Stupidity Continues...

August 30th 2006 21:38
I received my tax refund on Tuesday. Knowing what danger I was in - having $5,000 cash in my account - I went on a spending spree. Paid all my bills online and even put money on bills that weren't due for another month or so in an attempt to empty my bank account. But the inevitable occurred and off I went to the club. I was out for 6 hours. And at the end of this time I'd spent $390. I didn't even see a win! Disgraceful. Now it's 2 days later and I've finally managed to empty my account. How sad it is to know that I can't be trusted to have cold cash in my hand. But there it is. The good thing is that this splurge is still stinging. Yesterday and the day before I didn't leave the house. And today I have to go into town. But I'm not going near the club as I haven't any money left which is a good thing. I'm going to try and continue with my "cold turkey" approach. As long as I have a project for myself around 3-5pm daily everything will be Ok. I've started cooking exotic recipes to fill in this time.

I have a problem with cash as well. If there's any in my bank account, or available on my credit card I spend it. But not on gambling, instead on eating out, electronics, other stuff for the house or "toys" until it's all gone. Then I start being sensible again, but only because I have nothing left to spend.
So maybe that's what we should do, get rid of our credit cards and never get another one. Not sure how I would handle 5 grand in my account however, that is a HUGE tax return. Spending as much as you could on bills was a great idea. Maybe open a savings account at another bank and cut up the card so you can only put money into it, but really I dunno that's a tough one!
