I’d like to say it’s because I’m uber rich and don’t have to worry about money. Sort of the case but not really. I got a raise in the beginning of the year and then I got a new position/promotion at work which added to my salary. All of my bills are automatically withdrawn so my “budget” is based off of the money I was making prior to my two salary increases. So…I usually have a few hundred dollars to buffer my spending. I suppose it’s the lazy budget but since I haven’t increased my expenses I always have something left over each month.

Today I went through 7 years of paper, bills, and various paper crap I’ve saved for no real good reason other than to take up space in my filing cabinet. It looks like Xmas with all the shredded paper I have I could start packing presents early this year. Anytime I get a statement in the mail I make a point to switch it to email only. Usually the turn around time is pretty quick if I get on it right away and I wont see another paper statement again. Somehow my mother’s name is floating about still and I’ve recently been getting mail for her although she’s been dead since 98. I suppose I should get her off of whatever mailing lists she’s on. Will it ever end…? It’s definitely better.
3-4 months ago I got a gym membership @ pure fitness. Then a couple weeks after that I got another membership at Meikos (thanks to the big fat family & corp. discount I only have to pay $15 a month) and now can work out with my family and a coworker.
Initially I was doing pretty good. Going almost everyday. Lately I go about 2-3 times a week. This certainly isn’t a bad thing since I haven’t worked out in years. I have noticed increased energy since I’ve been working out and always surprise myself when I look at the distance run and see 2 or 3 miles. It’s interesting how my body seemed to instantly adapt to working out.
I need a workout buddy though. It’s hard to always be the one to motivate myself
