Friday!!Posted: January 20, 2012
Ugh, I’m so glad it is Friday. I love my work but I’m coming down with a cold. Thankfully I’m healthy enough that I can work through it—I’m able to move around and it doesn’t pain me too much. I’m excited for this upcoming budget though! Well, maybe. I think that as I get paid next week, that this week is on my next paycheck. Which doesn’t matter except for the fact that my guy will also be getting paid ( I think anyways) from this job and he should have a paycheck from his previous job. I think anyways. I don’t remember how either place does their weeks—I’ll just have to wait and see.
Either way, I’m excited. I’m pretty sure that we aren’t planning to spend much more money this time—maybe buy some milk but I can’t think of anything else. I know how much money we have to “spare” right now but I’m trying not to think too much about that. I don’t want to jinx anything—we still have a week to get through. Something I can pretty much count on though is that I will be getting a vacuum by next weekend! I’ve been saving for three or four paychecks now for this. I’m pretty excited about this. I’m not getting a expensive one—just one without bags and that will clean my floors a little better than the Shark we’ve been using. That will be the first thing off of my new “house items I need or want” list. I’m pretty happy about this. I think it makes it better that I’ve saved up for it and am not just randomly buying it.
Do you feel good about purchases you save for rather than instant gratification? I used to be big into instantly getting my reward but now I like it better when I know I’m not further in debt because I saved!
