It’s days like this, that make me wonder why I still live in Cleveland, OHIO lol. We have at least 3 inches of snow on the ground, driving was horrible, my hair looks like…well….crap…and I went 10 miles an hour all the way here to work today! Makes me really want to be at home with the puppy and the hubby L
Last night I went through my finances and opened up my online bank account tracker to find SURPRISE!!! I was over drawn by 321.00 !!!!!! not 20 not 65 but 321.00!! “How the hell did THIS happen??” I wondered, mainly it was a few over drafts then the stupid overdraft fees on top of it, the husband and I have been short on cash lately, so I have been helping out with bills here and there, but apparently I stretched my crappy income a bit too far, although I thought I was on top of things.
Anyway what’s done is done, so I have to suck it up, but I looked at my account last night, to see just were my money goes, and was shocked to see that I spend a lot on crap I probably don’t need, also kind of funny…I spent 50.00 bucks the last two weeks on pregnancy cravings, my bank sheet looks something like this “Mr. Hero-6.95, McDonalds 3.25, burger king 1.25 ect. Ect.
Yup a lot of crappy junk food and it looks as thought this preggo hit every dang fast food chain in the greater northeast Ohio area!! Well I didn’t seem to hit Kentucky Fried Chicken but …you get the picture……mmmm. KFC………crap now I want that.
So maybe the spending on cravings can be explained, but the spending on magazines, lip gloss, nails polish ect. Ect. Totaling over 40 bucks for this month alone is too much for right now. So from here on out I am trying to go on a, “financial diet” spend less save more…..or lately save what I can…… if anything at all. The only money I am going to spend openly is Saturday when I go with my mother to Old Navy to get some maternity clothes because lets face it I am not getting any smaller……and then maybe a few scarves that are on sale at world market.
But over all I really need to cut back on stuff. It’s funny how once you see your finances in black n white things become so clear.
Well I am off to have my snack……one I brought from home thank you……. Not from the vending machine…..see…off to a great start already!
