I like Kate Bingaman-Burt for several reasons. Firstly, she appears to be marginally worse with money than I am. Secondly, she’s chosen to document her own particular trail of consumption by drawing her credit card statements. (Oh, and our last.fm compatibility is ‘Super’ – high five!)
While it’s an interesting comment and observation on spending, I definitely love the image of Kate faithfully copying ones and zeroes in her own hand as some kind of unhinged diversion technique. But while she was drawing 6 monthly statements in 2004, she’s now down to just 3, so it must be working for her.
