Wallet Woes!!!

Okay so I wish this was my wallet.  I am embarrassed to say that my wallet looks like my dog has been chewing on it, and I can't even close it, it is so stuffed with receipts that need to be thrown away.  I was cool with my wallet until a sales woman laughed about the mess I threw out on the counter.  I was also cool about her calling me out on my mess,  but it got me to thinking about my whole re-organizing my life and I wondered maybe if I tried to re-organize my wallet it would help me better organize my financial situation.  I know it sounded crazy in the beginning but it actually motivated me to clean out my wallet which in turn made me take care of some financial issues that were lingering and not to mention be able to close my wallet.   Once I cleaned out my wallet and had all my cards laid out.  I decided it was time to go shopping for a new wallet.  I needed something that was going to hold all my cards, change, checkbook, cash and receipts.  This was going to be fun.  I had found something else that needed to be upgraded from the outside in, and that was my money management.  It started with simply laying out everything so that I could see what I owned and store them in a way that was easy to see and easy to access.  I was on my way to the mall to shop for a wallet.  I had some money saved up and some extra left over from my shoe fund so I was set to find a good quality wallet.  After about three hours in the mall, I found a nice affordable wallet and a matching black bag.  All within budget, I might add.  I couldn't wait to get home and get in my magic mirror.  This transformation that I have started is getting better by the day.  I am truly seeing a difference in my life and I do not want it too end.  As I danced around my house the next morning I was excited about my day.    I smiled and thought to myself as I walk out the door, and threw my new purse over my shoulder,  I can't wait to see what is next for me and my transformation process. Until the next transformation.  May all your outfits match!
