First No-Spend Day In Awhile

As the title reads, today is the first no-spend day I’ve had in awhile. It’s about darn time! I always end up spending money (usually way too much) when I’m with family or friends. Peer pressure is not a friend of mine! This is why sometimes I’m glad I have a part-time job. As long as I’m working 7 days a week it’s makes it more difficult for me to go out & spend. Once I’m done working all I really want to do is go home, watch TV, or lay down. Although, working at a convience store has it’s downfalls too. I LOVE food. Not sure if I’ve mentioned that before, but I do! And of course, convience stores have lots of junk food. Plus, I work mornings there & I’m not a morning person so I usually end up buying something to eat for breakfast.

I only plan on keeping my part-time job until the end of October at the very latest. Once November comes & it gets closer to the end of the year & the beginning of the new year, that’s when things kick into overdrive at my full-time job. Last year there were plenty of opportunities to work overtime & that should sustain me through the winter. Plus, I’d rather not drive 7 days a week in the winter time. MidWest winters are not good ones by any means. They’ve been getting progressively worse the last few years & the less I’m actually on the road, the better. Plus, it makes more sense to work overtime at the full-time job that pays higher then to keep a part-time job that pays less.

I’m still waiting on my rebates from recycling my cell phone & laptop. They say it takes 4-8 weeks to send the gift cards. They estimate I’ll receive the cell phone rebate in the 2nd week of Sept. The laptop rebate isn’t supposed to show up until the middle of October. Patience is something I’ve never been very good at.

One last thought – Everyone please pray that I get the new position I posted for at work. It pays quite a bit more than what I make now.
