Sometimes I am so inconsistent.
Recently, I was going in on a gift for a baby shower with my sisters and I was like...no more than $35. Other baby showers last year I was spending about $75. Am I just so tired of engagement party, bachlorette party, bridal shower, baby announcement, baby shower, bring home the baby gift....all in 2 years sometimes - sometimes quicker, sometimes longer, either way that is a lot of time and money for a single person. And it is not just one person...multiply that by a few.
This weekend I also attended a 50th birthday party and I had no problem dropping $150 on a gift for someone I don't know that well. Is it because a 50th birthday is important and I wanted this person to really get a start on their bucket list and enjoying themselves for a while since they've had a hard few years?
Then I feel guilty that I am being uneven, but I can't let things like that bother me.
