If I had a credit card, I would probably be deeply in debt now. This is because of all the enticing things sold online and because of how easy it is to spend money online if you have a credit card. I just came across a website selling exquisite handmade jewellery made out of polymer clay. They feature stuff like canteloupe, coconutes, avocados, bananas, etc. in miniature sizes. The come in earrings and necklaces. But when I saw the prices, I nearly fainted! What?! USD16-25 for those little things?!
It may not seem like a lot to Americans but with the current exchange rate, that's still too pricey for me. Also, I can get polymer clay earrings for so much less in Malaysia. Maybe not as attractive and exquisite. But you can't beat the price : RM10 (USD3.20) for 3 pairs of earrings; RM19.90 (USD6.35) for a bracelet; etc.
But, still, I get very tempted! It's a good thing that I DON'T have a credit card!
