for me, depression/the blues = a reason to spend
that is, mostly on things ive been wanting for so long, but just held back due to its non-essential nature (before i got the blues). not that i dont need it - i usually end up using it all the time anyway, so its not like it was useless to begin with. depression tends to push me over the edge of budgetary reason.
though i dont really spend beyond my means - i do know my limits, and as much spending as i do when im feeling down, i dont go overboard and empty my bank account. thats just foolish and dumb.
of course, im glad i dont have a credit card - it would have been maxed out by now.
what do YOU do?
