I am SUPER proud of myself for the consolidated trips that happened today!  And I have to brag on my thrift scores--for $15, I got a sheet set that I'm making into curtains for my classroom, 2 Hanna Andersson shirts, 2 HA skirts, and 2 pairs of HA pants.  Holy insane deal!!

September 9: uhoh3.gif Dodged a bullet today!  My hubby's van had a dead battery this morning.  Luckily we were able to successfully jump it. (Last time we were not. DD2 turns the dome light on after she's released from her carseat.)  I had to get gas today, and I bought a pop at the gas station.  Hubby had to get one more grocery item, and took DD1 out for a milkshake after her first day of kindergarten.  But, my mom also paid him today for some projects that he did for my folks.  It was wild and weird around here today (in ways that have nothing to do with $) and I need a normal day tomorrow!

Everything is breaking!  The dehumidifier seems to be acting up, the fan in my car (for the air) died (quite melodramatically, if you ask me).  Thankfully we found the expensive flashlight and headlamp we misplaced after camping.  We use those every evening in the fall/winter to shut the chickens in, etc. as it's nearly pitch black where we live.

Hanging tight here.  I have lots of little :innocent guys, but I am sticking to my budget like glue.  Rather than doing one big grocery trip a week, I have been making smaller trips and picking up things as we need them.  It is easy enough to make quick stops when I am out riding around on my bike, so no extra gas being burned.  As a plus, we are making better use of our food and have nothing going to waste.  

 

And I think I might return the pants I bought.  They are nice, but I don't really need them and I have other pants I can wear for exercise.

ETA: I need to stop posting early in the day.  I keep changing what I'm doing.  Today I finally bought dd2 a new pillow from my friend's organic bedding company.  I've been promising her a full size pillow for 2 years now (she almost 7) but she usually doesn't sleep with the pillow, so I haven't felt too bad about not prioritizing it.  However, this year, it finally made it to the top of the list.  Also paid library fines, but I've resigned myself to the inevitability of fines with the way we use the library so much, so I count it as a semi-yearly donation instead of a bad thing!

I'm going to hop on here. I'm unemployed and going to school. I've been out of work for about 12 weeks and we've been living on our savings, my severance, and my student loans. I should start getting unemployment next week or the week after. We've burned through way more of our savings then we should have in that time period because we just haven't adjusted to our new income situation like we should. I have a budget and we should be fine, but the key is sticking to it.

 

So here are our goals for sticking to the budget:

 

Only 1 shopping trip a week. With list in hand.

Limit unnecessary trips out of town.

Get my husband to remember to take lunch and cut out the fast food (bonus - it will be good for his waist line).

 

This month is going to be especially tough and we'll still be dipping into savings. But if all goes according to plan we'll be putting money back into savings starting next month. I'm hoping to pick up some substitute teaching to supplement my unemployment. Though that will be difficult since it effects your unemployment amount the week you work, not the week you get paid, and our local school districts only pay once a month. So it could be 1 1/2 months sometimes before I get paid for the work I did, yet would reduce my unemployment amount in the meantime. But since I'm in school for education I want to sub so I can get a feel for some of the local schools I'll be applying for next school year at. I'll of course also still be looking for full time work.

Sorry I've been slack with recording and coming here. DH has been home and just left out again Thursday so it's always nuts when he's here! We did pretty bad while he was home mostly due to being sick and feeling poorly. Things are better on track again now and I hope to do well for the rest of the month. I do have some spending coming but I'm working hard on our budget and prioritizing before I spend for those purchases.

Today may turn into a spending day, too.  I forgot to pick up snacks for my class yesterday and I want to put gas in my car so that I don't need to do it during the week.  Hopefully that will mean no spending during the week this week!  I am also at some point getting a refund for my parents' birthday presents--I was going to take them to see music at Planet Bluegrass in Lyons, but it's under 5 feet of water :(  Hoping they move the show elsewhere, but for now, all shows there are cancelled.  If it's totally cancelled, I'll have to figure out another birthday present for them.  This flooding is nuts....so sad for so many people I know.

Craziness.  Hope you get your refund.
