So first of all I have to say, it's hard being poor. It takes lots of planning and prep and you have to be pretty creative. Okay, I'm done whinning. Here's an update of how I spent all of my cash money:
$250 on a phone. Yes, you can start yelling at me now. But technically it was a present from Mummy & Daddy, so really I didn't spend that money at all.
$80 on skiing. It was an all day event and tons of fun. From a money standpoint, not the best thing to spend my dolla bills on, but from a physical & physcological standpoint, well worth it. Plus my brother is coming into town and I have to be better than him once I hit the slopes.
$15 going out. Pretty cheap, considering it covered 2 beers, appetizers, a cover charge, and two nights of fun.
I've only gone out to eat a couple of times and I'm learning how to make my lunch!!!! Small victory for me, but still a victory.
So yeah, still learning on how to live on half my income, but my savings account is looking amazing and I'm not starving to death.
