Great idea FoolFighters !

I hope this thread motivates us to look closely at our spending habits and really recognize when we're wanting to buy stuff on impulse instead of out of necessity or with a conscious purpose .

What are you planning to spend it on ?

When I'm bored , I'll often find myself going to a mall , just to look around and see what's new in the stores . Once I'm there , I end up constantly telling myself " Don't spend money just to spend money ."

I went last week and despite seeing a bunch of impractical and unnecessary things that I got an automatic " WANT " impulse from , I repeated my mantra and ended up with some much-needed shirts that were on sale .

And those " WANT " items ? Completely forgotten by the time I left the store .

On the scratch game that i've already invested so much money into. I have 320 losing $30 tickets, all of which i can enter into the second chance drawing. The more i play before the drawing the better my chances.

I always tell myself, i have nothing better to spend it on, anyway. But i could always save it.. Don't think i have the will power to do so right now though.

I'm in the beginning stages of addiction. I'm not sure i'm ready to stop yet. I probably shouldn't be posting here because i don't have the ability to quit right now, but i'd like to quit some time in the future.
