Stick to the script

Fashion over eating people, stick to the script. That line is from a Jay-Z song, but I had to tweak it just a bit. This is a no brainer for me. If I want a bag (and I'm always wanting a bag) it's usually so expensive that I need to save up for a little while to be able to purchase it. This conversation came up when I told a friend of mine that I purchased the classic Balenciaga bag (in red hot) and he said to me, "guess you didn't eat while saving for that bag". Yes, the designer prices are getting out of control lately, and the only way to keep up with the Jones? Re-prioritize. Stop all that fast food consumption, stop the cafeteria food munching, stop feasting on take out and start a bag fund. My mother would totally kill me if she heard me talking like this. She'd say there's no reason you should be spending this type of money on a pocket book. And she's absolutely correct. But who needs logic when you're rockin' the hottest latest bag, and you're the envy of all your friends. Hey this plan could help out your weight loss goals as well.
