weakness and I have no problem ordering the most expensive thing on the menu.

    So you are a big spender and buy whatever you want anytime you want?

    I think the title should be: "What Do You Splurge On?".

    I also splurge on vacations...I'm still as cheap as I can be...researching the best deals and all, but I like to try and not obsess about the cost of things when we travel.

    I'm sensitive to chemicals so anything I can do to avoid them. I bought custom furniture so I'd know all the materials they use. Organic bed bedding, cotton window shades. Organic cotton clothing, bras etc. organic skin care products and makeup. I guess I'll pay any price to avoid toxic chemicals.

    I'm easy to please with just about anything...except, it better taste good. That's not to say that I don't eat crap food...if it tastes good, then bring it on.

    Sounds like that can get extremely expensive. Do you ever make your own skincare? I do a craft night once a month and we made sunscreen, lip balm and deodorant a couple of months ago. I just FEEL better about using it.

    It is expensive. But I don't have much choice. It can be shocking though how expensive it gets.

    No I don't make my own products. That's awesome that you do. I use pure shea butter for my lips and eyebrows etc. so I use a lot of pure products. No preservatives.

    Have you ever been to Lush?

    Yeah, we used shea butter and coconut oil those products. I wouldn't say I make them...it was a one time thing. I'm too lazy to do it on my own.

    I expect this type of response from the shut in retard Schmoopy, not you. I am allergic to pesticides and other chemicals. I can't breathe around them. And I get chemical burns from regular skin care products or detergent. I was tested by an MD and he diagnosed me. So fuck off and buy a bed full of flame retardant and choke to death. :)

    No. A big issue is I'm allergic to coconut and anything derived from it. Almost everything on the market has some form of coconut in it. I get a shampoo made by a woman in Wisconsin and another with Shea made in Africa. That's it. I use Cleure and Real Purity makeup.
