So here are some of my wants....
- Knobs for my desk- I have a pretty rad vintage desk that I got at a garage sale when I was in high school but over the years I've lost a couple of the knobs on the drawers. I am only missing 2 but I would want to replace all 5 so that they all match. I checked some out at Wal-Mart and I could get a package of 10 for $15... I don't need 10.
- Strappy flat sandals- At the new job I can wear sandals (as long as they have some kind of strap around the back of my foot), I would really like to have some sandals that I could wear. I usually wear knee high boots (which get really hot) or my black flats depending on what pants I wear. I would like to be able to wear sandals like the other girls do.
- Make up- I have a pretty decent amount of foundation and stuff but the problem is that all of the sudden my every day make up is making my face break out. I also have some Bare Minerals make up that I like but it sometimes feels itchy on my face.
- A house- I want to buy a house. That's pretty much my dream right now, I've experienced some set backs lately with my job situation and stuff but I'll be back to saving as much as I can once I get back on track with getting paid.
So as of right now 75% of my list is relatively cheap and I could budget it in but I also know it's not really stuff that I need.
My goals for the week are going fine. Not great. Not terrible. I have failed at packing my lunch for the week. I only packed my lunch on Monday and I've spent money on junk food the rest of the week so I need to get back on the wagon. I am doing pretty good at drinking more water. Could be doing better but hey at least I'm trying. I have had at least 2 of my 16 ounce cups of water each day. The thing that derails my water drinking is that I hate hate HATE having to get up and go pee so many times during the day. My co-workers know that I'm drinking a lot of water and it doesn't bother them that I take frequent breaks but it annoys me. I haven't had a chance to re-evaluate my budget yet, well I haven't had a chance to actually look at my spreadsheet and make changes but I have been thinking about different places where I can cut back. I think I have a plan for making my phone bill cheaper (maybe? more on that later) and I hope the plan works out. I'm also thinking about possible side hustles and trying to talk one of my friends into helping me have a garage sale so I can get some extra cash.
How is everyone else's week going?
