Urrrrrgh. I’m so frustrated.
Are you a saver or a spender?
Me? I’m a spender. And so is my husband. This pretty much makes for a disaster of a financial situation! While we don’t live beyond our means (anymore), we are certainly living to the very tip of them.
I find it hard to believe how little income we lived on for the first 16 months of my son’s life, before I went back to work. We very much fit in to the “the more you make the more you spend” concept.
I’m currently working on a list about a mile long of things I want. My dream Christmas wish-list!
My wardrobe needs a serious update. I am a hopeless shopper, always picking up bits and pieces that are on sale, but never having anything to go with them. Or they’re too dressy for every day wear, or too big or too small. But I also need new running shoes, as mine are worn out and the ones I bought to replace them are not the right kind of running shoe for my foot/stride. Who knew?
Why am I sharing this? For a couple of reasons. One, I need ideas on saving money! If you’re a saver, PLEASE share how you do it in the comments below? Two, I’m also doing it because some believe if you send things out into the universe, you get what you ask for. My jury is still out on that theory, because I know some people who have been dealt some pretty shit hands, and I know they did not ask for any of it. Three, there might just be someone out there who can help me or is willing to send me running shoes, or a new phone, or a Westfield gift card. Anyone? Can’t blame me for trying!
