Tell Me How...

I managed to spend this much during August alone:

VONS/GROCERY STORE - $281.89
RANDOM BARS - $443.55
RANDOM RESTAURANTS - $548.96
STARBUCKS - $173.73

SHOES - $161.57
CLOTHES - $499.89
MAKE.UP - $187.39

GRAND TOTAL: I DON'T FREAKING WANT TO KNOW BECAUSE I WILL LITERALLY VOMIT IN MY MOUTH!

Brother made me look at my expenses and spending over the last 6 months. 
People -- I WAS APPALLED. 

What the crap?! 

This is what is going through my mind right now:

-Starbucks: Oh how I love you so...but I really think we need to take a break. Like really. You're making me look bad.
-Okay, I know I joke that I'm an alcoholic in the making...But uh...Maybe it's not such a joke anymore?
-How do I go grocery shopping and STILL. SPEND. THAT. MUCH. AT. RESTAURANTS?!
-I will NOT highlight the shoes category, because those were my new fall boots and I love them.
-But $500 on clothes?!
-I'm seriously about to faint right now.

Mish is going on a DIET. A financial diet, that is.
It's time I either find myself a Sugar Daddy or I make some changes.
Brother and I poked and prodded at these numbers to come up with something far more reasonable for me to live by.
I think it can be done.
I know it can be done.
This can be exciting.
....my confidence is faltering.



WISH. ME. LUCK.

xoxo

  1. 100% you need to do this!
    Kill the coffee and alcohol addiction and life will be a million times better beyond just the savings.

    Every 6 months I compare my budget versus my actual spending to see where I need to adjust.

    You can do it, I know you can!
