I Had Shoppers Restraint Today!

February 14th, 2007 at 11:39 pm

I went to Mervyn's to pay a bill off today. While standing in line to pay, next to the shoe dept no less, I looked around from my vantage point and saw some shoes I wouldn't mind owning.

I slowly made my way through the line to the cashier and paid off a $70 bill.

I couldn't leave without looking (dangerous I know) but I did look and I DID NOT buy, even though I saw 2 pairs of shoes and some things for our upcoming vacation to Cabo San Lucas.

I think I need to rework my spending plan to allow for some purchases before our trip in June.

    A great thing to do when you need some stuff but don't want to get ridiculous about buying stuff is to, whenever you see something you want, don't buy it then but wait 24 hours. Then if you still want it, and it works with the budget - go for it!

    Delayed buying!

    !!~~YES~~!! to working what you think you'll need into the future budget!!

    BTW, welcome to the boards...I love your self-title of CHO! I may copy you next time someone asks what I do.

    Thanks yummy64 & Lux Living Frugalis.

    I still want the shoes and the running shoes... but they are on sale all the time so I will wait until I have the cash.

    I have several gift cards from Macy's for Christmas gifts that were returned, so if I feel the need to shop I'll use those and it'll be no skin off my back, or dollars out of my acct Smile
    Like my title huh? Feel free to use it.
