Shopping Often

Shopping Often

shoppingMy friend mentioned to me that he wants to check out one of those sites that will pay you to fill out surveys online like this Alan Waters blog talks about.  I’m not sure if those actually work but I figure it’s something he could look into and see if they will actually pay you a decent amount of money.  If not it probably wouldn’t be that big of a deal but if it does that would be amazing.  My friend is going to try and do some of those so he can get a bit more money besides what he makes at his job.  He has been telling me that he wants to open an account at this other website where you can track your expenses and I think that’s a good idea.  Keeping track of what you spend to stick to a budget rather than just buying stuff without knowing what you’re spending is pretty smart.  And I especially think it’s a good idea for him because he likes to randomly buy things when he goes to the store.  I will go shopping with him and he’ll have one thing in mind and when we get there he see all this other stuff he wants and decides that he should get it.  I’ve mentioned it to him but he just says that it is stuff that he wants and he’s not worried about spending too much.  And then he’ll get his bill and be like dude, why did you let me do that!  I’m like lol, it wasn’t me.  But really, I’m curious to see how this whole thing turns out.  If he’s able to get it then I’ll probably see if I can do it, too.   When I talk about my friend I hope it doesn’t sound like I’m being mean because he’s a really cool guy, he just talks to me a lot about some of the things he buys and I think that he doesn’t even really need a lot of them but he just buys them anyway.  So that’s why if I go shopping with him I’ll try to keep him from getting some stuff but of course he doesn’t listen to me and he’s just like yeah, I want to buy this anyway.  I don’t know, it’s not really my responsibility or anything but I try to help him because I know that when he realizes what he’s bought he’ll be like a little annoyed.  Of course, he can return some of it, too.  But not on the same trip as when he’s buying other stuff.  The only other thing my friend and I kind of disagree about is whether or not you should make your bed with the pillows under the blanket or not.
