I'm going to talk a little girly here. Well, the subject is about an investment, however the topic of the subject is makeup. huh? what? trust me on this. I wouldn't steer you wrong.
Okay, so my foundation alone costs around $45. it has, however, lasted me 2 years. It's a mineral powder foundation and I have to tell you- I put makeup on nearly every day, and it's lasted. assume I put makeup on 300 out of 365 days a year. this foundation has lasted me 2 years. so... 600 days. 600 divided by 45 is around 13 cents a day. Now, I still have 1/2 a container left of this particular foundation. which means, my $45 investment will cost me when I'm done, about 6.5 cents a makeup application.
Now, what do I mean by all of this? Well, 1- 10 cents a day to make up your face (I'm including other makeup like mascara and eyeliner/shadow, lipstick etc) will do a WORLD of wonder for your attitude, and 2- sometimes paying more in the beginning for something long-term. It's always cheaper to pay for 6 months of car insurance than per month; even cheaper to buy the year in advance.
Most of you know I'm a cloth diaper mama. Well, I will be as soon as my stash is back up. In fact, I only have a few more covers to make and I'll be off the disposables permanently. (unless he gets really sick or something.) Well, CDing costs on average $3300 less than using disposables. It's an investment that pays off in the long-run.
What investments are you staring at lately?
