Anyway, today I had a small bout of impulse purchasing. But, like this article says, if we treat paying off debt the same way as dieting, then we must be forgiving of occasional lapses. Just because I bought some stuff today does not negate the positive progress of the last 12 days, right?
I went to the store with the following (mental) list:
And I left the store with:
Snapea crisps (these are so good, you guys, like chips but AMAZING)
Candied salmon (ready to eat!)
Glamour magazine (it's the man issue!)
(they did not have any barbecue sauce, TRAGEDY)
So, not so horrible in the grand scheme of things. But I do still, clearly, need to work on controlling impulse spending.
Oh, and PS, at the end of 2010 I subscribed to Cosmopolitan magazine, since I seem to wind up buying it every month anyway, and when you subscribe is $1 an issue rather than $5 an issue. BUT IT HAS NOT ARRIVED YET. It is in the store, and I did not buy it, but WHAT IS THE POINT OF SUBSCRIBING if I don't actually get the magazine? Hop to it, Hearst publications.
