The itch to shop

I know everyone goes through it but I have a serious case of wanting to shop!! For our house, for myself, for my office (hence the computer)! Argh.... it is frustrating.

On the weekend we were at a relative's wedding and she had a lovely house. Granted she had lived only 3 years ago in a trailer before moving to the island, buying a lot, building a gorgeous house and turning it into a bed and breakfast. But ehhaaahhgghhhh.... I loved her kitchen and now I have the urge to buy: bar stools for our bar, a new hutch for the glassware, not to mention new sheets and towels, and she had the prettiest Denby plate set. Silly I know!

And I also am wishing for some new fall clothes- new pants, new shoes, new sweaters. Probably time to hit the second hand shops and satisfy my clothes urge at a fraction of the price.

All this too when I am waiting for my invoices to be paid. Three are almost 2 months overdue, so I am considering adding a polite clause at the end of new invoices reminding my clients that invoices more than 2 months overdue may be charged 6% interest. A girl's gotta eat after all... oh and resist shopping so she can pay off her damn debts :))

    You're stronger than me, because I've already bought some new fall clothes ... at regular price!!! Not very frugal of me. I should hit some second hand shops too.

    Definitely add that clause to the bottom of your invoices. That's just bad business practice for them not to be paying you!

    I would add that clause, 2 months is long enough.

    Be strong re the shopping!
