Trying to do too much

January 30th, 2015 at 08:44 pm

This is what happens to me when I get stressed. I try to fix everything and do everything all at once. Not sure why that is...but that is where I am at right now.

Not much has changed on the money front. I should start getting a salary from our business in about another month. The extra $200 a month will do a lot!

And I am trying to get myself on a schedule. I have one, but its not consistant and it doesn't include everything. My goal is to make sure I have Housework, Meal Plans, Work, Work from home (our business), and Workouts all together. Here is to hoping this is a productive weekend.

Ebates money and Grocery planning

January 21st, 2015 at 07:20 pm

Well, I have been using Ebates every time I can. Used it to buy Tax Software for our business. I use it to buy supplies for my job. And any other time I could. So I have $27.40 coming to me so far! The check doesn't cut until 02/15, so maybe I can get some more in there. I plan to use it towards my CC #3.

I am really trying to focus on my budget. I have $80 allowed for groceries. I have $75 worth on my list. Hopefully I can get it lower than that and leave the remaining in the jar. I really need to stick with the jars!

So I am just trying to stay focused. I feel good about where I am headed. Just trying to remember that I am a work in progress. Smile

Had 3 no spend days!

January 14th, 2015 at 07:30 pm

I was pretty excited to have 3 days in a row with no spending. Between work and hurting my back, I haven't really done much. I did have to break down and buy a few things today. Spent $13 to hopefully make me feel better. No Flu luckily...just sinus stuff.

I also watched a Suze Orman video today. It was about her and how she got to where she is now. I feel like if she can gain financial knowledge and wisdom at 29, then I can at 33! Although no one is giving me 50K and I am not suing Merryl Lynch, but she still took steps to get to financial success. And I want to have financial success! Anyway...just random thoughts. Smile
