This past week has been good. I unfortunatly see my bank account shrink as bills are paid and I head into work each day earning more money. This next pay period I will have to really save the cash I bring in so that I am not in this broke predicamit next month.
This weekend is the finace’s birthday so we are going camping on the coast. We have most of our camping items so there is no cost to incure for getting the right gear. We may even barrow some gear from a friend. That is always great 🙂 We just have to purchase food for us as most people coming will be bringing their own food to share and enjoy.
I have been good this week by bringing my lunch each day to work. Since my manager is out of the office this week spending time with her kids for spring break, I have to stay in the office, answer phones, and be around for walk in guests. I am not a fan of that part of work but its part of the job right now. I have saved probably $5-$10 each day if I went out to eat. Yesterday after work I went to Starbucks and bought a frapachino because I was SO Sleepy. I spent $3.95. I thought I had cash in my pocket but I was wrong. I deposited it to not spend it.
I used that dollar bill to buy myself a Arizona Ice tea, for 99cents its so worth the value. With tax I spent $1.09. Refreshing and satisfying.
I am getting more intrigued with FP blogs I follow. Thank you to all the FP blogs out there. I dont feel alone and love reading your struggles and achievements.
