"Use It Up, Wear It Out, Make It Do, or Do WITHOUT"
I'm not exactly the best at saving money and I don't even budget well (Ok, sometimes not at all). I spend money the second I get it. Ok, lets be honest I am a shopaholic! I shop when I'm sad, I shop when I'm mad, I shop when I'm happy, I shop before I go out, I shop ALL THE TIME! Its safe to say that this shopping business is the reason I'm living back at home with my parents! I have lists of all the things I want, I think that's normal though...right? By the time my paycheck is spent I already have a new list of the things I'll buy with my next check. It's not just the $300 pair of jeans, the $200 bathing suits, the $150 pair of shoes, and the $250 purses, it's also the many adventures I WANT to have. I want to travel the world! I want, I want, I want! Give me, Give me, Give me!
This is getting out of control. I don't remember always being like this. I spent a lot if not most of my money on other people. So what happened? I can think of a few things, that I won't mention.
Well, Its time to get a grip! I know dang well that I can't bring any of these things into the Celestial Kingdom (or any kingdom at that). I don't think Heavenly Father is really impressed with my darling $600 outfits. We've been warned not to get involved or be apart of worldly things, and I think that this is a perfect example of one of the many worldly things that sucks us in. I'm ready to be more humble and be more prayerful over the things which I spend my money on. Obviously there are the necessities but I will try harder to not go "all out". It is my goal for the rest of this year to be more thrifty, and not so high maintenance. I will humbly pray about how and where I should be spending my money. I will use it all up, wear it out, and make it do! I will be more selfless and less selfish!
I'm on my way to bigger and better things, even if I'm being thrifty! ......wish me luck!...haha....
