    Internet Spending Is Bad!

    Whatever you do, DO NOT spend your money on the internet unless you're getting something extremely worth while.  Online shopping is a big business and there are a lot of people there to rip you off.  I've seen things on the internet such as hypnosis MP3's, psychic...

    Living Beyond My Means- Kinda

    OK, so I guess I don't literally live beyond my means- I'm only spending the money I have- but I'm almost completely out of money, and I just keep spending it.  And as far as everyone knows, I still have a lot of money, because I still spend like I was, and I'm the only...

    Me and my fiancé don't argue much,

    but THIS subject is something that always seems to rile him up a little. He hates how much money I spend, but I personally think that I don't buy anything more than what we need. I just buy a little too much of it. For example, if I go to the grocery store.. I'll buy 2 packs...

    I don't have much of it,

    therefore I spend most of it. I should start saving up for something, but for that, you need a reasonable amount of cash.

    I used to go crazy with online shopping.

    .. But I realized it was getting out of hand and I cut myself off... I don't do it nearly as much as I used to. There's just some emotional gratification you get from buying something. But I found other ways, better ways, to deal with my emotions. :)
