"Shopping: The fine art of acquiring things you don't need with money you don't have."

by Jaime on June 19, 2009

Ahh, isn’t that the life.

So, pretty much at this point in time, I’m going to be saving my money. Don’t really have much of a choice, now do I? But, how to go about this?

C. and I lead a pretty extravagant lifestyle, especially for the amount of money we both don’t make. We go out a lot (hell, yesterday we went to Qdoba, just because I was craving it.), and I tend to spend money on… well, on denim. I know it’s bad, but that’s why they call it an addiction, right?

Well, some things need to change. First and foremost, I need to change my spending habits. And sometimes the best way to do that is to change your outlook on shopping.

I HATE cutting coupons. Like, royally hate it. They suck, there’s no way around it. But Minnow of Minnow’s Pond, who is actually someone I consider to be amazing in her own right, is getting me to shift gears. For starters, she hooked me by finding me a coupon for free Sopapillas at On the Border (which is pretty much God’s gift to my tummy, and curse to my waistline)… and it went from there.

I check her blog everyday, because she’s always got something new and interesting, whether it’s a new sample of skincare items or a food item I should try.

Plus… the girl’s got a great sense of style, and loves J Brand just as much (okay, maybe not just as much, but close!) as I do… and I’d say that even if she didn’t have a kickass blog.
