Yesterday i was stupid.
I saw a smoothie.
I wanted the smoothie.
I BOUGHT THAT SMOOTHIE WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT!!!
Meanwhile, my mother bought $1 ice cream cones for everyone else, but said if i wanted that expensive smoothie, i could buy it myself. As i previously stated, i went ahead and paid for it.
And than i went to buy that lip gloss i've been wanting FOREVER (Burt's Bees lip shimmer)...which ending up being twice as expensive as i thought it was.
But i bought it anyway.
THAN....i realized that i had just COMPLETELY blown my very important fall/winter clothes budget.
We are going shopping NEXT FRIDAY, AND I COULDN'T HAVE SACRIFICED THE SMOOTHIE!?!?!?
Needless to say, i am extremely mad at myself. I now have only $13.60 to spend on jeans, leggings, hoodies, t-shirts, scarf, hat, gloves, and anything else i decide to buy on impulse.
Of course, this isn't my LAST CHANCE to buy these things...no, but i am still mad.
WHY couldn't i have just gotten an ice cream cone? There was more ice cream than smoothie, it was cheaper, i wouldn't have had to pay for it anyway, and FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE IT WAS A MCDONALDS SMOOTHIE WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!?!?!?!?
So, trying to be humble, i thanked God for a good lesson in spending money:
Don't buy it if mom is buying something for everything else unless it is really cheap.
I still liked the smoothie. Strawberry banana. I've been dying to try them...but...
The smoothies i make at home are better. *is crabby*
I love that lip gloss. Its really nice. But did i REALLY need it? Was it worth the $5 i could have spent on shirts, socks, ANYTHING else???
Not really. And other lip gloss there was cheaper.
TO MY DEFENSE: I had thought the lip gloss was only $2.50, and that, plus the $2.50 for the smoothie, would have been five total.
But no. I ended up spending around $7.
And for me, broke, miserable me....thats a lot.
All in all, i was a moron.
