So what's been going on in my life-
4th of July fun, dating and not dating, a quick vacation to Chicago, and lots of Delta Zeta recruitment stuff.
Also, during the month of July, I decided to track my spending. I got a little note pad (see pic below) and wrote down everything that I spent. I think I might have only missed a few things where I paid in cash throughout the entire month. I wasn't really monitoring how much I spent but I wanted to see where my money was going. It always seems like it disappears so quickly. Well... let me tell you. I spend way too much money. I eat out A LOT (which I'm sure is why I need to lose a few pounds)! And those $3-$5 breakfasts or snacks add up quickly. I also had some big expenses in July. $500 fixing my car, $200 fixing my dog, a birthday party, and the 4th of July. So for August, not only am I going to track my spending, I'm going to try to limit it as well. Here are a few guidelines I'm going to follow-
- Only eat out 2-3 times per week total (including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and my late night snacks)
- No online shopping and only buying things that are absolutely necessary
- Try really hard to keep Clark healthy and my car running nicely
- No manicures/pedicures
- Limit my alcohol consumption (it gets really pricey y'all)
