Cutting up the "gold" card
Friday, June 29, 2012
Ahh, I remember that day. The first day my Starbucks gold card arrived in the mail. The way it shimmered and glistened with the joy of many iced soy coffees. *sigh*
Tomorrow, I'm cutting up my gold card.
Why not today, you ask? Well, I still have 2.50 left on it and its money I've already *spent*.
I made this decision a few days ago.. looking at my finances, I need to get things better under control. I realize I have to take out some student loans to go to school but I could definitely be making payments to them instead of racking them up and spending my money elsewhere. Plus, it is a calorie eater. I don't binge on juice drinks. I don't drink soda. Why then would I waste calories AND money on a daily Starbucks? There are so many better ways to get my morning energy.
That being said, *sips her coffee* I may miss this ritual but hopefully I won't miss the extra few lbs it keeps on me or spending the 80.00/month in my budget.
Hello, better life! Goodbye, Gold card..
