I'm a Big-Fat Failure

Georgetown? I loved it on Saturday. I bought one top from Urban ($10), one top ($29) and one nightgown ($29) from Anthropologie, and a gorgeous dress from a little boutique ($60-orig $118!). In total: $128.

I have just completely bombed May. But you know what? I kind of don’t care. You ever feel like once you fail, you figure you may as well fail big? That’s kind of what I’ve been doing.

Apathy is such a deadly little sickness in this saving game, but I’m determined not to let it kill the next two weeks. Right now my plan is to survive without spending any this week. That means nothing. If I can do that, this weekend might be a bit more enjoyable. I will just have to pay penance with June’s check. And try to get as many side jobs as I can get.

Ugh. I hate shopping hangovers.

  • No! You aren’t a failure! Sometimes you just need a little break, a treat, a good deal here or there (just not EVERY month)! Take it in stride. Maybe you can find a way to make extra money this month to make up the difference? Selling clothes to a consignment shop? Working overtime?

  • Don’t worry about it! You have no idea how jealous I am that you can buy those things. I can’t wait until my husband and I are out of school so we can work all year and not spend thousands of dollars on tuition. I will definitely buy more clothes then. Of course, I live in the middle of nowhere Kansas, so it is a bit more difficult to find places to shop. Enjoy your new clothes!

  • It’s been a hard road to NOT spend this month

    I still ended up buying 2 wrap dresses and a necklace from Etsy, a Belkin travel charger, Travel slippers and 2 chocolate bars.

    Around $269 is the damage. But I had some money left over? :)
