My stomach has been in knots for the last few days with anticipation and worry about getting this new job. I find myself being very careless with money. I'm not really watching what I spend and am very good at justifying stupid purchases. For instance, I went into the convenience store yesterday to buy cigarettes (I know, I shouldn't smoke but I have all this anxiety) and proceeded to buy a pop and candy bar. That's about an extra 3 bucks that was completely unnecessary. I was heading to my friend's house to have a beer. I really didn't need a snack to eat on the 2 minute car ride there. I bought lunch yesterday because I justified it by thinking that I just had to get away from my office. Really?
Does anybody else pinpoint situations that aren't good for their wallet?
