Devika.....Hello! Haven't talked with you in a while.....glad to see you are well & as active as ever on HP.
Well, what woman does not love to shop? THIS woman. LOL Obviously I shop when I have to because I am looking for something in particular, but I don't see "shopping" as recreation or entertainment, as so many women do. In other words, I refrain from temptation. I know better than to give myself a hundred reasons to buy a hundred things I do not need, never knew I wanted, or JUST COULDN'T RESIST! LOL
Self-control, Devika! I'm an expert (when it involves spending) However, I have never in my life resisted a piece of chocolate cream pie!
Frankly, I have to say that my sister and I had such a (subtle and/or subliminal) type of brainwashing in terms of "finances-budgets-money management"....it is literally ingrained into our brains! I truly feel on "auto-pilot" nearly robotic when it comes to constantly hovering over my financial affairs. Our mother (Bless her) did an incredible number on us in this area of Household responsibilities.
I will forever be grateful for this. As it turned out, I have forever been "on-a-budget!"
Great Question, Devika. Have a happy week-end!
