Money and Me (Updated twice)

March, i spent A$13.20 on mobile phone calls from our fixed line house phone. Damn upset.

April, i made a total of ZERO mobile phone calls fr our fixed line house phone. There's nothing to be proud of because i knew i was capable of it, as cocky as that sounds.

Call me anal, whatever. I am... what i call a Bargain Bitch.

Saw this skirt i loved at Target, Bayside. $29.00 in March. Not even 20% off. Sadly put it back on its rack.

May, recalls the skirt, wonder how's it... went back to check if its still there. Ohhhh, 50%!!!! More than double the discount i asked for!

Yet, i hesitated...

What do u think? A$14.88 or Rm43. Go for it?

Ps. Love their fitting rooms. Spacious and good mirrors... not those sucky mirrors that stab your self-confidence. The people who designed Target's fitting rooms and its lightings are really smart, if u know what i mean.


Added 4.35pm... Stupid weather... just as i was planning to go out and buy the skirt... i see this.
Maybe its not meant to be...


Added: 8.10pm
. After that update... it didnt rain at all for 45mins. So i quickly got dressed expecting damaging winds and a thunderstorm. I wore a spaghetti strap under a 3 quater sleeve polo tee. Leggings under my jeans. $2 gloves. And the thickest warmest MNG bubble jacket i have.

By the time i reached town... was a little warm... went straight for my beloved skirt, purchased it. =) And then proceed to grocery shopping, i'm making pork chop with baked apples tomorro (promise u a post on food i cooked post one day, and i still owe you the kite flying day, formal dinner and giant chess).

What great exercise it is to carry 3litres of juice and 1kg of pork, tomatoes, lettuce and apples home. 20mins walk. My jacket was BLOODY hot! I was sweating like mad and cursing the weather when i got home. Changed to shorts and spaghetti strap and stood outside in the wind for 5minutes!

At least i got my skirt! =) Housemate says i should have gotten it a long time ago or kill myself! Haha. If u are reading this, hie H S !
