Well I did get that big list done, but here it is the 10th and I still have not received 1/2 of my tuition, which I knew was going to happen. Today is my biggest enrollment day so we will see. But it is hard to pay bills when you have no money. I am very short of money this month anyway. I did the budget and it is not pretty. So what am I going to do about it? I can complain all I want but it doesn't change things.
I have a set of silverware that I purchased while I was out with daughter #2 a few weeks ago. I have a really heavy set of 18/10 that I bought last fall. Well you know how silverware disappears. So I thought it has been 8 months and already I am down silver with no kids at home. I am going to buy another set to keep in the china hutch and add to the originals as pieces go missing. Well after 3 weeks the box is still in shop and I was able to count all the silver at Easter and one fork is missing. One salad fork not half the set. I am sure it will turn up under the sofa or in one of the kids silverware drawers. I will check when I visit. But what really ticks me off is that I was scheduled to pay for this in April as I had used all these coupons and discounts So I have $89.00 in Aprils budget. Well the bill was $149.00. Macy's is at it again. Remember Christmas? I did not go to the till my daughter did, she obviously did not watch them. Well do I really need this silver? NO! I am mad that I fell into the consumer trap. Back it will go today and I just shaved about $90.00 off my budget. Jerks, crooked, baiting jerks. (stupid naive consumer Kim),
I have many costume charges that I need to pay off, but I just need to slow down and realize I won't get these until next month and to not panic and think that I have to use this months money to clear those accounts. I charge the parents for the interest so these will be paid. But I want to see a clean slate. See how impatient I am?
Although this will not be a no spend month I will have to really, really watch my pennies if I am going to pay off that last CC. I am just so broke. Last month with tax returns, extra paychecks, I felt flush. But this month back to normal. I like to feel rich!
Also I have had travel expenses that I will not have this month so that should help some. Hubby does not drive this week and both vehicles are full of gas that also helps my mood as I am not shelling out over $100.00 a week for gas!
Out My Window: Warmer yesterday, but cooler today. I still think spring is coming.
Well I have a couple of really hard dress alterations in the shop so I had better get going. The money will also be nice.
Have a great and productive day!
