Default anbody else get into spending sprees every now and again

I do this about every 3 months or so. ill save and save and save ill bring lunch to work just so i dont spend money then ill randomly be online and OOOOOOO i need this and this and this and this

And this will go on for like 3 weeks and i look at my bank and dang i spent 2000 in 3 weeks.


Anyone else do this.


It stresses me out so bad to where ill be putting my credit card number in and ill be sweating uncontrollably over like 100 bucks. and im not poor or anything its just the fact that im spending money. im somewhat a penny pincher.

It happens to us, personally though I get into those kind of sprees when it comes to projects. I just built a few things in the garage and it was like I nedd this, this, oh this would be nice, need this that, a few of these one of those would be great... $700 later I walking out of lowe's with a bunch of sh*t I really didn't need but wanted anyways. Im also like that with truck parts, in one week I spent oh $1600 or so on various performance parts. But I also have a "mod/toy" account strictly for those moments so Im not screwing with any bills, savings accounts or credit cards in anyway...

I normally keep my spending sprees to the small stuff like $20 deals from woot or other sites. I did just drop a decent chunk of change on building a new computer though so that's my big ticket item for quite awhile. Next decent amount I spend will be on the truck, I don't think I can afford gears this winter though.
