Goal #2

(an explanation for this page is found at the bottom of the page)

January 4, 2011
  • Booked another tutoring session for this coming Saturday which = another $50 to add to the funds. This however does not extend my funds, because I did a miscalculation before. Now I will be where I thought I was going to be. Definitely a boo situation.

  • Budgeted to use only Tutoring money as spending money for the next 10 weeks. (Will make at least $725 in tutoring funds - and plan on spending only $70 a week)
  • I know that  $70 a week seems low, but I don't have any bills or expenses really. I will pay for my monthly loan repayments and cellphone bill from my pay cheque - but other than that, it will all go into my savings. I hope to save up an additional $1500 by doing this!
  • It's monday and I have already blown through $55 worth of my budget. HA! That being said, I am quite pleased with my purchases. I bought a few items for my etsy shop, new clothes (but not new - they were thrift store finds - 8 garments, 2 belts and 2 shoes for $29) and some groceries for dinner. It was a successful shopping adventure, but needless to say, I am going to have to tighten up those purse strings until Thursday.

  • Earned $25 from tutoring; have arranged a second session for tomorrow
  • spent $20 in gas (boo! $1.10/litre kind of sucks...a lot)
  • borrowed a cookbook from a friend - saved money, and got lot's of good ideas!

  •  Chose not to go shopping today and saved $101.68 from not purchasing the contents of my cart in Aldo and the Gap (online shopping is the devil!)
 
One of the major goals that I would like to achieve for 2011 is to move out of my parent's home by September 2011. It is getting a bit too cramped in herr. 

The purpose of this page is to keep myself accountable and serve as a daily log of what steps I am taking to get myself out!
