What the hell am I thinking about, over the last couple of days I have been spending like a mad Woman, coffees out, lunches out, a new book, extra groceries and then this morning I found myself standing in front of a $300.00 saucepan trying to justify buying it for myslf. Do I need it? NO, do I want it? not now that I am home and typing out this tale but for the 10 minutes that I stood in that store, YES YES YES I wanted it.
What was that all about ? Am I feeling deprived because I,m budgeting, if the answer is yes, then so far I,ve learned nothing. If it is because I now have the money in the bank to buy it without going into debt for it, then why am I getting my finances in order, is it simply so I can buy expensive things for myself as and when I see them ? This is not the reason for trying to get my self organised it was supposed to be getting secure as I head towards my retirement. Which is getting nearer and nearer. So obviously I,m not in the mindset yet and I,m not sure of how to get there.
