whoa. wait, what?!?!
i know that's what most of you are saying. it's not that i hate shopping, it's that i just don't like spending money. (yup, i'm a cheapster.)
now, this post might not knock your socks off or be news that is new...but it will help your shopping budget, particularly online. trust me, your wallet will thank me.
so, like i said, i don't like spending money. part of it is that i've been frivolous with money in my past (hello credit card debt!), and the other part is that i've learned a lot of financial lessons that include cutting off all unnecessary spending. for months i cut back. no buying coffee at dunkin donuts. (my waistline probably thanked me more than my wallet.) no buying expensive items at the grocery store. (temporarily cutting off nice cuts of steak and name brand extras.) no shopping for clothes. or shoes. or purses. no more online shopping sprees.
but, since my 'cut back' was lifted (slightly), i've found myself being excrutiatingly careful with the dollars i do spend. and i do spend money on stuff. old navy? i love their bargans and casual, comfy clothes. jo-ann? i love crafting! food? yup, i still eat! =)
so, how do i try to save as many pennies as i can? here's the *big* secret:
so, while i don't like shopping, i do like saving. and retail me not is a great way to $ave! =)
this post was in no way sponsored by retail me not. i just like their website, find the savings to be fabulous, and wanted to share the knowledge with my awesome readers.
