I was way over my estimate. All because of amazon. I spent 135 total (estimated 120). Did not pay for date on Friday. Slightly over on thrifting. 10$ on towels. 30$ on useless shit. Groceries 40$. And then weatherproofing on amazon 40$. crafting on amazon 6 $. Bought (5$) and made (5$) baked goods for my students because they are awesome. Floss and steel wool 3$. This does not quite add up but on my spreadsheets all the amounts are a bit more precise.
@grandma_nancy so that seemed ok about the payment stuff with the new dude? Dating. The best/worst.
@grandma_nancy right? new is exciting but also so tricky
@grandma_nancy I generally find it hard to accept gifts, and I have had bad experiences where dudes expect something when they pay. Can you suggest cheaper spots and explain why? If you keep seeing him then you can figure out something that works for both of you, probably.
just got back from a trip, so am continuing to recover. tonight I am going on a date with someone I have met once through mutual friends. It is the rural midwest so in my experience, he will be very confused when I offer to pay for half. potential monies for date: 20 (unlikely) tomorrow, I must do errands. finish doing laundry: 4-6 dollars. groceries: 50 dollars. I also have plans to thrift and have lunch with friends. thrifting: 25 dollars. eating out: 20 dollars. estimate: 100-121.
my estimate was essentially LOL. bar. 6.50. Thanks dude I'm now going on a date with for covering the rest of the tab. Should I feel bad? farmer's market plus impulse foodz. 20. Laundry. 5.75. Amazon. 32 + 17 Indiegogo. 100. museum ticket for later this month. 14. 195.25. The amazon and indiegogo might not have been the best choices, but my friends are opening a bar....
@Aequorea Victoria YAY for you! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY
Tonight: paint and partake that is already paid for. Then the bar. 15. Tomorrow, laundry and farmers' market or groceries. Laundry. 4. Farmers market. 10. Total: 25.
@nell yeah this seems like an honest description of motherhood that I can relate to. I can imagine that if I had a kid these things would go through my head. It makes motherhood seem less like a perfection on pinterest that is unattainable.
My savings goal of $ 7000. In the August check in it was 1550, but that was because of how the date of the posts and dates of my monthly checks work out, and it is now 4555. Raises are the best. This month I have achieved things. Some money is 403 b, and I opened a Roth IRA. But neither of those is part of the savings plan. I should probably save 5% to my Roth because I have a 5% match for the 403 b, and in case I want a house.... I can loan myself money!
