Don't pinch pennies only to end up blowing dollars. In other words, it's no good brown-bagging it every day for a week if you just blow your savings on a stack of new CDs or yet another pair of black shoes. Watch your cash flow and general spending habits very carefully, especially if your emotions are on high -- you don't want to indulge in retail therapy now. Find other alternatives when it comes to handling stressful situations.
Sounds like a reminder to keep my eBay yarn shopping to window shopping only for a while. Mark stuff to watch, maybe find an online shop or two I like, but save the buying for later.
