Before anyone gets the preconceived notion that a)I am rich and b)I have a lot of money to spend let me just say this. a) I work part time at Starbucks b) I'm in University full time c) My credit card bill is huge. Yes I constantly drool over bags that cost almost as much as my rent and recently indulged in some very bad for my credit J-Crew shopping. And I need to stop. I'll admit, I have a shopping problem. In 2007 alone I bought 3 purses in the $500 range, a new pair of glasses, and countless other crazy things that I really didn't need to buy. In 2008 I've raised my credit limit (yet again) and blown it on sweaters. As I typed up my summer budget yesterday I realised I was somewhat screwed. I'll have enough for my courses next year as always, but I wont have made much of a dent in my visa and I wont have nearly as much money as I was hoping for to take to London. Therefore I've decided to go on a clothing diet. No new clothing is allowed to come into my closet until Mid/Late June (because I'm going to London and I do need to buy some new things for it) It's going to be hard. Really hard. On my walk to the subway everyday there is a Joe Fresh, great for cheap cute things. I work/go to school in my favourite shopping area Bloor Street West. My Starbucks is in an Indigo. But I will prevail. I hope.
