This year, I'm going to be cracking the whip on myself. I have a lot of goals to accomplish, and for all of them, I need to be more disciplined in one very large area of my life.
Yes, I know. Don't cringe, I'm cringing enough for three people.
Pretty much, I've decided that every extra penny is going to be put into savings. Bills will be paid, and we will get a certain amount each month for fun, and that's it. No more. No less.
We reached our limit for this month already by a long shot. Since the 31st, we have spent over $200. Only some of it was food for both of us. Some of it was a game for Andrew's birthday, some was a bookshelf that was on sale and I couldn't pass up. And the rest? I honestly don't remember. It's that bad.
So, no Starbucks or Border's cafe for me today. No lunch at the food court. Nothing, Nada. Zip. Zilch.
I'm also starting a new cleaning schedule for myself. Mondays will be dishes and laundry. Tuesdays, I clean the bathroom. Wednesdays, it's dusting and vaccuming. Thursdays, more dishes and a good clean of the kitchen. Friday will be the general pick everything up day, and the weekends, I take a break, lol.
Let's see how this goes, shall we? Wish me luck. I'm craving Starbucks like you wouldn't believe.
