A Spending Wave

I’ve been spending money like it’s growing on trees. It all started innocently enough with a few online purchases and ballooned into a laundry list in just fourteen days.

  • Replacement for my stolen GPS: $175
  • Dress for a wedding: $120
  • New summer dress: $50
  • New summer blouse: $11
  • Two new bras: $35
  • A few nights of take-in: $50
  • A new yoga DVD: $8
  • Cleaning Services purchased through Living Social: $88
  • Orange Roughy: $14 (I’ve always wanted to give it a try.)

I’m sure there are a few others that I’m missing, but that’s all I can think of off the top of my head. I seem to go through waves of spending. I’ll go weeks without buying anything and then all of a sudden I buy a bunch of stuff in a matter of days.

I almost never go to the mall, but somehow I’ve managed to travel there three times in the last two weeks. I don’t think that helped matters much. The search for DVDs on Amazon didn’t help either. I went looking for one thing and wound up with three others.
