Another One Bites the Dust

Tuesday, November 10, 2009
I suppose it's that time of year where people are pinching their pockets in order to save up for Christmas.

True, the MARC by Marc Jacobs bag that I'm lusting after isn't super expensive. However, I haven't had a job in almost 2 months. Yes, I have a job that I'm starting on Thursday, but it's still going to be at least another 2-4 weeks before I even see a pay cheque. So needless to say, it's not going to be mine anytime soon. (That being said, it doesn't mean that it, or it's close relative, won't be mine ever, just not in 2009.)

So it's true, I too, am on a shopping ban of sorts. Nothing compared to Nicole's ordeal, but rather, I'm just trying not to make crazy outlandish purchases.

Yes, I know that I have a job, but it's not permanent, so it will end probably around May. Plus, my best friend moved to London (Boo! Hiss!) and we're hoping to go to Egypt for Easter, so I need to save for that too.

So, here's to all of us who are trying to save some money, for whatever reason, and end up crying ourselves to sleep at night because there are so many fabulous things that we have to hold ourselves back from buying. (A lack of shopping creates a void in your life! Men can't understand it.)

Good Luck Everyone!

Ugh, I put myself on a shopping ban until the end of this month after I went online yesterday and checked my credit card statement. Although, I did start my Christmas shopping early which partly explains it. At least it wasn't all for myself

:(

Aww understandable. I'm not letting myself shop for myself until after Christmas to save up money for presents without compromising my savings rate. We'll support each other!

traveling is more important than shopping in the long run!
