Default bipolar and money management

this was going to be a poll (though i don't know how to post polls!). lol so it will just be as it is..my question is: how do you, as a bipolar person manage money?good, bad?i'm not good with money management. during mania, shopping is 1 of the few things that i can do, and it leads me in to spending what i don't need, on things i don't need- and i've got annoyed at times when i've come across something i really want, and don't have the money to pay for it.so what about everybody else

I was super frugal for a long time, but during hypomanic phases, I just buy whatever I want and sometimes replace items that weren't broken because I found better versions. then I get " better" and slowly pay off the debt. also, on the depressed aspect, retail therapy sometimes comes into play.
When I'm frugal, I am so organized. I have everything written and I tally up every day's expenses. When I'm not so OK then I really don't care, I just guess if I have enough money to spend. so it goes back and forth I guess.
