Succumbing to Buyer's Remorse



Frustrated Sosyalera wants to buy new threads but can't because she's still in debt after purchasing her new netbook which, by the way, she hasn't used for 2 days in a row now.

Ladies & gentlement, this is what you call Buyer's Remorse.


I had weeks to deliberate whether to continue buying it or to just forget about it, but you know which argument won. I couldn't pay for it in cash, because I didn't have enough, so I had the whole damn cost swiped into my abused Master Card.

Regret it, I did. I could've just waited until I had enough cash, but looks like I couldn't wait any longer.

The result is a much lighter wallet, eventhough it's a big one.

But rather than sell it on, I've decided to earn back the money I will be spending on huge credit card bills by way of paid posts.

Yes, Frustrated Sosyalera is now a sell-out. But I guess I've always been anyway because I've nearly sold my soul to the devil to get that darn Gucci bag and look where it got me.

Oh well, I better get crackin'. Leave me a note here, will yah? It'll alleviate my depression if only for a little bit.

I told myself that we really needed a laptop (and we do!) when our old one broke down. Then I proceeded to try to earn from the net. I guess "nabawi ko na" although it took quite a while coz my laptops more than 2 years old already. We have no plans of buying a new one though :)

Im sure makakayanan mo naman bayaran yan in a short period of time. That's the price you have to pay for being impulsive, but sometimes sabi bila it's better to buy what you want than just buying the things that you need, kz when you get what you want as a price for yourself, you get even more motivated to do better and to find ways to earn more.

kaya if you've noticed some people na wala ng direksyon sa buhay, they start having mortgage or loans, para kahit papano may reason to keep moving fwd..

Just think of them as your motivation tokens, magagamit mo rin naman to be able to make money and syempre paglagayn ng money mo. :P

geewhiz, thanks for making me feel good about this! XD

it makes a lot of sense, too. i used to just spend all my money every payday, but now that i've got investments waiting to be paid monthly i'm not as reckless as I used to be and I know exactly where my money is going. ^_^
