I seriously have a shopping problem! I have pieces on hold and am still looking for new things to get. I really need to pace myself. I’ve still been really good at not just charging everything on my credit card. I can obviously easily do that, but then that would be considered a relapse from my “not charging on my credit cards,” which is bad.
However, I did just charge Kullen’s Burberry button-up on my Nordstrom card today. But come on, who’s not gonna charge $143 for a dress-shirt? I’m not even sure he’s gonna like it, but I thought it’d be nice for him to have for his new 9-5. I saw some cute and less in-your-face Burberry ones online, but I’m unsure what his sleeve length and all that crap is. But maybe I will end up ordering him something like that online, it’s cheaper and it’s less “flashy Burberry” which he actually might like better. But I guess we will see tomorrow when I give it to him.
Anyway, back to my smarter spending. I’m so bad at resisting spending on others, yet I can almost easily not spend money on myseld. So besides the newly-purchased Burberry dress-shirt, I have not charged my credit cards for anything and still believe in myself—I can totally just spend my own money sparingly, not charge things. I’m slowly but surely getting those credit card bills down, some minor bumps along the way that kinda put me off track (speeding ticket and trip to New York…), but that’s life and shit happens. So I’m just gonna be careful with what I’m spending on and how often I’m spending. At least I’ve gotten to that point to where I’m actually worrying about what I’m buying instead of just buying every damn thing. That’s pretty good for me, but I know I can do better and will do better! Because I sure as well do not want to be in credit card debt past this summer. I need to have my chase card paid off by the end of July which is definitely feasible, I’m pretty sure. I also want to have my Nordstrom card 75% paid off by the end of July which I believe in myself that I can do, as well. SELF-CONTROL. That’s it, just some damn self-control.
I post way too much about my spending and expenses, it stresses me out. I am twenty years old. I should not be talking about money this much. But I guess by having everything written down, it makes me easier for me to realize that this is important and that I really need to be better with my money. Seeing everything in front of me makes me feel like I’m getting somewhere with it and makes me a little less flustered. Phew.
Goodnight. Interview at Saks tomorrow morning, gotta make sure I look rested and sassy.
Happy 22nd birthday to my betchhh, Audrey Pierce in about one minute.
