Got a Case of the Mondays!

June 8th, 2009 at 05:00 am

Here's Monday & I'm in a sleepy mood. Dont want to work today Smile

I've had a great weekend. Stayed within my grocery & entertainment budgets! Yeah Smile

I'm kinda in a financial stall right now. I'm sticking within my budget, but as things are tight, I'm not putting as much to savings as I'd like. So now I'm looking at alternate ways to generate income.

The first step I'm going to take is to list some things on Craigslist. I have:

an old desk
a scientific calculator
a graphing calculator
a wireless router
an extra DVD player.


I have a lot of upcoming incedental expenses in the next month & every little bit helps. I have the following:

Car Registration
Car repairs - check engine light is on
Dental Bills - cavity to be filled
Sister Birthday
Dad Birthday
Dad Father's Day
Mini Vacation - want to drive to the beach at least 2 times this month. Can be done very frugally, but gas will still be an extra expense.

I've decided to not renew my AAA membership this year.

In lunch news, I've packed breakfast, lunch & snacks 100% of this month again so far! Its become pretty easy Smile

And in utility news, my electric usage is low, more so than this time last year. My gas usage is at 0!

I still have yet to turn the air on, although its getting much more humid. I'm hoping to hold off as long as possible, but historically, by mid-month the A/C goes on.

Hope everyone has a good week!

    Good luck with Craigslist. I am going to list my old graphing calculators too... hoping to catch some of those first time college kids trying to prepare for their first semester Smile

    Well done for staying within budget !!

    I maxed my entertainment budget at the first weekend of the month :-(... Thankfully I have some overtime coming my way but I guess I should be putting that to something more substantial than entertainment...

    Ommmph.... oh and great job on the lunches - I'm also a brown-bagger :-)

    Well I'm not much help on the work front, I woke up with a migraine (managed with pain medication at the moment) and have a dental appointment today, so I called in sick.
    That's why I actually have time to read and respond to some blogs.

    I have 100% packed my breakfast so far this month too! Pats on back to all of us!

    I'm with you...I'm staying on track with bills and budget, but with decreased income, I get lazy and take that away from savings and extra debt repayment, and don't really try to replace it. I've been feeling the itch to generate extra income and make up for some of that.
