I'm trying this new thing. It's called saving money by not leaving my house. It's actually working out kind of well for me. I figure, as long as I don't leave my house, I won't spend the money that I don't actually have (excluding the pay-per-view rentals and ebay purchases...). As long as you don't leave your house, it doesn't count. Sort of.
The hardest thing I have had to do so far with my money saving plan is not upgrade my phone this year. This is the first time in the history of my whole entire life that I have denied myself something shiny and new - and it really, really sucks. This is what has to be done though - as hard as it is for me, I just don't need it.
My mom came to
visit take home her devil car. She is just the sweetest - she brought baked goods for my co-workers, made us stuffed peppers for dinner and then set me free so I could see this movie with my friend. I had a really good night. I needed a really good night - and all was good.
This morning was one of those "I'm not leaving my bed" kind of day. I watched a few old movies, stayed in my pj's until well after noon. It was lovely. Then I remembered, my mom is visiting, and I could see she was not enjoying my laziness. So I showered, and got dressed - sort of, and off we went to a thrift store.
|I saw this at the thrift store a couple weeks ago. Today it was gone. Somebody is not spending their money wisely...I mean they have BROKEN ARMS!|
It was hard not spending money - especially in one of my most favourite places in the world! There were so many things I wanted to buy... a little glass bird, printed Tupperware...I left it all behind to protect my bank account. It was hard.
It's like an alcoholic hanging out in a bar, only instead of cheap bourbon, my vice is your used shit. I spent the rest of the day cowering under my covers and putting my bank card in a block of ice.
How do you save money?
