The love and bane of my life.
Ebay has saved me so much money over the years. But boy has it also cost me a lot of money.
A l o t.
Looking back through my purchase history is an interesting exercise and I can actually plot my moods.
And looking at the sort of crap I was buying. . . .Oh. Dear. God.
So many ideas for new b u s i n e s s e s I should start , new h o b b i e s I was obsessed with, oh so many p r e s e n t s for ‘the present draw- just in case’. And the thrill of the postman ringing the door with arms full of p a c k a g e s for me. I felt loved, special, happy, oh so enthusiastic and could justify each and every purchase with a long d i a t r i b e about why it was needed. Now what I recognise as hypo-manic behaviour.
So now, do I stay away completely from Ebay? Or do I try to manage my spending and use it to make genuine savings for things we actually need?
I hope you are all well,
