You have no idea what a big deal that is for me. If I want a book, I am like, "Oh! Amazon Prime, how 'bout I order my book today and I get free 2-day shipping."
Now, don't get me wrong, I love me some Amazon Prime, but I am running out of bookshelf space. And money. I have been spending like a drunken sailor. The Anxiety Week series was a bit of a wake-up call.
I am going on a spending diet. I am getting my financial shit a little bit more in order (I just turned in an expense report from '06. I also have had stocks sitting in an "abandoned property fund" at Schwab for about a year and just today claimed it. This is just a slice of my financial delinquency.).
So today I wanted new books. I was about to buy them online. But here's the thing: I live - I am not kidding - about a half block from the library. I went there today and got two books.... for free. What a concept!
I don't play the lottery, so I can't win (see last post). But I can spend less. I want that fucking San Juan vacation house, my friends. And I will have it. Time for me to live below (way below) my means so I can get that island house LIKE I DESERVE, damn it.
On another note, I think I am running out of gas. I haven't had the most inspired blog ideas the last few days. Maybe I need a break. Or maybe just new ideas.
Do you have topics, ideas? Anything we should cover? I am taking all suggestions, and would even consider a guest post. Let me know what we need to tackle next.
