First off, I feel awful that it's been a full week since my last post. So many times I sat down in front of my laptop, determined to write a post, and each time there was something to distract me. A hungry kid, a phone call and sometimes a television show. Today I thought I'd write my post before I started my day at work. I checked my calendar and it looks like I'm in meetings from 9-3:30pm. Straight, without any breaks. My hope is that each meeting will end early and I'll have time to check emails and voice messages, and go for bio breaks.
It's been a fairly good week financially. No extra spending on my end and eBay sales last week were very good. We sold a total of 11 items (all clothing) for approx $430. Of course I need to deduct the eBay fee as well as the PayPal fee. It's still money in our savings account. DH wants to purchase a new sweater with the money made from his clothing sales. He told me last night, his intentions of selling on eBay were so that he could buy himself a new sweater, whereas my intentions are to put money into our savings account and be more prepared for Christmas shopping this year. I'm a little frustrated that he wants to spend rather than save, but we never agreed that we would both put our money made into savings. And that's ok. I have no energy to try and convince him to see things my way. I just need to continue down my journey to save money and pay down our debt.
This post is a bit on the short side, but I do hope to update again. I need to update some numbers. I'm just happy that I'm on top of things financially (for the most part).
