When I was younger, I didn't really understand the value of money. In my tweens, I would ask my parents to buy me brand name clothing like Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, etcwithout a worry about money because well... it wasn't my money! Haha! I didn't think about how hard my parents had to work to gift me with that one piece of clothing that I begged for... all that mattered was that I was COOL!!! And now that I look back at my photos, i certainly did not pull off cool with my large circular glasses complete with protective string, awkward hair, etc... haha! (i'll post a pic sometime :P)
Now that i'm nearing my mid-twenties and I fully realize the value of money, i've really been into.... COUPONS! Some people think it's weird or that you're "cheap" but really... why would you pay for something full price when you can get it for almost, if not, fully free! (Extreme Couponing, anyone?)
Have your spending habits changed as you got older?
