So I was walking home down the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, its one of my favorite walks. It was so cool tonight with the snow and all but to top it off the twinkle lights went on as I was walking along. When I say twinkle lights I don't mean blinking lights, just white lights, maybe this is wrong but they twinkle like the stars to me so I'm calling them twinkle lights.
So I spent money on something this afternoon. I can't say on what or how much, gulp. Frivolous and wonderfull but I can't say or write it out in the open.
This has brought up my silly irresponsible money habits.
So after today
-Very, limited Starbucks income. No really I mean it, this is an addiction I want to give up anyways. Had tea at home this afternoon, yeap a big step for me. You know Starbucks is very mean, they have THREE locations within five minutes of my apartment, they are evil. At least two of these locations know my drinks, and they are nice.
-I will not buy sock yarn till I've used what I have , which is two pairs worth. This concept can cover a lot of other things as well.
-I will not buy my kalie's,in chestnut of course, for a long while. I was going to get these instead of boots and finish making leg warmers. I already have clogs so I'll still finish my leg warmers.
-Food. Gosh I haven't cooked in so long, never been all that good at it, and my kitchen is so tiny. But my goal is to eat less readymade stuff from Whole Foods and actually make food. Less less less sweets.
-There will be more to this list but its a start.
So I was thinking about all this silly stuff I spend money on, I have so much already, if I could eliminate a lot of my bad habits it would save money, be less stressfull, healthier, and somewhat of a relief.That got me more excited about the whole list of things is the sense of relief. I know perfectly well some things I buy or eat to fill an emotional void or something. I don't know if I'm making any sense but I think this will lead to good things. Something as silly as Starbucks has been really hard for me to stop doing. I just want to be happy with myself not my things. Like the process of making the socks to be just as good as the results.
Sorry to ramble but this has been on my mind lately, even before my purchase today. Ironic though that spending money gets me excited about not spending money. Yikes.
I did laundry today therefore blocking of near finished sweaters happened. If they fit all that will be left is buttons and trimming ends. My sofa cushions came in really handy today.
