you know you're broke when...

Yesterday I mentioned that I am done Christmas shopping.
You know why I'm most excited about that? Because I do not have to be in anymore crowded stores with screaming children. 
I had the worst experience in Target the other day. Target, people. Who has a bad time at Target?! A person who goes to Target on a Tuesday when two families with screaming children are there at the same time. It was miserable. And more than once I contemplated throwing something at them. And I may have thrown some dirty looks their way. I sure showed them!

But being done with Christmas shopping also means I'm broke.
As a joke.
And the joke is that my once-a-month payday doesn't come for over a week.
And you know it's bad when:

1. I am banking on paying for my wine date with my girlfriends tonight with my semi-decent looks and a push up bra.

2. I've eaten PB&J sandwiches for lunch two days in a row.

3. In order to buy supplies to print the Christmas cards I made and the food I have to make for my work holiday party tomorrow, I plan to take Shawn to the store with me and "accidentally" forget my purse.

4. I used the coupon I got from completing a survey to get free, watered-down coffee at work.
 
5. I have withdrawal symptoms just thinking about going a week without eating Jimmy Johns or Chipotle.

But man oh man, the people on my Christmas list are getting some good shiz!
And now, I'm on Santa's "nice" list.
Boom.
Tis the season, my friends. Tis the season.

I'm right there with you! I was contemplating calling into work today so I wouldn't have to fill my gas tank until payday. BAHAHAHA. I wish I was kidding.

Katie said...

'I contemplated throwing something at them' hahahah LOVE it!!! Guilty of having the same thoughts.

Numbers 1 & 3 are very much doable!

That's why you go with my method of Christmas shopping....hold off as long as possible. I like to start my Christmas shopping probably beginning to middle of next week! :)

Erin said...

PB&J sammiches aren't that bad... between top ramen and PB&J's... you'll be happenin'!

I'm dying laughing over the I forgot my purse idea. Classic. I hate being broke. It causes me anxiety. And I always over do it at Christmas time!! How the f do u live off of getting paid once a month?! Poor thing! Santa better bring you so pretty aaaamazing gifts! You deserve it! Xoxo

Beth Lane said...

I know exactly how you are feeling and I haven't even gotten most of my Christmas shopping done! I had to devise a plan to get some gas in my car to get to work today!

Shelly@Shelly No Belly said...

I will be broke after tomorrow. I love buying other people good shiz....and then for some reason I shop for myself in the clearance section. I hope you get some wine tonight. Another method that is proven to work is: find a guy standing at the bar, stand next to him and order drink, when the bartender asks for your card just say "use his" and run really fast off... my bff did this all the time. The guy always ended up paying for her, ha!

Ashleigh said...

What?!?! Who has a bad time at Target?!? Ever?? Haha! Throwing something at them made me laugh, I've thought that before about other people's kids too. Thank goodness my kids aren't crazy!

Ya know, I have kids two littles, nearly 4 and nearly 2, they have their own little mini meltdowns, but when they get like that we leave, I have left an entire cart of groceries mid-aisle before... no shame.

I try to be more passionate this time of year now for people with kids and for my own kids as well. The only way I have gotten any Christmas shopping done as been to take my kids with me. FUN! Not all of us have people we trust to watch our kids to get everything done. :)

I eat PB&J sandwiches for lunch almost every day at work haha :)

smk053078 said...

I feel ya...this time of year...our bank account is well, let's just say...close to being ZERO!!! But....I am done with shopping too!!! Holla!!!

Janna Renee said...

Haha I bet your gift receivers are going to be super happy with their gifts ;) I control our finances, so Will is the one that asks me for money or "forgets his wallet" with the allowance in it.

Jess said...

I actually haven't had much money lately, and have had fun rewearing "old outfits". and accessoring them differently.

Amanda said...

I totally feel your pain......I thankfully have a work lunch today out so I didn't have to pack, I am also going through Chipotle withdrawls because Monday is usually my day to go!
