Pay raise!

February 9th, 2007 at 08:22 pm

I got good news today. Effective Monday I will be getting a 50cent an hour pay raise at my full time job. Yay! This amounts to an extra $60/month. Yippee. I immediately broke out the budget to decide where to put it. Not done playing around with options. Will definitely be put to good use. Smile Happy Friday to me!

New computer!

February 3rd, 2007 at 07:31 am

I did it! I saved for over Tuesday night I went out and got myself a laptop! I'd been looking at prices and deals, and when I saw one I felt was best, I jumped. With a protection plan it was about $200 more than I had saved, but I'll repay myself from my second job. It's soooo nice. My old computer is 7years old. It's been limping along for probably the past two years. I could have replaced it a while ago if I got another desktop or a cheaper laptop, but I wanted something that would last a decent amount of time, and do what I wanted it to do, otherwise I'd just want to replace it quicker. I wish it didn't have window's vista b/c it's so new, but couldn't really get one w/o at this point, so oh well. Ces't la vie.


'Nother 2 days, another 2 dollars

February 3rd, 2007 at 07:23 am

Two more days w/o spending. I had a dream last night that we got pizza. I was so pissed to blow that much money so early, but also to not be able to put it in my challenge money. Guess it's working. I've been sick the past two days, so that's helped.


Before: $22
Now: $24
