Last month flew by! It was full of fun and care-free days, and I didn’t bother to glance at my goals. This seems to be something of a (bad) habbit!
We splurged on going out more than usual, I took a trip to wine country (San Louis Obispo), a trip home, and I bought make-up, hair cut, and clothes. I’m going to lose my pf blogger cred, but here is the gory details of how I pretended I don’t like saving for one month.
Make-up: $150. YES, really. I think it was the first make-up I bought this year (except a lipstick earlier this summer) and I don’t plan to buy any more. Except perhaps an eyelash curler. Which isn’t make-up, but a tool.
Clothes: $150. This includes $45 for alterations to my dress, a new work skirt, new black work shoes, and I think it includes a top that I’m going to return (unless they have a different size).
Restaurant: $100. We went out with friends a couple times… But still. This is much more than I expected, but $20 here and there adds up fast!
I’m going to work on remedying this one step at a time. Make-up is easy — I just won’t bother to buy any more until I use something up. I’m still glad I bought it. I’ve been wearing it every day and pretending I’m a grown up. Clothing is harder, but look for a plan coming up this weekend. Restaurants is an eternal struggle, but I’m going to start with one weekend. We will not go out to eat this weekend!
Oh, and my goals?! Failed them all I think. Except the one about making progress on the wedding. I think we made a little bit of progress. But I need to address the overall lack of follow through on my goals. If I don’t really mean them, why do I write them? If I do really mean them, why don’t I meet them?
