Since I haven't blogged decently for quite a while, I've decided to rant on my so-called "retail therapy. When I was still earning top peso (lol), I have a hard time controlling the urge to buy whenever I see stuff I like...even if it's not on sale. Ganun. I stopped being kuripot for a while because I know the things I'm buying are what I really needed. Plus I became galante to my little brother, Christopher. I get excited when I buy my brother new clothes because I get to style him so he won't look generic and that I realize that he's growing up so fast. Likewise with Charmaine, but not as same as Christopher because she's in Manila. I treat her out to lunch, dinner or snacks or sometimes buy her shirts when I go there.
Now that my duty hours have been decreased, so did the income. I now have to revert to dead-on frugality. But what's annoying is that all the good stuff came out NOW and that I can't curb the urge to buy.
Like the last time I bought something from Body Shop three days ago. I was trying to practice self-control but I couldn't so I ended up buying. The deal was too good because the blush on was on sale at 50% off. Hehe. I was kinda whiny while I was thinking and I wanted to kick myself for being L-A-M-E. But luckily, shoes and bags aren't on sale. Plus I was annoyed by how expensive Gap is here in Manila so I lost interest in buying clothes.
So now I vow to save more moolah for the remaining days that I am employed. Because after my resignation, I'm back to being a bum again. An official parasite. Taghirap na ako. Bleh.
