Archive for the ‘Spendings’ Category

What I am have (** why is it that as I am writing the sentences, I am saying it in my head in grammatically correct terms, but it comes out all wrong in the end?) noticed in my daily tracking of spendings is that routine helps. I had been doing so well the 1st half of the month. I was bringing my lunch everyday, I always had leftover or quick food in my fridge, as a result of which, my spendings went down. Well fast forward to a few days later, when midterm, due date for projects and too much to do at work all hit at the same time, I had no time to cook, shop or bring my own lunch. I also had to pay extra for doggie walker to come walk my dog because I would not be going home early due to several meetings with classmates to work on our project.

Well now, I am sitting here looking at my money situation and it’s not looking very good. BF is visiting this weekend from out of town. I would like to keep my spendings to the minimalest possible. However, I am looking at my grocery budget and I have mere $30 left in it!! It’s very important that I stock up my fridge because we have a tendency to eat out a lot when together. I am trying to avoid that at all cost this time around. I have a spend money set aside of $100. I might have to dip into that to cover the food cost. I was planning to buy some wall frames at the new Ikea to hang some pictures on my hallway, which now might just have to wait.

On yet another bad money news, I received the cheque from my old 401K people to rollover to the new one. Need I say anymore? I feel like the timing could not have been worse. I had to roll it over possibly at the worst time possible. Very depressing!

So Ashamed

That’s right. Because I have been on a shopping spree like it’s going out of style. I bought some nice things for myself. Unnecessary, but nice. Okay, fine it’s a handbag. It was on 50% off from a nice brand. It’s nice and shiny and so cute! It will go with everything I have. And what did they say about having nice bags? That you only need one? Or a few? I will not be buying one for a long long time now. I had been eying it for a year! A year! And, that was not enough! I walked into Bed Bath and Beyond. You know the rest. It’s impossible to walk out of that store without spending loads of money.

Yup. Very exciting, isn’t it? I just paid $264 on a vet bill for my dog. He got his yearly shots and on top of that he had to get his blood works done because he has to go into surgery to remove growth from his eyelid because it’s pushing into this cornea. I really hope his insurance will cover most of it, and not try and give me a hard time about it saying it’s cosmetic and not necessary. I am going to take some picture of it before it gets removed just to make sure that I have a picture of it and shows how its pushing into his eyes. Poor boy is going to have to wear a cone around his head for 10-12 days, which he’s never had to do until today. I wonder how he’s going to take it.

I’m scared silly of dentists. This is why when today I grudgingly went to see the dentist, it was 3 years after my last dentist visit. Yup, that’s right Three Whole Years! Apparently my gums are receding and apparently if I didn’t take care of them right away, I might have to face root canal in the future!! And because my work gives me crappy dental plan that only covers $1500 a year and pays only 80% of the cost, I had to fork out $300 out of my own pockets. Yup, I paid to be tortured which involved two people holding me down and prying open my mouth and sticking all sorts of contraptions inside it and scraping things that should not be scraped with all sorts of gadgets. I wanted to gouge out their eyes instead with them so badly , but I was helpless and held down. And I had to pay for it.

Arrrrgggh.
