I’m spending less money. Now it’s time to take it to the next level. Living frugally.

I really hate going to work. I’m thankful to have a job but I don’t like being there. Every time I’m about to spend money I think about how much longer I’ll have to work if I spend it. It’s an effective deterrent.
It’s not helping that I’m moving to a more expensive apartment. I didn’t want to but I couldn’t take the heat in my studio anymore. I work 40 hours a week to pay for it but I can’t even enjoy it when I’m home because it’s too dang hot.
Really fell down on this goal last paycheck. Tightening belt and trying again. Things will be very tight this time. There is absolutely no room to waste any money. What set me off last time? Boredom. It’s killer on my bank account.
Wow. I spent way too much money this paycheck. I couldn’t shake temptation and splurged on some things I really shouldn’t have. I’m very close to going over budget. This is going to hurt me for the next 2 weeks or so. Ouch.
I just switched to DSL and canceled my Cable internet. Youtube videos lag sometimes but it works perfectly for surfing the net. The only reason I REALLY need the internet is for email so this should serve me just fine. This will save me good money in the long run.
I did a few things this week to spend less money. I cut my dryer sheets in half, diluted the laundry detergent, and stopped myself from making an impulse purchase. I actually had an inner battle over that purchase and finally my frugal side won. That was so hard! Gah!! I told myself I can buy it for my birthday. I need to learn how to wait.
Struggling a little bit…I’ve been spending more than I should but I’m still staying within my budget. I just feel really guilty now when I spend on anything other than food and bills. I know I just need more time and I can do better than this.
I just bought something on a whim today now I regret it. I’m taking it back tomorrow! I need to stop bleeding money.
Spent a little more than I wanted this paycheck but I should be okay as long as I stick to the necessities for the next 2 weeks.
