Spendthrift

For a long time I was a pay-as-you-go person. I had one or two credit cards but didn't use them much. Lately, though, I have had to use them for a number of reasons. And this week I went over the line and used them for things I didn't absolutely have to. Yesterday I bought a new digital camcorder and accessories, one I've been wanting for a long time, and today I paid for a new pair of glasses. The glasses - my present pair is scratched and it is difficult to wear them these days - so I can almost justify that. I could, however, have gone somewhere to get cheaper glasses. But I didn't want to spend my days doing that. Just wanted it done.

On the other hand, I just got a $15 haircut, cheap, cheap. And it's a cheap haircut. I have no doubt of that. Because I had my eyes examined today and my pupils are still enlarged, I am not sure what I got...either in the haircut or the glasses.  No matter. Neither one is a life or death matter. I'm glad I went ahead with these things even though it's costing me. Sometimes I just can't spend any more time on getting the best possible deal.

.. your hair will grow back out and give you a second chance, the fed still only prints enough money to buy the goods .. as opposed to printing enough to cover what the debt will cost you .. that will take another loan .. don't stray too far from cash and carry, it is very difficult to return

Believe me I know. I have been there. That's why I am paying attention to it.
