Interesting observation:

May 26th, 2015 at 11:59 am

As the reality of having little to no extra funds until next payday (extraneous category was totally depleted and then some), my sudden whim for wants increases.

< in money, > in wants ?!

What is that about?

I'm rather disgusted with myself and should never meander around Sams during the early hours when they let Business Card holders in. I actually stopped at looked at $89 Coach sunglasses (?!) and a three-tier tray made of galvanize steel for $24.99 (?!) (One decorating blog I follow does sinfully delicious home vignette decorating in one of those - Why couldn't I?). And an orange yard stool (heavy glass maybe)down to $19 from $39 (but, it would match the colors in my neutral and drab family room!)

I really don't know what do say to myself. I am literally stretching my dollars and turning in my pennies for solvency (I could use credit cards or transfer from my savings in the event of a "real" emergency). Where is my fortitude?

Wow, I am feeling really off-kilter and out-of-whack.

    So you didn't buy anything right? I think it is okay to look although it does make one want more usually. Looking is free. I honestly try to avoid malls, magazines, Pinterest and decorating blogs. The less time I spend around those places the better I feel. Smile And I say good for you noticing...since that is an important aspect for avoiding the spending!

    Not a red cent spent over the two items I was there for (apples and frozen blueberries)! Definitely making choices reinforces my "intentionality" living. Smile

    Well, at least you didn't buy the items .. Sam's and Costco sure can be places of temptation ...

    Resist! Resist! Sending you frugal vibes. I have a tremendous itch to decorate too, but have talked myself into massive decluttering before I do anything. Good for you for walking away!

    Just like going on a diet and then craving everything you didn't even want before!
