Ew, a little bit down this month.  I bought a computer and a plane ticket, so all things considered, it could be worse.  I did get a few hundo for a bonus, so that was nice, but quickly gone.  Any holiday spending tends to trigger shopping binges for me, a la this:

So my goal right now is damage control.  Total abstinence.

And more ebay listings.  Do I need 3 J.Crew velvet jackets?  YES!!!  No.  No?  No, I do not.
