So, no-spendy August hasn't exactly gone perfectly so far you guys.

I mean, sure, I haven't bought any more books* (even though I was really really tempted) and the list of things I haven't bought even though I've TOTALLY wanted to and convinced myself I NEEDED them and weren't they cute/awesome/functional/fun/cool etc. is long, but still, I have spent some monies.

But I think maybe it's ok. See, I signed up to walk another 10K, and I enrolled in a photography class for Fall, so although I'm spending, I made the excuse that I had to do it now in case they filled up before I got a chance to register.

It's hard y'all. There's so much stuff out there! And it's sunny! And that makes the stuff want to come home with me! Or something.

Good thing I only have so much money in my bank account, or I swear, I'd have purchased another digital camera already. Without returning the first one. Argh!

*Updated to add: I bought books. Today. I feel bad. But they sent me a coupon! It's how they lured me in. But they're gifts for people! Except that one that's for me. I'm no good at this.

I must say I believe that buying books is always a fabulous idea. So yay!! But not yay because of the no spendy part.

I think the 10K is also a great thing to spend money on but I'm also partial to running too.

Anything else you want me to enable you in?

Also? I tried to comment on your blog a few gazillion times, but blogger doesn't seem to like me today. *dramatic sigh*

I signed up for evening classes starting September recently too. But I'm actually in the opposite situation to you - I'm trying to spend money, because I'm too much in the habit of just saving the stuff up pointlessly and doing sod-all with my free time; instead of just spending the money on doing stuff I've been meaning to do for years.

On the plus side, it paid for my trip round Europe a while back.. but it's not really worth doing nothing & saving up with no reason. So screw it, you can't take it with you & therefore I shall spend it :)

Well, Dominic, you can always send any extra money my way if you can't think of what to do with it! :)

Put a link to your Amazon wishlist in your sidebar, I might buy you a book when I'm well-off ;)

But I've already bought all the books in the entire universe! (or so it feels) ;)

I'm trying to keep my eyes off the new Amazon Kindle - you know - the cheap one, that isn't actually that expensive...
