Mo Money Mo problems?
Mo: Are you a spender or a saver? Do you believe "easy come-easy go"? Would you buy things repeatedly out of your budget? Or do you get a panic attack even at the thought of not having enough to make ends meet?
I have to admit that having no money is one of my greatest fears. And yet, I know I can spend money like no-one´s business. Always on the right side of red though.
What are my weaknesses?
If you are a regular to this blog you will know: Travelling. Shoes. Dresses. Facials. More travelling. More shoes. One or two handbags... think you get the picture...
More than once have I felt like Carrie in the beloved SATC...
The episode where Carrie goes to the bank to ask for a loan and the bank woman concludes that she holds a total of 1 dollar and 50 cents in her bank account and SJP in frustration realizes that if Manolo Blahniks were house buying currency - she would be a millionaire - well, even if I don´t collect Manolos and my bank balance has never looked THAT bad, I can still wonder sometimes what kind of apartment my shoes would translate to...?
However, I would never take out a loan to buy something that I couldn´t afford with what I have in my purse or in the bank, (if it wasn´t for a house). And very rarely do I overspend like I did when I was in my mid 20s. Sadly(???) enough I believe that at the end of the day, money gravitates towards those who have the courage to spend it, as long as its not taken to its extreme. (Think bailiff officer)
If that is true, I have a LOT of money coming my way very soon. Which is great, because at the moment there is just a little bit more than a few potholes to be filled...
(...and I´ll look damn FABULOUS while I´m waiting for it to happen!...)
