Indulgence Fail

I’m definitely a cheapskate when it comes to buying anything for myself. When I go out to eat, I always order a water with my meal. So if I want a soda then I’ll make myself wait until I get home bc the generic 12-pack soda for $2.50 is much cheaper than the restaurant and I won’t over-drink with all the free refills (less calories too!)

Lol that’s just the first example that came to mind, I’m sure I’ll share more as I continue blogging.

So, definitely there are some places that are complete no-no’s for me. Starbucks is one of them. Overall, I just feel that they are over-priced and too sweet and unnecessary calories for me. No offense to Starbucks fans out there, of course. Love y’all! ๐Ÿ˜€

Well… someone had given me a $25 Starbucks gift card and I decided to use it on myself instead of giving it to someone else. And… that was the beginning of the end for me.

I tried their small iced caramel macchiato for $4.66. And it was amazing.

So I went back the next day for another.

And I went back the next day.

And I went back the next day.

And I went back the next day.

And I went back the next day but my gift card was short and I had to pay the remainder with cash. And I told myself, this is a sad day bc this is my last one. And I threw away the empty gift card to rid myself of the memory.

But you guys… I went back the next day!!!!! And every day since then too. It’s been a whole week now and this is definitely not like me.

I have to figure out how to break this cycle. I’m certainly a creature of habit too and this has fallen into my daily routine now and I’d rather it not be. It’ll cost me about $150 a month if I don’t break from it and I need to allocate that much money elsewhere.

Wish me luck!
