I had a crazy spending week. All the transactions seemed so small, but they all added up so quickly :( I really needed a haircut on Friday, which I had been postponing for a few months now. The last day to order wedding pics from my BFF's wedding was on Friday so I procrastinated and tried to buy them that night with my mom's Amex but they didn't accept Amex, so I had to use my money. Funny story with the big eyeliner purchase - I have been using the Maybelline Line Works liquid liner in brown since 7th grade (9 years now) and I found out it's been discontinued so I bought 6 of them online for $35. They will probably last me for awhile.

I feel bad for spending so much this week but I'm transferring $1300 to savings this week as well as $300 to my roth IRA. The boots did me in this week but I'm glad I didn't end up putting anything on the credit card. It's nice to know I can pay for all my needs and wants on cash right now. Today I had a great time hanging out with the BF and his family. We went to go eat at a huge buffet and had crab legs, shrimp, etc and my BF paid for everyone. That's what I love about my BF... we don't have the need to split things 50/50 or count every penny. I pay for our meals sometimes and sometimes he covers it all. We already decided we will have a joint account when we get married in the future (that's another blog post in itself). He also bought me these cute/warm slippers and new pants this weekend! :)

No credit spending is a big deal! Even though my wallet is empty and my account is low, I feel good knowing that I went the whole week without touching my credit card. :) Better to be broke than in debt.
