Think about it, how many times a week do you eat out? Not just at restaurants but anything from the vending machine at work to stopping at a gas station to get junk and pop? How much do you spend on food that doesn't come from the store?
I myself have been struggling with money since iv been on my own. I was an avid fastfoodie, drank nothing but pop and always stopped at gas stations for pop and candy. And for some reason I could never figure out what happened to my money! Never mind id buy movies all the time, Id say to myself "Its just 5$!" I went years with out buying clothes because I was "Too poor" too. How many time have I been so stressed out with bills? I would just think too myself why cant me and my boyfriend (At that time) Make it?? The fact is I was spending every dime I made plus some! I didn't get my nails done or my hair. I never bought clothes for myself. I never saved. I spent all my money on fast food, pop candy, cigs and movies!
Now I think about it and just wanna smack the old me. I cant believe I spent thousand of dollars going into debt for dumb stuff that made me happy for a few mins.
Any one else have those moments where they realize how much they are spending on stupid stuff, going into debt and not saving any money?
