You may remember a few months back when I acknowledged my spending habits were out of control. And I committed to making and keeping a budget. You can see where it all started here.
Here’s the thing, i did try. Not overly hard, but a great attempt…er, sort of.
I figured out a budget. Wrote it all down. Organized my bills. And came to the realization that I just don’t make enough money. Seriously. By the time I figured out all of my medical bills (which are finally paid off), house bills, car payment and daycare, I barely had money to purchase things like food, diapers, gas, etc.
I started to gamble. Ha, no I didn’t, but I thought about it. I did a little research on hot penny stocks and read up on some investors like timothysykes. Which looks like a great idea if I have spare change to invest!
I realized the best move for me to make is to *gulp* start job hunting. I make a significantly lower salary then I had when I lived in Des Moines, so I know I can do better. The thing is, I love my job. I love the people I work with. And I will not be able to get better benefits anywhere.
But, I took a plunge and updated the resume, so we will see where this takes me!
Someone send me the winning powerball numbers?
