I know, I know it has been a while that I have posted and I have not forgotten. I have just been really busy with work and life and well the Season in general which leads me to my topic today.
Okay, Okay I will admit it. I love to shop and that also means that I love spending money though it is very rare that I am able to shop as it very rare that I have money to do so. I also have a huge issue with saving and I have to have a real goal to work too if I really want to save.
I worry however that my love of shopping and spending money has an influence on others though as I have noticed that when I am with people who may or may not have a lot of money and/or like to shop have a tendency to spend money while I am around and are encouraged by me to do so. I will now give examples:
· Recently I was out with my mother and she was pondering what she was going to get my nephews for Christmas. We were in the toy section and saw a couple of thing and bought them with my encouragement. Now she was going to buy them anyway but I wonder if wasn’t there would she have?
· While I was with my last partner he got a Foxtel subscription which he never planned on getting before meeting me but did so because I enjoyed a couple of shows on Foxtel. He also bought a fancy and expensive vacuum cleaner upon my advice and also bought a new car because I didn’t like the one that he had.
· My current boyfriend never wanted a credit card but got one this year so that we could buy my mother a new dishwasher as a present for all occasions (Birthday, Mother’s day and Christmas). He also used to get the computer for my birthday/Christmas present. Once again this was on my encouragement.
I know this probably does not sound like a lot but it does worry me a bit. It may just be my anxiety though making mountains out of molehills though. I mean mother was intending on buying the boys presents anyway and we were planning on getting the dishwasher for her and I was going to pay half the credit card just made it easier. He was also planning on getting me the laptop for my b’day anyway. I think was ex was planning on getting a new vehicle but I think he was planning on getting a motorbike instead. It was my idea to get the Mazda instead though cause I like them.
Well any who my shopping is done for the Christmas and I have also started on next year as well. Next year in general is a big year as myself, my mother and one of my sister-in-laws hit milestone birthdays. I am also supposed to be going to the Philippines for a wedding and hopefully also Japan. There are also big movies to see in particular:
Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice
Captain America: Civil War,
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Star Wars: Rogue One.
Speaking of Star Wars I am seeing the Force Awakens on Tuesday with my bf and the couple that are getting married in the Philippines next year and I am really looking forward to that.
If I don’t post before the Christmas or New Year have a happy and fun, safe and prosperous one.
