So after coming home to a card to collect or a courier package or two on my doorstep every day for the last little while, I decided that this pay I wasnt going to buy anything this pay, aside from paying my bills, getting food and petrol.
I'm talking about 14 days of not buying crap, 14. And two of those days the shops are closed due to Easter.
Two hours into my pay day I was desperate to leave work early and get to the mall. I spent all day thinking of reasons I could excuse myself for breaking the rules. On the way home I went to the petrol station then stopped to do my grocery shopping - I skipped the aisle with the non food items.
At about 10pm I cracked and spent $6.50 on smurfberries.
Today I went to the mall to get some medication, I couldnt even trust myself to go into other shops. I power walked head down to the other end of the mall to dick smith to buy a cable for my mp3 player to replace the one that had broken in my car. Once home I bought a $1.30 cluedo app. Seconds later I regretted that.
So two days in and I've spent $20.29 over what I should have. Not good, but better than the huge shopping spree I would do every payday.
Only 12 days to go........
