Spending habits

A taboo subject for some; but recently I’ve been spending money like it’s going out of fashion.

My job entails 9 hours a day in front of a computer and mostly online, you know how it is, the adverts pop up luring me in……….come look at this Marlene, you’ll really like this and before you know it, I’m getting an email confirming the delivery date!

I’m carrying around everywhere I go this handy little jotter from the Zoella range.  On one side of the page is my list of things to do for the week and on the other, I’m writing my spending.  Talk about facing your fears…..

Its so easy now a days with the likes of Paypal and contactless, you don’t feel like your parting with your hard earned cash.  Now don’t get me wrong, my business started with Paypal, I purchase most of my online shopping with it & its an amazing secure service but it’s so easy to spend.

So far today I’ve bought a new pair of trainers, 2 chopping boards and I watched a you tube video at lunch time and the girl had a gorgeous pair of leggings with pearls down the side from Zara.  They were £25.99 but I went on to the Zara website and spent £71 it struck a cord, time to rein in it.

Please tell me I’m not alone…………….

    Of course, you are not alone 🙂 I usually buy things using Paypal. I am sure that your pearls are beautiful
