if I spend less money on stupid things, I will be able to travel, and to buy the things that I really really want, not just blowing it on stupid wastes. and it feels good to be able to spend my money where it should be spent, i.e. wedding gifts, instead of just on my idle whims.
with money in general – lately I’ve been talking with other people about how the search for money never ends, no matter how much one accumulates, it’s never enough. Indeed! I make plenty of money, and my husband makes plenty of money, but we’re still always scrimping and saving and never have enough to do the things we want. I’ve never been careful with money, ever. I’ve always gotten myself into scrapes and had to have my dad or my husband bail me out. No more! I’m going to confront this thing, and I’m going to stop being so reliant on the spending of my money to make me happy. That’s the plan.
