Sooooo it’s kind of sad how a few poorly-placed luxuries make me feel like I have toppled out of control on spending. I practiced some bougie “self care” this month with an expensive haircut, wax, and fancy cocktails over lavish dinners. It has not been so bad that I cannot pay my credit card weekly but it’s enough that I don’t have anything extra to throw at student loans with this paycheck. I also have to replenish my emergency fund from when i had some rough medical expenses last month.
So I’m going to do a spend fast for the last half of the month. All of my bills are automatic so those will go out and I will just not have any cards or cash in my wallet. Today I went and spent $48 at Aldi and have pulled pork stewing in the crockpot…enough to eat now and throw some in the freezer towards the end of the month.
I have cable. I have an insurance license to study for. I have a 2/3 full bottle of bourbon. I can do this!
