Two weaknesses: My kids and scrapbooking. My kids have way too many clothes and toys. Even though what we buy is mostly second hand or clearance mark downs both boys have way to many things. I love to scrapbook and when I go to the store for a specific supply I inevitable buy more than I came for. I cannot help myself LOL!!

I'd have to go with the majority... eating out! I hate to eat a sack lunch at work and I really hate to cook. My husband works nights and I'm home cooking dinner for myself and 3 kids, not fun.

Lately, I have had a hard time staying away from Starbucks too. Cafe Mocha in the morning and a Frapaccino at lunch. Two things wrong with that, $ and calories. This week I'm down to just 3 drinks. I guess it's a step.

My biggest money weakness is probably food. Although we've cut way back on going out to eat, there are still times that what's in the pantry does not a meal make, y'know? So then we go to the store and stand there asking each other, "So what do you want for dinner?" And end up buying lots of stuff, but not neccesarily dinner stuff. LOL- now if I actually MENU PLANNED, I might be better off. I may have to start thinking about doing that...

FOOD! I love to eat out and I am also prone to "impulse" buys at the grocery store...it's amazing how little things can add up!

Mine is definitely going out to dinner! Although buying 'stuff' for the house is a close second. I am avoiding that one by not going shopping - especially at my 'problem stores' like TJMaxx and Marshalls and Target- well any place that sells 'stuff' like vases ect.

As for the eating out, I have been making so much food - early in the week like sunday- that we always have leftovers in the fridge so I wont be tempted to say 'I dont feel like cooking lets go out'. This also helps with lunches - I always have leftovers for lunches.

My weakness is music and eating out. I eat out everytime I work, but I hate to make a lunch before work and I don't like to cook. Music, I love music and it's not just to listent to the radio. I need to but CD and a new CD player for my car, mine old one was dying and I go it for $28 after I mark it down at work, because someone opened it and returned it and with my discount. The problem with this is that I only had $10 is my checking account to start with. But I didn't charge it. I wrote the check and now I pray that check I wrote to pay my insurance wouldn't go through till Friday. Oh, I can't forget the concerts. The high off them will last my weeks.

My kid. I just love buying her clothes or things I think she needs. And of course anything she asks for. LOL Just about. We went to Disney on Ice and I spent $14 on a little stuffed animal which I could probably have got for $8 at the Disney store, but it was a special occassion. yada yada yada I am really good at going without for myself, but if its for her, I'm screwed. LOL
