Went to the outlet to purchase the sac de jour from YSL since they were on sale for $1385! They weren’t as appealing as I remembered it during the last two visits. I was a bit bummed but happy that I didn’t spend the money. (Ended up getting a nail in the run flat tire so will have to spend money on THAT!) I also spotted a Balenciaga clutch but passed on that too. I ended up purchasing the lavender coat I’ve been eyeing at Vince and a pair of shoes for a wedding in June. Nothing special, just necessities. I really want a new purse though. Guess I’ll save a little more and get the Chanel mini. I find that little sucker to be super useful when I travel! (Thanks to Catalina who lets me borrow hers!)
Disclaimer: In no way am I trying to teach how to budget. I’m just sharing my experiences.
With that said, it’s been two months and I am not doing well.
Well, way better than before and still above water but I could be doing better.
The hardest part is, I can’t really go places. I have a little less than $800 to spend in a month with everything covered. Including $ towards savings. I can’t even enjoy Troy because his tank is $60+ to fill up. (My mom insists that I drive the car when she doesn’t since I’m just paying it and no one is enjoying it.) Which I sure did and still do. I ended up buying a $750 camera on a whim after the shoot a week ago and I love it and I wish I wish I wish it gives me the push to make more videos!
It’s the habit of spending I can’t break. Everything is automatic in my accounts and still I check it daily. Sometimes more than twice a day. Either I need to be more busy or I have an addiction.
I was suppose to stay in for the month of March but things came up and I had some extra money. This is the month. April, I’m not doing anything. Questions will receive a no, assuming it’s to hang out. Started today. I also started my raw detox. And no, I won’t go to May 4th, I’m four days in but idc.
Also had an idea to update #BOB.
My blog was scattered. I could do this and #pigletventures but others will have to be a hashtag.
You all rmemeber #BOB (bitch on budget).
I couldn’t get myself to constantly post because the bitch bothered me.
I can’t say what the idea is because I need to not spend money on the domain. So I shall wait.
I am not to spend any money this month. Detox, no social anything, home!
