Money Money Money

Since having a job and actually earning a wage my brain has gone: fantastic now we can buy things! But I am having to learn that the same money is not the same when spent on different things; which is difficult because when you have no money, you can’t buy anything so it’s easy – you just don’t buy things. But now I have to work out which things it’s ok to buy and which things is not.

For example: take £35. Surely it’s the same £35 regardless of what I spend it on. WRONG! £35 on food a week is acceptable, but £35 on shoes each week isn’t. Why is that?! It’s not fair, I would much rather have shoes than food. However if I dint buy food I would die. Why is keeping myself alive so expensive?!  I feel I have done my time being poor and now I am due some things I want (mainly shoes) without having to budget to high heaven to save money for them.

Learning the right things to buy is taking some time, and sometimes I get it wrong but it’s so easy to become desensitized to spending large sums of money when large bills come in each month just to keep a roof over my head and food in my tummy. Hopefully I will learn soon…. Otherwise I will die of starvation and they will find my body with a large collection of fabulous footwear!
