I suck at this whole keeping a community thing. Anyone want to take over for me? I'm not really online much anymore, so I can't really do this.

So, here's what I spent money on this weekend:
$20 withdrawl from the ATM to pay for my meds, rat food, getting the car washed, and gas in my car.
$63 on groceries... yeah, we eat a lot.

I am now down to $64.53... and I don't get paid again until next week.

What I still need to get:
$14 for my credit card minimum payment (I'll pay it off when I get my financial aid in September)
Some small things from the store, milk, bread, etc.

Hopefully, the half tank I have in my car will last me a while, I still need to drive up to Dr. Mayer's office on Wednesday. Damn her office being on the other side of town....

Because of shiggity's bugeting post, I am going to track all my expenses this weekend so I will finally find out where all my money is going. See, I get paid every other Thusday and I am usually broke by Monday. Sad, isn't it?

Well, I guess I can start out now.
Previous Balance- $258.48

1. I went to WalMart to buy some household stuff/personal items (see previous post) and spent $27.19
2. Wrote out a check for my cell phone bill for $83.12 (this is my phone line and Elias' line)

Now, that brings me down to $148.17 and I still need to buy groceries, put gas in my car, buy my rattie some food, and pick up my perscription from the pharmacy. I'm hoping to only spend $50 on groceries, heck if I can get it done for $48, that'll be nice and put me an at even $100 almost.

I really wish I got paid more... I only got paid last night... I'm definetly going to be broke by Monday. And I'm really not spending the money on anything FUN!

I should have known, college=poor.
Meh. It could be worse, right?

I am so glad I get paid tonight. I have $3 in my account.

A cheap way to make your own Fabreeze spray: put a fabric softner sheet in a spray bottle with some water, let it soak for a few days. The water will smell really good :)

I need to pick up my perscriptions from Wal-Mart tomorrow. $40. I hope I am going to have enough money to buy the food I need. See, I am going in for oral sugery next week and am going to be eating soft food for quite a while. So, I need to buy a separtate set of groceries for me, since Elias shouldn't have to suffer with Apple Sauce and mashed potatoes all week like me.

What really sucks about this sugery is the cost: $1700. My mom is being VERY awesome and taking care of it for me.

Eh. More some other time. Bye for now.

that my wardrobe needs some re-vamping. I need a change. The thing is... I am REALLY broke (obviosuly since I'm posting here). I also want to get a nice hairstyle and a nice color job (and not just from Supercuts). I'm thinking about going to black again. I really liked black.
I also want to buy myself some new make-up.

I really hate it when I have to deny myself a treat now and then because I have no money. I have thought about selling my Education textbook, but I'd hate to sell it and then have to borrow someone's book in class....

Poo on being broke.

My free trial with AOL is going to expire soon. I need to call them and try to get a few free months out of them. They always seem to do that when they someone tries to cancel. I always hated that about AOL, but now it's going to prove useful.

Helpful cheap tip of the day:
Growing your own fresh herbs saves money. Freeze them in small bags so you can have fresh herbs all winter long. Basil is your friend.

My paycheck is going to be gone by the end of the weekend and I won't even get any fun money out of this check.

I hate cell phone companies. I signed a two year contract with Alltel and I'm really regretting it. If I brake the contract there is a HUGE fee ($300 I think). I guess I'm going to have stay with them then... my contract doesn't expire until next March. Yuck.
