Charge It

I only just begun to charge
Impulsive buys are way too large
My credit card sighs
While bankbook cries
My pay cheque I need to enlarge


*So many things to buy since I bought a house, but I really am a wise shopper : )

    I was in a similar situation several years ago. I am settled down now, and I only use my cards in an extreme emergency. Enlarging one's paycheck is a very difficult thing to do.

    Your credit card sighs while your bankbook cries...Love it! I think you should march straight into your supervisor's office and demand an enlarged paycheck...Congrats on your new home, I know it must be exciting for you - Tim

    My favorite store is home sense, I don't know if you have this chain where you live. Great prices on designer products. I also enjoy a good bargain.
