Confessions of a Shopaholic.

In my last post I told you about how I was going to save up my money and buy things that I really wanted. I am very sad to tell you this, but so far..that isn't working out.

Today my friend asked me to go shopping with her, and this is her last day in town before returning to college, so naturally, I said of course I would. Today I ended up spending most of the money that I made from babysitting last night, but that is including the 2 meals we got while we were out shopping. I got a new purse, 2 new pairs of earrings, tights, mascara, and a few other small items.

So, I have realized that I truly do need to put a jar aside that I will use to save up money in. I think that half of the money I earn from babysitting, helping around the house, or whatever it may be should go into this jar. I will not reach inside of this jar until this semester of school is out. This way I can properly reward myself for succeeding on completing yet another school year. Brilliant!

We will see how long this lasts.

The girl you can never trust with a credit card.

I'm doing something similiar except I'm going to save all $5 notes and loose change.

Good luck with yours!
