So what did I do?
Well first off I should probably let you know that I am not a traveler. Never was, never will be. Don't try to talk me out of it, many have tried, and failed.
So my vacations tend to turn into a staycation where I usually end up doing what everyone does on their vacations...
SPEND TOO MUCH MONEY!
How you may ask did I manage to do that and stay home?
Well everyone decided to start having sales on stuff I needed. Clothes, shoes, electronics, you name it they had it on sale.
Note to self, DO NOT take vacations near major holidays!
I really hate that. Not because I overspent or bought stuff I neither liked nor needed. Case in point:
|Adorable Jacket down from $99 to $25 after sale and coupons|
Still I hate to spend money. I know it's necessary at times (I do like to eat) and I got really good deals, but still...I don't like to spend money because I always end up feeling guilty. Why? Because I SPENT MONEY.
It's a sickness. I blame The Great Depression.
No I am not old enough to have lived through it, but my mother and my father both did. Basically they came out with two differing attitudes.
Mom - Save everything because everything could be gone tomorrow.
Dad - Spend everything because everything could be gone tomorrow.
Confusing huh? No wonder I have spending money issues.
Still I got a lot of quality stuff I needed, at prices I could afford, including one BIG ticket item. I think I'm traumatized for life on that one, because I hate to spend money. Have I mentioned that?
Maybe I need therapy. Oh wait, that costs money.
Great, I'm cheap and neurotic.
Excuse me while I hide my credit cards from myself and try to forget where I hid them.
