Dreams of Money and Bras

There’s one thing we all have in common:  money.  We love it, we hate it, and we need it.  Sometimes we even dream about it.

One dream is “The Lottery Dream”.  If you won millions of dollars, what would you do with it?  Since you won an extravagant amount of money, you would probably do something extravagant like quit your job, travel, or buy a new house.

Another dream is “The Inheritance Dream”.  What would you do if you inherited a modest amount, say $20,000.00?  Since you inherited a modest amount, you would probably do something modest like pay down bills or put money toward a new car.

A dream I’ve had for about two years is “The Paycheck Dream”.  “What would I buy if I had a paycheck?” I’ve often wondered.  I’ve had a long time to think about it.  The first thing I would buy would be bras.  Yes, bras!  Being the no paycheck = no purchases sort, that means I haven’t had anything new for two years.  Since, like most women, I loathe bra shopping, you can bet that my bras are more than two years old.  Well, they can take their somewhat-elasticized selves off to the landfill, because my dream has come true.  Within a couple of weeks, I will be starting a new job.  Not much is known about it yet, as we’re in the negotiating phase of things.  But I do know this:  I’m going to get new bras.

Why are the darn things so expensive, anyway?  Besides costing money, bras are actually kind of like money:  we love them, we hate them, and we need them.  Sometimes we even dream about them.


  1. ahhh new bras LOL....I wish...I'm wearing the ones that are too big for my daughter.
    congrats on the job :)

  2. OMG I'm sorry HOW do your bras last that long?! LOL Seriously, I despise bras and shopping for them. Last year I was about ready to chuck them period because I couldn't find a bra where the straps would stay up. I finally bought a couple racerback bras and THAT frustration is finally over. And every time I need new bras, I'm amazed how few I can get before the total is $100.

    Speaking of which, I have two Victoria Secret gift cards burning a hole in my wallet. Hmmm . . . lol

  3. congrats on the job!

    got nothing on the the bra thing...

  4. Reminds me of when I got out of school and got my first proper adult job. First pay = all new underwear. such luxury that was. Now I have a job but still can't afford to buy underwear.

  5. I wish I had one of those...a job, that is.

  6. I need a new bra too. I have a job, I just don't want to pay for the damn expensive things.

  7. J.Day, my bras lasted because I treated them with kids gloves: gentle washing in lingerie bag, hang to dry, etc.

    Yup, things are pretty exciting around here: employment and new lingerie on the horizon!

  8. My lottery dream is that I would immediately enroll in school full time so I could get a job I love afterwards. Almost seems silly but it's still what I would do.
