Making work pay credit: An excuse to go shopping for Joe's jeans?



Changejar President Barack Obama is pushing for his Making Work Pay credit to hit our pocketbooks next month. Officials estimate you could see as much as $13 per week extra per paycheck.

Some may scoff at the thought of a mere $13, but savvy Deal Divas know better. Here’s a roundup of what you could buy with Obama’s making work pay credit (assuming you don’t need the cash for important things, like rent and food):

  • One new Wet N Wild Lip Gloss per day, $1.99 at CVS
  • One trendy wear-till-it-falls-apart Forever 21 shirt per week, $13.95
  • One 100% bamboo nightie from Shirts of Bamboo in St. Petersburg every two weeks, $28.
  • One 60-minute chakra balancing massage at the Aveda Institute in St. Petersburg each month, $50 plus tip.
  • One partial foil and deep conditioning treatment with a beginning stylist at Tribeca Salon in Tampa every three months, $125 plus tip.

What are you going to spend the extra cash on?
