Daisy Bateman

Freeze, Sucker

Recently, it seems like various drains on my finances have been kind of a theme around here. There’s the car, of course, which has already racked up some impressive debits just for the rental, and it’s only going to get more exciting when it comes time to pay for the replacement engine. And then there’s the fact that I have to move at the end of this month, destination unknown, but definitely more expensive. Which, if you combine them with the fact that the way things are going for my employer, raises are probably not going to be a big priority any time soon, gives you some annoyingly strained finances. Which is why, in a bold approach almost certainly doomed to failure, I have decided to institute a buying freeze through the end of the year.

That’s right, Daisy isn’t going to be purchasing anything (barring gifts) for the next three months. No clothes, no accessories, no books, no purses. No (gulp) shoes. Not even if they’re on a really good sale.

Of course, as soon as I decided this, I realized that what I really need is a denim pencil skirt. And a watch. And some boots.

It’s gonna be a long three months.
