Why I'm always skint?

Maybe this title explains why I love Black Friday so much! I must confess, I'm broke most of the time I need the moolah most. Last weekend, I asked my mum to help me getting a new journal (this would be journal #5 of this year) I'm skint! She asked a weird question, "Love, why are broke everytime?"
I was going to tag this into questions that will never have an answer but luckily I found my answer. It's not my fault. I've pretty strong reasons. I'm always skint because :

World has loads of lovely stationary
Stationery! My money is ruined on this. When I was a little kid, I wasn't interested in toys {aka dolls for girls} but in stationery. All kind of glitter/gel pens, colours, paint, scrapbook etc etc (it's gonna be a long list) were my property. I judge people by their stationery choice. I currently own more than 7 journals/notebooks and I already need more. Me & my twin collected 1000 stickers which is a world our record! Whenever I enter a stationery shop, I never bargain!

World is full of yummoz stuff!
Because pizza exist!

And this
Food. Food. Food
My cold cash can't be in my pocket if there's a food court around. Why say no to food while you still have some moolah left? French fries, burgers, Mc Donald's, more yummy stuff, more yummy stuff, more yummy stuff & my money is gone.

Etsy is full of pretty items
After the story of my cold cash, my Paypal balance is spent on Etsy. I'm not your average shopaholic. I can spend hours on Etsy. Last night (while taking advantage of Black Friday) I bought loads of stuff & I just can't wait to get my mail. And this mason jar is the best thing I found.
Mason jar, lid & festive straw
Seriously, it was fun putting weird/funny coupon codes on check out. 

And because I don't remember where's my money. I put it somewhere & forget it. I've been doing this for years. These are the best reasons I found. My mother is going to read it. She'd be contented, I hope so. 

If you're like me & lost money easily, enter this giveaway to get a little money! And if you're broke, enter this one to get some Scottish goodies!

What are the reasons that make you go broke? Or you're a good citizen who takes care of her/his money?


  1. You're amazing you are haha! I have a tonne of stationary too & love buying it... Glad you get stickers as well!!!!
    I wish I'd got done Etsy bargains too!!
    I never have money but that's boring reasons which it was because of beautiful things ;) xxx


  2. Haha I love this post Areeba. These are the same reason why I'm always broke too. I like clothes a lot too.

  3. hahaha,,
    i agree. i have weakness when it comes to stationery. and sour cream and onion is my favorite pringles flavour!

  4. I'm always broke! Food is my main reason as to why. I also go broke because I love to shop! Clothes, craft supplies, Etsy, jewelry, accessories, makeup, etc.

  8. I love etsy!! Half of the things that are on my Christmas Wish List are from Etsy! haha. Etsy is so dangerous.

  9. haha, I feel like I'm very much the opposite--it takes a lot of convincing to get me to part with my money!

  10. Are you kidding me! As soon as I walk into WHSmith I've spent at least £15.00! Whoops!

    Madeline - Wonderland In A Wardrobe

  11. Hahahahaha! Suddenly it all seems so clear to me!

  12. Those sound like logical reasons to me! p.s. I've never heard "skint" until now, I think I'll start incorporating it into my vocabulary :)

  13. hi!!how are you today?? :) :)

  15. Haha...love this post! Would have to say definitely on the food, clothes and gotta have music!

  16. I loved stationary as a kid too!! LOVED it. I still loved toys but I would be just as excited about going to Staples.. as I was about Toys R Us!!
    I also love pizza and CHIPS! Are we the same person? Well.. we are bloggy sisters.

  17. Seriously though. How is anyone supposed to have money around when the world is so full of things that require money!? Am I right? And you're totally correct when you say who can say no to food when there is just a little money left.

  18. I judge people by their stationery choice. I currently own more than 7 journals/notebooks and I already need more. hvac repair denver
