This month I spent $1,579.43, made $47.29, and got a $1500 refund. (Technically I have another paycheck from the 29th, but since I didn’t have direct deposit set up yet, I haven’t gotten it.)

Savings is at $1500. CC balances are at $1,738.25. Available credit is around $1900. IRA balance (reserve) is around $800.
I’m trying to decide if I should transfer the ~$200 off a store card and onto one of my other cards, because the interest rate is way higher. On the other hand, I can use my other card for other stuff, and I may need it.
Those running shoes really hurt, but so did my knees & shins. I’d been using barefoot shoes, but I was running on surfaces made for running then, and now where I live, everything is paved.
No more clothes thankfully, unless I get an office job and need a few more things for that. If I get a job though, that doesn’t count.
Probably going to drop a lot of money on housing applications over the next couple of weeks, and then on a deposit of course.
It looks like my bike is only going to need one more $30 part, which is sweet. So I’ll have paid all of $30 for this bike, my second free bike from my roommates. They’re the best.
My rent will almost certainly be going up after I move, or at least the utilities will (everything’s included right now). I’m aiming for $500-$600, since that’s all I make at my current job. 3 weeks ago
