Over the weekend I checked out a new website called Spendster.org, a place to confess your True Confessions, and let the WHOLE WORLD know how much money you’ve wasted on JUNK. I’ve watched a few of the videos and I can relate to a few, unfortunately. Although I must say the money I’ve wasted has been buying discounted, clearanced, or from yard sales and thrift stores. I have a terrible habit of buying something on sale or clearance as a birthday present, then forgetting I bought it, or forgetting where I put it.
Mr. A and I are such packrats. It ends up costing us money because we often end up having to pay for a dumpster to haul the junk to the dump.
Although I have to say I do not rent a storage unit to store my junk in (there is an X-Files type video about storage units at Spendster.org). I resolved to never rent a storage unit in my twenties – I always thought it was a terrible waste of money. If you aren’t going to use the stuff, just get rid of it! Boy, I should follow my own advice!
