Sweet Little Lies

“I’ll have just one this week and that’s it!”

Have you heard yourself ever say that knowing your heart that it wasn’t true? It ‘s the sweet little lies we tell ourselves in order to survive the day!  It’s those moments of craziness that we need a crutch, something to relish, escape! We know in the back of our heads we should be saving our money and stuffing it under the mattress. Ready to invest with our little bundle of cash once the market regains control and slowly rises to new heights!

But in our quest to financial healthiness have we become to puritanical? No longer is take – out an option on those stressful days! Forget the pack of smokes they cost a fortune! And who has time to sip an expensive glass of wine? The one thing left is  that glorious five dollar Starbucks caramel macchiatto!  The one thing every financial guru tells you to avoid, they remind you that 5 dollars a day, adds up to 182 5 dollars over a year not including compound interest. Yikes!

I have cut back on my Starbucks habit for obvious reasons like ensuring I can still stick into my jeans and the guilt of spending 5 dollars a day on that one glorious luxury.  I confess Starbucks is my sweet little lie. It’s my clutch for those horrendous days and my companion when I’m in need of a friend. Perhaps, it does add up, but I just keep telling myself enjoyment is in a good cup of coffee. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

I just sip and enjoy! Afterall, there is worst things in life to enjoy! Isn’t there?

What is your one sweet little lie? Do you ever feel guilty about it?

  1. I can’t pass a store and not shop. I had to have my cell phone looked at (and later replaced – I murdered another one) and while i waited I wandered into a nearby store. 3 new shirts later, I dealt with my phone….. oh, and wine after work is a necessity!

  2. haha… my lie is usually about food that is already in my house, or that i’m about to buy. “if i buy this big bag of chocolates, i’ll make htem last… like… weeeeeks!”… and then, when it’s at home, i’ll say, “ok, i’ll have another today, but that means, none tomorrow…?” lol.
    starbucks is so very tempting, though – especially since, once you’re there, why would you choose to get something boring like ‘just coffee’ or ‘just tea’ when you can have something fancy, carb-loaded, and drizzled with caramel. Yummmmm… so glad I don’t live or work near a starbucks 😛

    1. Carb loaded drizzle caramel! You said it! And I’m already dreaming of it!!

      It’s funny I do the same thing – that one bag of chips will last a week and it might survive the night. I just pretend they are zero calories and thus another lie. Oh! The web of lies we spin 😉

      1. haha, i try to avoid it by putting it back, with only a handfull of whatever ‘it’ is in my hand… thinking, ‘hey, i’m so lazy, i won’t be willing to get up, go to the kitchen, get the stool out, and get more of ‘it’ ‘… apparently I am less lazy than I am addicted to unhealthy things 😛
        I like the zero calories lie… that’s a good one. I’ve also heard “cake so light it’s probably taking calories off!”
