Listen, I have not bought anything. The fire under my ass is that I am 27 years old and I live at my mother's house and I have for the past 2 years. I'm tired of being hassled every time I sleep all day because I'm hung over, or get a package in the mail, or haven't picked up my room enough. Imagine trying to bring a boy over. Yeah, well, it doesn't happen. For the first year I was in school getting my masters degree, but since August I've been working (teaching). I don't make much money, but I definitely don't need to spend it on jeans when I already have a bazillion pairs.

Just think of what that money is going to buy you once you have it saved up! For me, I fantasize about walking around my apartment naked, smoking pot, being hung over for 2 days, and living in a den of my own filth and not having a soul say anything to me about it.

haha ok guys I have a funny little shopping-ban story. for you:

So yesterday I tell my bf to pull the juice container out of the fridge (he made orange juice about 8 months ago and never touched it since, I'm allergic so I haven't touched it so there is no way I'm cleaning it).

Jokingly he says: "I'll give you $100 to drink it." we sat for about 5 mins debating about how much I had to drink and the deal breaker was that, he insisted, I had to look at it before.

Although we were just joking around the saddest thought went through my head: "OMG! I could buy those Gingers on HF!" haha isn't that terrible! Of course I wouldn't have done it though, I most likely would have died.

Oh and just so you know...the juice had been condensed from a 1/2 jug to 1 inch and had a perfect circle of mold on the top. The mold was so solid it wouldn't even go down the sink. hahaha ick.

Omg! That's insane!

I need some help with my ipod search The options:

Overstock.com (supposedly HORRIBLE w/ electronics): Refurbished w/updates $345
Newegg: New w/o updates $385
Apple: New w/updates $400

I'm a bit nervous about using overstock... should I just suck it up and pay a little more to get it from apple? Only problem with that is that I cna't pay w/my paypal balance, so I'd have to use my CC and figure out how to transfer $400

Dieselmomma - you have made me laugh - I needed cheering up - had a crap day. Did you buy the Gingers?
post #182 of 495

so glad we are talking about all this shopping in the 'shopping bad' thread! hahaha

dieselmomma....im just glad i wasnt eating when i read that post! lol

NO! I didn't buy the gingers. No money = no jeans.

I've also decided that since I really don't need more jeans that when I get money I'm going to get laser hair removal...which my bf offerred to pay 1/2 of!

Yippie!!

Oh. And I'm just glad the juice jug isn't in my fridge anymore!

Hmm.... single life is pretty costly too...

Going out, partying, cabbing, taking the subway, buying drinks, buying food, and etc really adds up!

I really need to look at my books... Given all these anticipated expenses, shopping for clothes is pretty much on the backburner.

OMG sooo many good jeans in my size..... must be strong!

Okay, I'll spill.. I spent $40 on Friday... but it was all for gifts and half of it was already paid for through my gift certificate... and well, you can't exactly skip out on gift-giving.

$42
- 3 HUGE candles (Felicia's upcoming birthday)
- 4 mirror glass candle coasters (Felicia's upcoming birthday)
- 1 velvet scrapbook (Zoe's upcoming birthday)
- Guide to Paris handbook (Amanda's belated gift)
- 1 set of gift bow and ribbon wrapping (for wrapping gifts)

I went to The World's Largest Bookstore and everything was on clearance from 50-75% off. So I got a good deal.. except on the Paris book that was regular price.

Oh... Annie, I've been much, much worse that you this weekend!! :hides:
post #188 of 495
callire!!! tisk.

So I found something I need to spend money on to curb my spending. I bought 2 photo albums, 6 cards, and 1 set of 3 photo frames (ok ok the frames are for me but they were $7 with the card purchases). All for mothers day/fathers day.

I'm now uploading around 200-230 photos to send to my mommy, mother in law, granny, and sister. I'll need to pick up a photo album for my sister too.

I love giving gifts I think gift wrapping should be an international sport.
