Spending $$

I have to stop spending money!!!!
Gosh, I was just rummaging through my wallet to get rid of those receipts that I realised how much I've signed on my credit card this month! It's almost a whopping RM1700! Well, it might not be a lot for some people...but it's definitely quite an astonishing figure for me...cos apart from the card, I'm also kinda running out of cash in hand to last me til the end of this month! Damn! I hate myself for being such a spendrift! But I cant help it!!!

I was already telling myself that I shouldnt be spending that much money anymore cos I am planning to save some extra money to fulfill a desire that has been dwelling inside me for quite a while......that is to bring my parents for a holiday overseas...I really hope that this will come true in less than 2 yrs time! Well, can I do it???? tough mission to accomplish! But I shall make it happen anyhow!
And here I am spending like nobody's business! I really have to do something about fighting the urge/temptations/ or whtever shit that is prompting me to spend money!
I've even tried avoiding going out with friends/making plans to shopping malls just to avoid having more holes in my pocket but I cant seem to stop the urge altogether!

May, Xiu and I were just in One U on Sunday for a make-over session by Stila and I spent a total of RM260 for a freaking makeup/photography session and purchased some make-ups which I dont really need! And to add in salt to injury, I didnt really quite like the results of the pictures taken. Quite a huge regret! Damn!

Sometimes I would really feel the guilt of signing the card given as a supplementary by hubby. I know he meant well by giving me that card for emergency use and all....but I tend to misuse it every single month and end up having the worst guilt inside me and wishing that I didnt get too impulsive when making my purchases!

I think I'm a born with the shopaholic bug inside me! A disease which can never be cured and will continue to get worse instead! Hubby has been giving hints to me to cut down in the spending department and I'd make a vow every month that I'll cut down on my habit the following month but it never seem to happen.
Well, like every other month, I'm just gonna make the same vow now.......Spend less, save more!

I hope to accomplish this simple yet complicated mission next month and hopefully I shall have a higher increment in my savings account next month! *fingers crossed*

Note: No harsh comment needed tho. Save all your trouble. This is just an insight of my feelings right now!
