Someone gave me cash as a gift for Christmas with strict instructions…
DON’T SPEND IT ON DEBT.
Hmm. I guess I’m a smidge predictable.
I went to the mall to pick out a new pair of tan work slacks. Mine are currently being held together by a hair tie and a safety pin. No, I’m not joking and yes, my shirt always covers it. Geez, I’m not THAT unprofessional.
I went to Fashion Valley mall here in San Diego. It’s a distance from my house but I made the trek because the place is huge and it has a good mix of cheap and expensive stores. That way, when I started to feel silly about shopping at Forever 21 at 30 years old, I could escape to H & M. Then, after discovering that both those stores make clothing that only lasts one wash cycle, hence the safety pin/hair tie situation, I’d end up at Nordstrom.
I had blow money burning a hole in my wallet. Money with no specific need. Money to spend on whatever I wanted…
And all I found was a $9 clearance sweater…
Long enough to cover the safety pin and hair tie.
At this rate, I’ll have the money spent by 2014.
