Clearly, I needed a break from blogging. Things have been crazy in my life. I ran a second half marathon last weekend, went to a college football game the weekend before that, and finished up a huge project at work. I’ve still got a lot going on this month, but I feel a little more in control thanks to a weekend to myself where I just worked through my list of tasks.
This month is a three paycheck month, and I’m definitely glad for it. I always bank at least 2/3rds of the third paycheck, but put some towards those expense categories that are languishing. Right now, that’s things like clothing and gifts. I have been doing a lot of purging and cleaning out my closets and drawers and I’m realizing that I need to replenish my wardrobe. I hate shopping, and that’s a big part of the problem. I find a few things I like, and I wear them and wear them and wear them, and then they wear out and I have to buy new clothing. That’s where I’m at right now. I just haven’t gotten a chance to go to the store. I’m hard to fit, so while I can buy some things online, a lot of times, I just have to go try things on. I’m hoping to be able to do that next weekend.
I’m also hoping to get back to blogging, at least three times a week. It’s weird, but talking about money helps me manage my money. I’ve been so overwhelmed that I missed net worth updates for the past two months! Here’s to catching up at the end of the month.
