It's getting out of hand again... my spending I mean. I don't know why it's so hard for me to look but not buy. And it's not like I buy a lot of frivolous stuff, but the little things do add up. And then I start to feel guilty about EVERYTHING I buy, like soap and deodorant :)
So, how can I change this? It's time to start saving instead of spending, since Keith and I have some plans in place that will require a bit of spending in a few months. I've already been doing well on the grocery bill, sticking within a budget. But this summer I'm going to need a lot of new clothes, since I've changed sizes so much over the past 4 years or so. How can I do this all without breaking the bank, and yet still get some nice quality clothes? I'm totally not sure how this is going to work. Second hand shops are great, but if it costs me $30 just to drive to the city, that's hardly saving much in the end. Sigh.
I'm going to need major will power to not spend in the next few months. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
