budge it

Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2004
How voyeuristic can you get? Take a look at my checkbook balance/budget minus the deposits….I spend tooooo much money on books, coffee and going out to eat. Ohhh but I’m barely ever home so my living expenses are cheap cheap. And notice no car payment…..zip zilch…at least not yet... Incidentally for those that might think my rent is cheap...yah it's not so bad, but I also live 5 minutes from St. Pete beach in a very decent part of town very close to TWO bookstores....right around the corner from where millions vacation yearly. I'm a lucky girl...truly lucky. A lot of my "out to eat" involves my son and/or my fiancé and he does his share of paying too. It also includes lunches between jobs. Notice...I do not have a home phone nor do I have cable TV. What for? I'm never home. :-)My list of cash withdrawals is scary...I have no idea what I spent that money on except that I probably paid some sort of incidental bills somewhere along the way. This examination of my finances makes me want to write down every dime I spend and on what like a OCD freak.
