Lately I have noticed that I am devoting so much time scouring online retailers for fragrances. At the moment I have more than 20 bottles of perfume. Not enough for a collector but quite excessive for personal use.
I have started going back to one bottle at a time practice, wherein I finish my fragrance first before I decide to wear another one, though it is rather inconsistent. Anyway, perfumes are worn to express moods and or to enhance it, so even if I switch from one scent to another during the day, I guess there will not be any guilt in it.
However, I truly am struggling to keep myself in check because often times, my desire to sample different fragrances often leads me to a deficit. I have noticed that through most of my life whenever it came to the things that I want, I seldom consider the repercussions least of all the financial aspect. But I do believe it is time I change that. I am after all in my forties.
I have to start saving and be a bit more wiser with my decisions of else I will end up poor in my gray days with probably nothing to show but a collection of empty bottles of perfume, talking about the grandness of the days that have long since passed.
If I am to allow myself to be seduced by reckless spending I should actually at least pay attention to what I need that what I want. Honestly ever since I have been hooked with the idea of owning bottle after bottle of fragrances I somehow forgot all about clothing. So while, I may have a number of different fragrances, my wardrobe is still the same as it was four years ago. It is terrible - I know!
I just hope, I would be able to make it through this month, without needlessly spending for another blind buy. The urge is very strong but I keep myself motivated by thinking that if I delay the pleasure of the purchase now, I might be rewarded with something more enjoyable in the future - hopefully!
