Weekly Spending/Fitness Recap 5/9-5/15/2011

This week was super spendy because I went out to dinner with friends on Friday night and I hung out with friends I haven't seen in years on Sunday. It was worth it though and I was able to avoid going "out". Instead of going clubbing we went to a late brunch, shopping downtown, and went to a bar. It was totally worth it because although I spent $91 yesterday I got a MAC blush and shoes on sale from UO instead of just buying alcohol and paying cover at a club :). It was SO nice to see friends from my sorority who I haven't seen in ages! I do not mind spending money and time with people I love. I also returned a lot of stuff recently and they all showed up on my credit card this week so I'm counting that as this week's reimbursements.

On another note, I sold my near and dear Balenciaga 2009 RH City in black. Honestly the leather isn't what I really wanted but it is my HG (holy grail) bag. I will buy another one someday but I need the money for my down payment. I still have 2 other designer bags and I haven't really used it lately so off it goes. I'm not a hoarder, I actually feel better getting rid of my stuff especially if I get money out of it. The great part is that a gal from SD bought it, so we are meeting up (at a public place, BF is taking me) and I get cash, and I don't have to spend on shipping or paypal fees!

My goals this week are to take pilates class (I used to do pilates 3x a week and it did wonders for me), save as much as I can for my LSAT class, and put in as much as I can into my down payment fund. What are yours?

Nice going. I would totally prefer spending my money shopping and eating with friends than clubbing. I find it funny how you can return so many things without a second thought. Nothing wrong with it, just makes me laugh. Good going with everything.

Good job this week!
I'd like to get back into a regular pilates regimen, too.
Selling your bag was a good decision--no point is hanging onto something pricey when you're not 100% in love with it.

I used to be so irresponsible when clubbing with friends. I'd charge $75 each weekend on fancy drinks. Dumb. However, I have some good memories :)

Rafiki - I have a returning habit/problem haha. I like to buy items online but when I get them, they don't live up to my expectations. I'm a much better in-store buyer.

Raw- I was the same! I never looked at my credit card until a month after the damage had been done, but now with conscious spending with friends it makes it easier :)

I'm glad you had fun going out shopping and catching up over a meal rather then stand around in a club spending a fortune over drinks and you can't even have an intimate conversation.

I'm totally in awe of you selling your Balenciaga! And your HG bag no less!! I have yet to sell any of my bags yet and I don't have the heart to...

I find your dedication really inspiring :)
