Have you ever had a spending problem?

One time I spend my 3000 thousand Pesos or equivalent of almost 80 Dollar in one day by eating different kind of foods. I was depressed that time because of a personal problem. It never happened again. I learned my lesson not to use too much money when you are down. How about you?

I can't find a time I spent like that for no good reason. I am very frugal for the most part and want to see where my money goes. Now when it comes to home decor count me in. I will pay for that any day of the week.

@airkulet That day is coming really soon too. I am almost done with my room. The living room I will not touch for over a year till I cash out here. I am not cashing out with less then a grand.

@sharon6345 My mother loves decor. She is really also frugal other things aside from decorations.

I can confess I have a bit of a spending problem currently. For a man it's one of the more shallow spending issues one can have I suppose - I love watches. Now Ive joked amongst my friends and family that I'm the "connoisseur of low end watches" and thats the painful truth. Nothing I buy runs more than $150 or so, but I have 7 watches. I've tried to justify it 6 ways of Sunday, but its like handbags or shoes - it's an accessory. I kinda feel dirty for spending so much money on it.

I had spent a lot thing month. I spent around 500 dollars paying taxes and food stuff. I think by the end of the month the expenses are going to be even more. So surely it is not something I'd be going to ignore. i have to pay attention to bunch of other things and not to lose the sight of stuff these days. I have to also budget few things along the way. Hopefully things work out with this ever changing spending.

Maybe your spending weakness is on food. I spend most on eyeglasses and I don't regret buying them. I only have 5 or 6 pairs at a time. I usually give those that won't fit on me anymore to my relatives and friends.

well I think my problem in spending is by doing grocery, every time I go to a grocery store and just needed one I will end up putting everything in my basket or kart. It's just like spontaneous especially if I am using card instead of cash

Depression can make me feel the same. I would eat a lot, make me feel good for a while then when reality bites - ouch! There I go again - being depressed and overeat once more. It's a really vicious cycle - Seriously! Another habit I have before was overspending on material things when depressed. Believe me, that brought me a lot of financial problems but I was able to control it now. Unfortunately, overeating while depressed still is a burden to me. I was told that the only way to handle this is to face your problem - head on! If the problem is too big to handle then say this to your problem: ''Beware problem because I have a bigger GOD!" This helps me at times when depression becomes unbearable!
