Today's event

January 1st, 2009 at 08:24 pm

I pretty much just relaxed today and then headed to the gym worked out for almost 2 hours one of those hours on the elliptical burned 420 calories Smile then hit the grocery store spent $19.57(.43 applied to challenge/cc debt) and it was basically all healthy foods,which is more expensiveFrown Took my sister my car so that she can run some errands tomorrow.

And then I came home Frown and watched a program on PBS regarding the concentration camps in Germany. As an African American I know what blacks went through in this country and some of those stories are almost unbelievable and then I watch this story and I just can't understand why people would want to hurt another group of people based on race, religion or gender or anything else for that matter. To see those people being brought out of those camps was just terrible reminds me of slavery and the Jim Crow era of the early 60s...I just can't even imagine what people were going through back then. I thank God that we are moving in a new direction. I must admit I was not an Obama supporter at first and changed my view of him later on in his campaign but I have to say I never thought I would see an African American as president in this country and to me it is a symbol not only to this country but people around the world how race, sex, religion are becoming no longer a major factor for decisions

Here's my spending for today:
Expense Categories
Gasoline $20.00
Bills: Storage $48.47
Gifts(apples for sis) $2.69

Payday and how the money is spent

August 19th, 2008 at 01:41 pm

Yesterday was pay day so I paid the following:
$1512 on cc (this money came out of my challenge Frown much of it dental work)
$192.04 Electric
$20 Tithes
$100 on cc
$51.03 Water
$53.53 Directv
$25 IRA
$170 EF ($40 of this was from not paying a phone bill for the land line I no longer have)
$10 X-mas fund
$20 personal spending account
$40 Challenge
$20 Tuition fund
$20 Car fund
Not bad, I actually saved $260 out of my check and still have about $400 left after pain bills but it goes quickly. Oh I forgot I added the extra $10 saved on the satellite bill for referring my dad so I actually added $180 to EF saving a total of $270
Anyhow Tropical storm Fay just left Big Grin I am so glad that there was not much damage in our area. My sister lost power for a short while but it came back on. The winds were really picking up and it could have been worst but thank goodness it wasnt.


August 12th, 2008 at 07:37 pm

I received our electric bill today and it was $197 Frown and my mom had the nerve to say " did you see how much the electric bill was?" I was so annoyed. Because she is the one that falls asleep with the TV on, leaves everything plugged in and is here all day with the a/c on. But what can I do other than pay it
On a different note I had breakfast at home so $2 went towards the CC and then I had McDonald's for lunch so $3.31 went towards CC.
I tried hitting the beach but once again as soon as I pulled up the rain began shortly after
And last butnot least $3 went towards the challenge, earnings from a Pinecone survey


August 17th, 2007 at 06:21 pm

I went on a splurge today first with breakfast ($3.29) and then lunch ( I lost my receipt, about $10)
It all started when I was running late for work and left my breakfast; even though I had my lunch, my co-worker wanted and pleaded to go out to lunch but did not pay. But I got lucky and a patient gave me $10 today for lunch so that worked out.
Then I went to Blockbuster's and picked the Bourne series, since I saw the movie the other day ($25) so today was definately a spend day

Sticking to the calendar

December 31st, 2006 at 06:21 am

Ok I just finished up the dinner calendar for January and part of February, so when I hit the grocery store I will only buy what's for dinner. This should save me a ton on the grocery bill. I also decided to keep a price book of common items I buy at the grocery stores and do a price comparison with the sale items in Sunday's paper along with my coupon I should sve some money here. It's time consumming and when I lived on my own I use to do this I have no idea why I stopped my groery bill was 3x less than what I pay now
Anyhow I did the shopping for today's dinner which should last until Tuesday Smile and total was $36.22 that includes snack for work and breakfast so I made out ok

Paying bills

December 19th, 2006 at 09:27 pm

December a month for spending

December 13th, 2006 at 07:49 pm

It seems like I spend more in december than any other month every year. Spent a lot today, $40 at the hair salon, $8 lunch , $10 donation to my friend's daughter dance group and $59.76 to cc debt. Howver, I am a little upset because I added about 50 to the cc shopping for X-mas yesterday but tomorrow is payday from the part time job and we get our bonus on Friday I am hoping to pay it (cc) off.

No new shoes

December 11th, 2006 at 07:29 pm

I returned some shoes I purchased a couple of weeks ago because they started to tear. I have no idea as to why, I was a little upset because I really liked them but they no longer had my size. maybe it just wasn't suppose to be, then I ad to return some jeans because they were too small so I have a little more than $70 credited to my cc but I ended up using $20 of that to get some face powder which will last me at least two years
