I confess to breaking my spending ban today. Tried on this skirt "for fun" at the thrift shop and sternly reminded myself no more spending. So the skirt went back on the rack.
I went home but rushed back 30 mins later to buy it. The skirt was stuck in my head. It was like a compulsive disorder!
By then the shop had closed for the day. I knocked on the door because I could see staff inside. Then shamelessly through the glass, I pleaded for them to let me buy the skirt.
It would have been fine if they told me to come back tomorrow. I appreciate that they're volunteers and it was past closing time. The saleslady took pity on me and opened the door. I grabbed the skirt, gave her £6 and quickly left the store.
My spending ban is not working!!! I really hope I get a job soon.
