An. Imbalance. In Money Attitudes? Seeking the truth can be painful...
Finding it can be worse:[
Isn't that amazing? I can go into a grocery store for 4 items and come out with $100 worth in the basket, but I won't go buy a pair of jeans at Kohl's without having a 30% off coupon. I don't know why I think that way. Ha!
I get in similar situations when I go shopping hungry, I get any small thing that I'd like to eat and they pile up. You forget the previous item and move on to the next one and don't realize it until you have to put the items one by one on the check out.
The same way I wanted to buy that Heinz BBQ sauce that was 5.59 BGN and I didn't want to because I'm a cheapskate, but not a doubt when I had to buy that textbook for 40.
