Tell Me How You Feel....Part 7


I know it's happened before and as much as we hate to admit it, sometimes we can go overboard with the amount of makeup that we think we "need" and end up spending a little more than we had anticipated.  I've done it more frequently than I'd like to admit in public and quite frankly I understand that you have too, no need to lie, we're all friends here, right? 

Here's a scenario:  You go to the mall one day, you stop at the MAC counter and to your surprise MAC has released ANOTHER collection, of course you're overjoyed and start perusing the lipsticks and eyeshadows.  Still with me?  Ok.  After a few minutes of gazing at the new items we realize that you only have $10 in your pocket and you don't get paid two weeks from now.  Panic mode sets in.  What do you do when you clearly are interested in the products set before you and the girl at the counter feels pretty confident that she's going to make a sale out of you?  You start sweating bullets and then you remember, you have that credit card in handy, no big deal, you'll pay it back as soon as your statement comes in.  Cool.  The only thing is you buy damn near everything in sight because of this.  You figure since you don't have to "pay" for it now you'll do so in time.  Still here?

Okay, so now that you have the whole collection with you back at home finding petty joy in doing swatches you get a text from a bill collector reminding you of balance due that you have yet to pay.  Surprise, surprise, it's the credit card company and no, you cannot pay your credit card balance with your credit card, lol.  You only have $10 and that's for lunch for the next week since you are a broke college student.  Now you are STUNNED!  You have all this makeup and you don't know where your next meal is coming from nor do you have enough funds to pay off a balance.  What do you do?  Call somebody, anybody, just don't call me!  LOL

Have you ever been in a situation such as this?  What did you do?  How did you overcome it and has it taught you to do better with finances?  Tell me in the comments!
