I got called in to come to work, so I don’t have as much time as I thought I did to blog today…
I’ve been spending all morning trying to figure out how I’m gonna use my paycheck when it comes. I know 2 things I absolutely want to buy and I also am gonna go to my favorite farmers market some time soon so those are a few expenditures. I really wanna save at least 30 dollars from each paycheck though for christmas and stuff.
I am a master money waster.
I shouldn’t be allowed to make financial decisions on my own.
I’m trying to save up for a lot of things:
- christmas gifts
- winter stuff
- a camera that I found on ebay
- just in case
- etc etc etc
But of course there’s a very loud part of me screaming to buy anything that’s pastel and fluffy. That part of me is also probably the part of me that hates going to work.
That part of me sucks.
I think once I’m in college I’m gonna really put a lot of focus into maintaining a good financial state. I’m focused on that now of course, but it’ll be even more important when the university tries to gouge my eyes out.
I’m gonna try to get a bit more freelance work because (A) it was really rewarding when I got my Seedling magazine payment (B) I like money and (C) I think my trick will be not buying anything with freelance money until I’m in a place I’ve decided to use it i.e I have enough money to buy a big thing (like a camera) or I’m on vacation. That was a horrible run-on sentence.
So I’m gonna buckle down and focus on my finances.
I’ve even put an expense tracker in my bullet journal so you know I’m serious.
What do y’all do to save money?
Also if you know how… how do I raise my credit score? Asking for a friend. That friend’s name is Mikah.
