I ask innocently, because it would be interesting to see where they get their income from since a lot of people on here seem really rich! (seeing as to how much they spend on beauty products alone hehe) Smile What do you do for a living, as well as your husband/wife? If you don't mind answering of course Smile

Me personally, I don't have a wife, and am a full time student for now Smile So I'm still a young one in college

Fun thread! I'm a full time student with a part time job at a real estate marketing firm. SO is a 3D animator with Disney. I'm happy as long as I can afford my IS Clinical, EpidermxII and makeup habit on a regular basis. Laughing

University student. I'm engaged to one too. LOL!
(Going to be finished this year with a Bachelor of Science.)
As far as the money, it comes from my parents which is how I'm able to afford what I'm able to afford.

I'm a property tax arbitrator/real estate agent and my dh is an architectural designer. I've also gotten into alot of DIY skincare so I don't spend alot of $$$. I feel like I get better products.

Would your parents like another daughter? I'm up for adoption. Most people want an infant, and I admit to being older than that, but in the plus column is the fact that I'm already house broken! I'm also quiet, have a really sunny disposition, am easy to get along with and have already finished university so there's no extra tuition to pay!

MermaidGirl: LOL! I'm sure as long as you've had all your shots they'd take you right in.
In fact...with no tuition to pay...they'd probably switch us out right then and there!

I actually asked this question too on another thread: "Is everyone on EDS either rich or very rich?" LOL It does seem everyone has too much money to try so many expensive skincare products. I saw each product offered, and it was like $50+. I'm not rich, and I try samples first. Now I am in to do-it-yourself b/c I can't afford the real deals.

I'm a club manager and my boyfriend is a teacher. I used to get my money from my parents for skincare products and makeup. Since I'm earning my own money now I'm only buying what I really need! Very Happy

My hubby is a real estate inspector and we have our own business that I have been running from home for 24 years. We also flip houses sometimes for fun. I am a retired pediatric psychotherapist but now I just deal with the tantrums of real estate people (not to offend any). We support a son who is in college full time and doesn't work (plus pay for him to date as it keeps him out of our hair), so my skin care is cheap compared to his habits! Laughing Although I should add, he uses IS Clinical too.

I am an accountant for a salmon farming company, sounds so boring lol. Up until a few months ago I also owned my own gym. I love my job and it was never an option to give it up to be at the gym full time.

Working full time and owning my own business was a lot to handle. One of my members asked me to sell it to her and I took the opportunity. I miss having the gym and the chance it gave me to socialize but otherwise have no regrets.

My husband is a picker operator in western Canada for six months of the year . He comes home and flaunts being semi retired and teases me to take time off to play with him.

I really dont spend a lot of money on potions and creams instead I stick to what has been recommended to me by derms and ps's.

Sorry I rambled .

AnnieR, just wanted to let you know, I would never yell at a real estate inspector. They have always been very nice and taken a great deal of time to explain things so that I could explain those things to my clients. Inspectors are an important part of the purchasing process.

So does my boyfriend. He thinks I'm addicted to online shopping (only because it's so hard to get the products from the brands I want). I told him no way. He said it's the first sign of addiction...being in denial!!! Ain't my boyfriend sweet?!?! Laughing

Salli-Thank you for that. I always tease my father-in-law about realtors, he's been in the business 40+ years. People can sometimes take criticism of their house so personal. Or if a deal comes apart, it's always OUR fault (it sort of is if we find too much wrong with a house). We could tell some stories! Laughing

AnnieR, I like to encourage my sellers to get the house inspected prior to putting it on the market prevents alot of headaches. When I'm representing a buyer, I ALWAYS insist that they have an inspection so that they know what they are getting. Sometimes deals don't work because of problems that come up during inspection - not the inspectors fault.
