I am still here just busy

June 13th, 2005 at 03:58 am

Hi everyone, thought I would just pop in and say hi.
Don't know what happens to the time - I have been busy busy busy. Have had a couple more no spend days but will have to check my diary to see how many.
I think this battle out of debt is something that definitely requires constant attention and daily journaling - I know, that even though I haven't spent much since my last entry it is not "top of mind" if I don't journal everyday.
Really trying to work hard to get that bonus at the end of the month - still looking like it is out of reach but will keep trying.
Will update later

No Spending Days

June 7th, 2005 at 10:44 am

Hi everyone - I can't believe it - I have had 4 no spending days already this month (my goal is 20).
This past weekend we had a school fete - which turned out to be rather expensive for mom's purse - I must admit I let my daughter spend more than usual - but she had a wonderful day Cheeky Smiley 004
Got more sewing orders should make another $75 - although it is not a large amount it is amazing how quickly it all adds up.
Still working really hard to earn my bonus at the end of June - although it looks really impossible I am NOT giving up Grinning Smiley 003: Watch this space.
Still looking at my budget to see where we can save money - it really is an ongoing challenge. Today I ran out of butter, yoghurt and eggs and even though I tried not to go to the shops, I had to relent - trying to find something that looks like an egg, tastes like an egg but is not an egg is really stretching this "debt freedom" thing Laughing Smiley 003:
Sold the car seat for $55 but the PDA has not been sold - think I may have priced it too high. Think I will just take it to a second hand shop and take what I can get for it.
The other old car seat had a cover that was revolting so I made a new one and am hoping that that will sell tomorrow.
Tomorrow I am going for No Spend day 5 - so I think that I am going to stay in my home office and just focus on getting some more business.
Have fun everyone

Lost Track of Spending

June 3rd, 2005 at 09:37 am

Whoa - somehow I got lost along the way this week - last time I looked it was Monday now it is Friday - what happened. The time just flies.
Spent this week ????
No spend days: 3 days - now that is a miracle BUT we made up for it big time today Embarrassment
I had a marathon dentist appointment today - $125 later, then my DD got sick last night - $25 for the Doctor and $75 for antibiotics, cough stuff and painkiller. Arrrg Speechless Smiley 03917: - when does it end. So much for have a great no spend month - Huh
Got an order today - nice boost to my sales this month.
Oh, my DD put on some new winter clothes today (I made them about 4 weeks ago) and guess what she has grown again Confused Smiley 013: - how does that happen. So now I start all over again - maybe I will be make the clothes even bigger. It seems everytime I turn around she has grown another 2 inches. Who else has that problem. I told her I was going to put 18 bricks on her head to stop it. She just smiled sweetly.
I treated her with McDonalds tonight Smilie Fluester I didn't feel like cooking and she needed the treat. Spent $6
Need to check my budget tomorrow and see what is left (if anything - oh well..........) at least we are all trying.
Take care
