Well, this is very exciting. I have wanted to start this blog for some time now, and am extremely enthused to finally be writing it.
Silver Spoon Taste On a Plastic Fork Budget was a concept I came up with a few years ago and have been chewing on ever since. I am constantly writing hypothetical blog posts in my head for my hypothetical blog, and it wasn’t until my extremely supportive husband Wilson encouraged me to actually write the blog that I even considered it. That was about six months ago. After much internal waffling and self-doubt, I have finally decided to go for it. I hope you enjoy.
My name is Anna, and I am plagued with extremely expensive taste. Hello Anna. I cannot, for the life of me, ever innately choose something that is the least expensive of the options. I always, always, choose the most expensive. Always. It is exhausting to constantly choose something that is the most expensive, but more importantly, out of your budget. Let me explain.
I walk into a furniture store, I pick out the most expensive item. Ah yes, of course that campaign-style dresser I am dying for is $5,000.
I go to a restaurant, I want to order the priciest meal. I’ll have the lobster please. It’s $150? Never mind a side salad will be fine…
I walk into a department store, and only want the Jimmy Choos. Now how can I justify those $750 Jimmy’s when what I really came here for was some $10 mascara…
You get the picture. Having terrifyingly expensive taste is only a problem when you do not have an extremely large budget. As a 25-year-old marketing associate, my budget is practically nil, and yet this fact somehow does not alleviate my expensive, silver spoon taste.
In this blog, my goal is to share with you, my glorious readers, how I navigate my pricey taste and get what I want for the money I have to spend. Living luxuriously while still living within my means. Living within your means is something that is largely taken for granted for today, and I am determined to help change this priority through Silver Spoon Taste.
With a little bit of creativity, a good eye, and a lot of spray paint, you can do just about anything. Happy reading.
