Finally reviewed the numbers for January, and I spent way too much money. I have got to cut back with the upcoming move.
Here it is:

This is it in a nutshell, unfortunately my contract with At&t won't expire until next year; however, I know once I move the electric and cable bill will go down at least by half. Also most of my health care spending was actually refunded to me from my employer so that was a plus.

Actually after reviewing the numbers, my dollar amounts when it comes to spending (i.e. dining out, clothes) is much less than previous months prior to me returning to the blogs and since my mother isn't talking to me I've definitely saved some money

    Have you ever looked into getting a Diva Cup? The initial outlay would be about 3 months worth, but then no more for up to ten years. Smile

    I looked into it but to be honest, I was a little afraid

    It takes a little getting used to, but is SO worth it ( not just $ wise) Smile

    Thanks, I think I'll talk to my doctor about it, someone else told me the same thing
