Oh no I'm overdrafted but I am fixing it...problem spending

I lost my mind at the super market and ended up spending every bit of cash on the card…I thought I was safe but then i remembered I already spent $30 more than was in my account…a friend thank goodness is lending me the precious money to put in my account !! what happened I will never know…I bought a bunch of food that sounded good but wtf?


Do you feel manic? :thinking::thinking::thinking:

not really…but it was like I was manic in the store…I didn’t pay attention to how much it was costing…it was like I was pretending I’m rich for a split second…?? baffled really.


Were you hungry when you went food shopping? That is my downfall

I got everything paid and have too much left. Now I’m wondering where I made a mistake in the math. I always do that then think I have money left over to spare only to look back and find the mistake later or just have to adjust things down. It gets really depressing.

The most basic thing about shopping is never shop while hungry. You just proved why. Maybe you didn’t have food at home and couldn’t help it.

I’m not overly hungry when I go grocery shopping. I still spend quite a lot . If I was into beans and pulses etc I’d probably spend less.

I’ve been really struggling last month. Not doing anything stupid but finding it hard to save money. Usually I get by but seriously that price of petrol is getting dumb and the car sucks some money. It’s over $1.50 a litre but still I should be doing better…

This pay period starts Wednesday and I’m getting serious. No beer or alcohol. Spend only what i need to on the car and just try and save some money. It really does suck when your on a fortnightly pay cycle and your skint after a week…Feel your pain brother!

I spent too much on rice and kung pao chicken for my bible study group. But it was fun to cook everything and I hope they enjoy it.

I haven’t gone grocery shopping yet, but I often make the mistake of going when I’m hungry even though I know better. I have some items to return that I ordered online, and then I will go shopping after. Hopefully I’ll stay within my budget.

I hear you - im exactly the same when shopping, i just throw it in without thinking, buying steaks etc, that sometimes i dont even eat and end up binning them instead of freezing it.

Im gonna live out my freezers this week. Im sure the banks gonna ring me up before long - cos i been into the overdraft far too soon after getting paid latley.
