Guilty Pleasure

November 9th, 2011 at 11:56 pm

I used to go to Starbucks a lot. Not because I'm that much of a coffee drinker but more because it's a great place to hang out to catch up with friends. Or, when alone, to collect my thoughts or read a good book.

Today, I went to a store to buy something I needed and found out it's still closed for about another 30 minutes. I eyed a Starbucks beside it so I decided I might as well stay until the store opens. As I ordered my frapuccino and peppermint brownie, I realized it's been a while since I last stepped on a Starbucks alone just to pass the time. I was so guilty for spending money considering I wasn't at all hungry anyway. And the worst part is that I didn't enjoy it as much because I was thinking of what I should have bought with the money instead. I realized that maybe, just like with addiction, my "impulsive" spending got me a bit scared that I might fall back to my spending ways.

    Don't be too hard on yourself. I don't think spending a few bucks on a cup of coffee means you have slid back to free spending ways. Providing you are making all payments for utilities, debt, etc. on time, I would think treating yourself say once or twice a month would be good for you. It's like going on a diet. If you always deprive yourself of everything you like, you are likely to fall of the wagon at some point. For your daily java boost, can you consider making your own coffee or trying a cheaper alternative so you don't break the bank?
