Living through other Bloggers :)

February 22nd, 2009 at 01:59 am

So in order to curb my spending habits I've started living vicariously through other blogs not associated with the SA crew. Smile These beauty and style blogs help me stay abreast with all the fashion happenings, so I don't have an excuse to go to the stores and spend money. I've also learned a few things that have helped me be frugal. For example I traded in my $65.00 body scrub for a much cheaper organic home made version. Yes people in my foolish and naive days I did spend $65 on a body scrub!

On to money matters.... I paid some bills over the weekend and did my taxes online. I put $500.00 towards my Capital One and hopefully I will put my tax return money towards paying off that card. I want to get someone else (a pro) to take another look at my taxes. I'm not getting back much Frown. Maybe I can look at my credit card purchases over the year to determine what was purchased because of work.

    hmmm yes, i used to pay about $45 for a small tube of moisturiser. then i found vitamin e cream, which is about $4 for the same amount - and much better for my skin!

    I've been reading a lot of style blogs lately too, although not because I need to curb my spending Stick Out Tongue
    Like your colors. The moment I open this page, it makes me feel like I'm at the beach. Nice and cool, despite the freezing cold weather outside.

    Haha, I do that all the time. Window shopping online. Well, sort of. For example, sometimes, I will peruse through uncrate.com or luxist.com for the fun of it.
