Budget Bummer

IMG_3106

The withdrawals have finally hit me.  I’ve been really good with the budget and breaking my addiction to spending, but I’m having a rough patch right now.  All I want to do is spend money.  I want to buy crap at the flea market.  I want to buy crap at Ikea.  I want to buy cacti at the Farmer’s Market.  But I can’t because I’m on a budget and $150 a week is just not enough.  Call it a moment of weakness.  I have to remind myself that buying crap is what got me into trouble to begin with.  So I shall go crapless for now.

Maybe I need to devise a new game to distract myself from spending.  Think of my $150 a week as a $20 a day with a $10 bonus cushion.  Better to obsess over numbers than things?
