Whenever You Feel Like It

Girls love to shop.

I guess they are born with the talent to spend loads of money in the shortest amount of time. Raft3r knows this for a fact. I was born and raised in a family full of shopaholic women.

An ex is also a certified spender. She kept tons of crdeit cards in her purse. She used them like there was no tomorrow. At least day in the mall with her is guaranteed a good workout. I had to carry a whole lot of shopping bags.

Raft3r may not be a shopping whore but I sure know the value of having the best crdeit cards at my disposal. Being away from home, I need to have available funds at all times.

I found a pretty good credit card company here and hurriedly applied for one. They got excellent service. Click on the link to find out more.

Having a credit card is a reasonable solution to any money emergency. A sudden DVD sale is a perfect example. Whenever you feel like shopping, swipe away with your crdeit cards.

So far, Raft3r has been very responsible in keeping tabs on all his bills. Being an obsessive compulsive does have its perks.

that's great you know how to handle your money. I'm afraid gumamit ng credit card kc maraming scam dito tungkol diyan. tama na yung dadala ako ng cash pag type mag-shopping. pero aaminin ko kahit mura pa yung bilhin ko napapadami naman. in the end laki ng gastos ko. hehehe

nasa blogroll na kita!

shopping is a rather expensive way of coping with many things, yummy friend. but sometimes it's a natural impulse. like your urge to, uh, well, just fill this in with whatever it is that you men love to do. :)

Raft3r said...

bestfriend, I have a post about that, too. Hehe

hitokirihosi, Salamat. You're linked, as well.

yummy friend, Kitam. Raft3r is right all along. Nyahaha

Ako I always come up with excuses to shop...I'm happy - I celebrate my happiness by shopping. I'm bored - I shop to amuse myself. I'm depressed - only shopping will cheer me up. I'm angry - only shopping will calm me down. I'm stressed - shopping is zen to me.
I'm fat - shopping is a great way to exercise. I'm tired - shopping will energize me. I'm loaded - let me spend some of my money. I'm broke - I'll just window shop. My favorite excuse: I need to buy another bag.

Raft3r said...

salve, Oo. Halata naman palusot lang, e. Hehe.

Madali lang yan kung ma-excess. E di mag-balikbayan box. :-) Hintay ka lang 4-6 weeks dating na siya Manila before you know it. Magkano ba ang charge dyan sa Baltimore? Basta ang range $40-100 a box depending on the location. Usually mas mura kung saan malaki ang concentration ng Pinoy.Tanong ka sa LBC, for example.Minsan,may promo sila like $10 off. Tapos libre kahon ata.

Hey Raft3r! Not all women are like that! Ako minsan lang... :D

Sometimes when boyfriend and I are out shopping HE ends up buying something, and ako wala. My reason is: WHen I start I might not be able to stop! Haha! At least malakas ako magfight ng temptation.

Pero if hotel/out of town travel bookings ang paguusapan, ibang usapan yun. I fail bigtime. Hehe! Kanya kanyang weakness lang!

Raft3r said...

anonymous, I'm way ahead of you. Hehe. $80 lbc balikbayan box. Thanks, though.

coriander dreams, Hehe. Pare-pareho lang tayo sa ganyang mga bagay-bagay. Nyahaha

This entry makes me feel like an alien. I never enjoyed shopping, it wears me out so quickly. I'd rather mix and match than walk in and out boutiques. Mama buys most of my things when I was still single:)

Raft3r said...

sonnet's, Consider yourself as the exception to the rule. Maigi yan. Iwas gastos. =)

Demiera said...

Unfortunately, I'm a pretty compulsive shopper. I may not max credit cards but I can't leave a store empty handed...it's against my religion! Plus, there's something exhilarating about buying things even if you don't need them...lol!

I shop, my boyfriend watches football nonstop...it works out!!

Raft3r said...

demiera, Hehe. Everybody's happy then. Good 4 you!

sweetie said...

never fails. always makes me feel good. like you sweetie. nyahahaha!

Raft3r said...

sweetie, Raft3r and credit cards. Pretty nice combo you got there. Hehe

partner said...

OC? You're the worst I've met, partner! Haha! =P You're worse than me! You're the only one I know who's patient enough to monitor the number of text messages sent for a period of time! Nyahahahaha! Miss you! See you soon!

Raft3r said...

partner, You got that right. Hehe
