Default Spending diary.. you spent how much?

Just berating myself for being sucked into grabbing a 30% off 'deal' in Farmers and nearly fainting afterwards when I stopped to think about what I had just paid for an absolutely nothing special at all swimsuit.

This is what I spent today:

Swimming costume two piece separates: tankini top and pants $76.99 (would have been $109.98 had I been mental enough to pay full price).

Lemon delicious slice from the cafe that will probably prevent me from wearing the above $4.00

Half price serving dish from Stevens $9.99

I was in there last night too, buying birthday presents for upcoming parties, it was manic! I refused to go upstairs though (at Albany) or I would have had a few 'impulsive' purchases....

Should have gone to the Warehouse - with what you saved, you could have bought a Sarong to cover it up so no-one could see it!

Went to Harvey Norman's 3 hour sale last night. Got a 33 inch t.v. for $498 (about £250) reduced from $749 (about £375). Had to buy the one from the shop floor as it was the last one. It's now the main t.v. the old t.v. 26 inch screen fell over in the Christchurch earthquake in June and I'm just waiting for it to stop working out any minute. Although the new t.v. does not have a c.d. function, the old one does.

Being in Blenheim, we get sweet FA in regards to decent shopping. So we have taken to shopping online.

I get T shirts from www.Threadless.com, all for about $5-$15 USD with free shipping (when on promotion). Heaps of kids T-shirts, all unique designs.

Default Re: Spending diary.. you spent how much?

anyway other than food stuff I bought some "body parts" that were left over from halloween in the warehouse for $2 down from the knuckle crunching and eye spitting price of $10. Kid's will love em as stocking fillers......unwrapped or wrapped

I also bought a filleting knife for $8 down from $20.

Then I bagged me 7 snapper off the jetty but there were no legal ones (just) so they all went straight back in to fatten up. So the knife is still unblooded.
