  1. Spend and Spend Some More

    I knew it was going to be an expensive week because I've had an uncontrollable urge to go out shopping since Monday. I just wanted to go browse the stores and buy new things that caught my eye. Well, I managed to stop myself from going to the mall, but I ended up losing control of the grocery budget.

    Saturday was beautiful, but cold, and I just had to get out of the house. I went by an asian grocery across town that I had heard of, and wanted to check out. Ended up buying some vegetables ...
