When do you spend money?

Postby YesFan01 » Wed Apr 30, 2008 12:47 pm

How do you spend your money? Not your bills etc. but your "spend"....do you buy when you're depressed? When you're happy? Or when you feel you deserve something? I'm generally not a big spender, I like to get some new clothes each season, but I bargain hunt, I hate to spend a lot of money when I can find it cheaper somewhere else! I spend on flowers in the summer too.....can't have enough! Love to see them everywhere and I love to water them in the morning. How about anybody else?

I have a stupidly large mortgage and a young family so spending money on non-essential items is something of a rarity.

That said, I do like to buy CDs, books and DVDs when I can justify it and have recently bought a few Gong albums, some Porcupine Tree stuff and The Short Stories of Saki (HH Munro).

I tend to fall into the "I need to cheer myself up so I'll buy something" category.

Other major purchases are for the house: new fence to keep young children safe from the stream that runs along the back of our home; washing machine, after ours died. That kind of thing.

I occasionally get envious of people jetting off to the Bahamas or other sunny climes and think that maybe we'll get a week away on a campsite in Dorset, but in the main we're happy. And that's priceless.

Pretty much the same Deal Cd's Books DVD's
clothes a couple of times a year
Presents on birthdays
I don't Spend out of guilt or depression or anything
if something new comes out that I'm really into I get it
I have tended to order things online more and more
hardware and things I need for the house I get at Home Depot or Walmart pretty much
being that I work with tools
thats Probably my biggest expense
I'm not much of a bargain hunter I try to get the best of things when I do get them
I spose not buying things often makes me a conservative spender

I probably tend to spend more when I'm happy and excited . . . :D

When I'm depressed, nothing seems like the right thing, and I hate to shop.

Major purchases for me monthly are : Junk food at local mini-mart, like Cheetos and Cornuts, Pepsi or Coke, Snapple ice tea, Fritos.
Then, of course, about 2 cartons of cigs per month.

Then gas, maybe $45 a month. Don't drive much.

Food: I cook a lot of beans and peas. Huumus is sort of expensive. Tortillas, pasta , rice, milk, grapenuts, bread.


All the movies I want to see I can download legally from numerous sites because they are public domain or trashy sleazy films or I get bootleg concert films or download stuff from Youtube , burn it to DVD. I have my entertainment bases completely covered. I know a lot of sites where I can download rare old rock and progressive for free. All second hand store type LP's uploaded from collectors.

I go to my library booksale. Lots of donations, so I get cheap VHS tapes of really cool collectors films, expensive foreign language books, etc. for very low price. Like $1 for VHS...

I don't buy clothes often. I rarely go to bars.

I spend like $4 a week at Starbucks..

I buy Zantac a lot.

Sometimes I buy a cheap bottle of vodka or some Bud Lite...

Library rents DVDs for$1 a week.

I'm totally a compulsive buyer & shopaholic... I won't buy anything for a couple months and then all of a sudden I'll see a bunch of things I want and go crazy. Usually it's to make me feel better or reward myself. I usually buy online nowadays, random stores or Ebay... & I usually go for cheap or Sale items, tho- they're always best! And then I don't feel so bad about buying em, haha. Usually I buy clothes, purses, and the like. Sometimes YESstuff. Like I just went nuts like.. this semester. Bought a new jacket last month, a sweater before that, and two purses. All from Ebay. :D But now I'll probably go on a dry spell till July or something. (I hope! Cuz then I get home to my fellow shopaholic little sister and it's hard to resist, hahaha...)

I stopped wasting money on purses a year ago.

Today I sort of wasted $3.50 on a caffe latte at SB's. Real expe. if you do it several times a week.

Even buying vegetables, which used to be a good value is skyrocketed. Green bell peppers for $1.69 each? Rip. Tomatoes are like $5 a pound. Beans remain cheap at like 69cents. Lunch meat, you can get deals, but better to buy a whole chicken. Celery for over a $1? Avocados for $2? Block of crappy generic cheddar for $5?

Reall good thing is that entertainment is cheaper! All the stuff I want I can get off Internet, which means older rare stuff that no one bothers copyright on anymore...I can make a complete video also off youtube downloads...

Beer is cheaper now than 5 years ago. Everyone is carb conscious now. You can get a case for like $10 at Rite Aid, then you have to buy new jeans because your waist size climbs to 38.

Cigs are cheaper. $32 a carton. Used to be almost $40..
Clothes, who needs clothes. Wear sandals, shop at Mervyns.
Haircuts? $20. Better just let hair grow.
Razors? Just let beard grow.
Soap- good deal on Irish Spring 6pack bar soap.

Bars: my friend waits until 11 PM. No need to buy drinks for chixxx that are already buzzed.

I'm not a big spender, most of the cash goes to pay bills, buy the usual groceries, gasoline, necessities. I like to go to flea mkts./garage sales etc. so I don't usually spend a lot for those type of things.

What I do spend on is my daughter, I am a complete sucker when it comes to her and will spend more money on her then I really should.

Booze, sort of a waste of money to spend on. I am glad I do not have a pet or kid to feed now.

I have too much music to justify buying more. Lots of dusty CDs sitting around. I like obscure stuff, so I can go on internet and get it.

Junk food is pretty much a waste. Tootpaste is a good deal. Floss , soap,...

Travel: gotta always save for a trip to Europe every 2 years. Otherwise life gets dull.

A good way to save money is to shop for food at an American drug store like Rite Aid or Long's. They often have deals. I got a ton of canned food and tea for $11.
