Bad Habits

My number one bad habit is procrastination. I was SUCH a procrastinator in school. I even did a study on it in one of my courses comparing grade average and level of procrastination. I was never burned by it (other than lack of sleep) and so never learned my lesson. I still procrastinate most thing, but I'm working on it and getting better. However I'm still not complete that quilt...
Another bad habit I have is cracking my ankles. It feels so much better once I do it but it's such a loud sound and probably can't be good for me.

I also eat mindlessly OFTEN. I'll sit at my computer and have chips next to me and before you know it they are all gone and I don't remember eating THAT many. Same goes for chocolate chips, cookies, pretty much any snack food.

I go to bed too late. It's rarely before midnight and sometimes I receive calls to work at 5:30. It disrupts my sleep patterns. It's a hard one to break, I'm most awake at night and feel like it's the time I can get the most accomplished.

As for money bad habits I guess not investing would fall under procrastination, and I used to buy things I wouldn't use. I have a dress, a couple of shirts and a pair of jeans all still with the tags on them. I am getting better at that one now too.

Do you have any bad habits, personal or financial?


  1. I don't invest either. I blame it on my aversion to risk, but really, I'm too lazy to take the time to find low to no-risk investments - even a savings account with a better interest rate would be better than simply let my efund sit there. But I keep putting it off. I guess that's both financial and personal.

    I have a friend who used to do supply teaching and would operate on the same schedule as you. She had to go to bed super early too and NEVER did anything socially on sundays to Thursdays. She's a full time teacher now but says she'd return to supply teaching in a second if the schedule was better.

  2. procrastination. That picture is spot on. That and plane simple lazyness.

  3. OMG! That. Is. SOOO. Me right now!!

    I've moved through all the stages and now I'm on the 6th. FREAK OUT TIME! AAIYEEEE!!

  4. Yes it,s me, how did you know :)

  5. My biggest bad habit is eating out. I've tried to curb it over the last year, but I still have times where I fall back into it. My parents ate out all the time when I was younger and living at home and I unfortunately, was maintaining the tradition and got my husband hooked on it. It still is one of the hardest things for me to control when it comes to our budget.
