Just Bought, New Spending Freeze AND Giveaway Winner



  Thursday, August 26, 2010 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
I was going to do a September Issue post at the beginning of the week and kept putting it off and now everyone has done one, so I'll just skip it so you all aren't bored of the same thing ;)
A few days ago my first credit card came in the mail! Yes, I am 21 and just got my first credit card...I don't really need one but I figured I should get one to start building up my credit.  Below is what my card looks like, I got one of those Captial One image cards ;)  I made my first purchase with it today! (shame on me)  (and no, that's not the actual card, I made it in photoshop...but that is the image that's on it)
Now, onto some good and bad news.  Last night I found out that the plain black Miu Miu inspired Mary Janes were finally online at Forever 21, so of course, I had to get them!! I really hate paying shipping so I opted for paying $10 more than I would have if I paid shipping to get a few more items ;) Whenever I shop I go through pretty much everything and add whatever I like to my cart, then when I'm done I go back and weed out things I have changed my mind about or don't really need.  The only problem is that sometimes, like this time, I end up with some things I really don't want to take out of my cart.  I was only planning on spending $40, but ended up spending $48.90 (GRR) :/  Normally I wouldn't have spent all that money...but whatever.
BUT apparently if you purchase over $25 in stuff you get a free magazine subscription, but if you don't want that you can email a form and get a $10 rebate, so I'm doing that! Hopefully it works.
Now hopefully it all fits, if the shoes don't fit I'm going to sell them on here or eBay so someone in another country can have a chance. But I really hope I don't have to do that since I want them all to myself ;)

I have decided to take cues from Lydia and my past spending freeze and starting on September 1st I'm going to try to stop spending money again (except gas). I doubt I'll be able to do it though...maybe I should set a monthly limit or something instead?  Well I have 6 days to decide the terms of my freeze.

Finally, the winner of the Destination Diva Bracelet Giveaway is....MARIE from Marie a la Mode!!! I will be emailing your information to Adrienne and she will contact you about where to ship your bracelet!

And so ends this ridiculously long post!

  12. I was just browsing F21--there's tons of stuff that I will def. get for my bday ( If im turning 30, is it still ok to shop at f21?) oh well I am!

    and I think you should just give yourself a limit each month-- spending freezes are hard!

  20. Those shoes are awesome, I might have to stop over at the F21 website and get myself some. You'll have to let me know if they're comfy. And as for the spending freeze, I guess it's a good goal, but it just doesn't seem practical. I think you should make a budget and stick to it. Everything in moderation baby!

  27. I love the skirt! Good luck with your credit card, it can be a vicious, vicious thing. Very handy for online purchases though!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yay, I ordered those shoes the other day too! And did the same thing with the buying-more-so-I-can-get-free-shipping, lol! I love the extras you got though, especially that adorable skirt! And your credit card is too cute, mine is just plain blue, so boring! :)

  29. You're hilarious! I can't even imagine getting that much stuff for so little, except maybe in Britain at Primark! Hope everything fits, and just to let you know, my depression-era grandmother and my depression-scarred mother would be so proud of you emailling in for the $10 rebate!

  30. I too hate paying for shipping and 99.9% of the time, if I have to buy something else to get free shipping, I will -- because then I feel like I am saving money, or rather getting something tangible for it. haha.

    I think that skirt is adorable, and I'll keep my fingers crossed the shoes fit! (one thing I do LOATHE about F21 is their return policy).

    Good luck with your spending freeze, or diet -- I think what you decide has to be based on your own habits -- if you have a budget, will you be able to stick to it, or will you find yourself in another situation when you can't stand to take anything out of your cart and will just let it slide....
    or if you have a full ban, will the end of the ban just cause you to binge?

    I'm sure you will figure it out!

  31. I just forced my best friend to buy those shoes today! I am moving to live on a beach in Mexico, so I can't see myself wearing them too much. It made me feel better to see her buy them. Great buy! Hope they fit!

    Thanks for stopping buy my blog!

  32. I hope the shoes fit! They will be the best twenty five dollars you've ever spent if they do (I purchased a pair and I wear them all the time, they fit true to size so if you aren't an odd half size they will definitely work out!).
