When I go into my manic-depressive episodes I go on a compulsive spending rampage. The only time I realize it is when I look online at my bank statement. Today, I looked at it. I couldn’t believe I much I have spent since the first of the mont!. My plan after I bought the car is to watch my money!
I only get so much a month on social security disability, and after buying a car my funds are a little limited right now. This crunched me. I really do forget to watch my money. I forget how much I spend that day and even the day before. I just ignore it assuming everything is okay. I just hate dealing with it. If I don’t watch my spending I’ll be in jeopardy.
I tend to go to the grocery store too much. and I eat out a lot. My problem is I forget how much money I have and I forget how much I’m spending.
If I can’t just make myself be more aware on my pending.
