Life Goals

So our car is running, but it's really on it's last leg. We need a new car. We've needed a new car for awhile.

That means we really need to start saving money.

We realized that about a week ago.

Today I went to the store. 3 stores actually. (Hmmm. That seems like a problem.)

At one of those stores I spent $10 on various water flavoring packets and a random pack of sparkling diet cranberry juice.

That sort of defeats the purpose of me not buying diet sodas anymore to save money.

Especially when those random cranberry juices cost fifty cents a can.

What was I even thinking?!

Well, lesson learned.


I'm going to work out a budget. And I'm going to stick to that budget.


I'll let you know how it goes.

In other news I am slightly more on track with my eating than I was a week or two ago.

And my elliptical machine came yesterday and I did actually use it. So now I've just got to keep the momentum going. I gotta elliptical it up!

So hopefully soon I will be a skinny lady with a fat wallet and a four door fully functional vehicle.

Ahhhh yeeahhhh.

  1. Check out Dave Ramsey's approach if you need help creating a budget. With a little tweaking we were able to save $300 our first month using his method. or check the book out from your local library- "Total Money Makeover"
