Ticked off at myself.

For some odd reason I am in a spending mood. I think I am relapsing. Help me Frown
OK, so I complained last week about buying that new watch when I didn't need it- now I want to go back to the watch store and buy this other watch that I liked as well. I'm fighting it big time, and I think I will make it through. I just needed to vent.

-I've been good and bad this pay period with the money. I usually go to the salon every 2-3 weeks for a deep conditioning treatment, and every other month I get a full $80 wash, condition, and perm. I know its a lot of $, but I have very thick hair that can't be tamed unless a stylist does it. I can't do it justice. This time, I opted to wash it and flat iron it myself. It's ok, but I am far from excited about it. It's not as straight as when stylist does it, but I'll live with it for another week.

-I also have blown the entire budget for this pay period. I don't know where the money went. I plan to spend a certain amount after all of the fixed bulls are paid. Whatever extra is left in the account come next pay check, gets thrown into savings. Well, I find myself with $3 spend money left, and having to grab money from the "leftover cash" until next Friday, which is payday. I am so dissapointed in myself, and I need to step it up big time.

Sorry for the long note, I just needed to let it out. Hope everyone has a nice Memorial weekend.

Just finished watching, "Kobe doin' work". It was a good presentation. Kobe's a great ball player...on a financial note, I haven't contacted Walmart yet to see if my medication is on a list, but I will get to it tomorrow. I spent $12.84 at Publix today, but it came out of my grocery envelope, so I'm doing well with the budget.

For the past 6 months I've been using the envelope system. I like it, but I don't I think I'm going to start using my credit cards to pay for the most of my budgeted items, and then pay off the card in full. That way I can keep building my credit score up (hopefully it goes up).

I had to file a dispute claim with bank of America today. I bought an item off of ebay last month, and never got the item. The $$ transaction went through, but the seller ignored my emails to him. I was pissed, but B.o.A advised that they would send me a form to fill out inorder to start the claim, and hopefully I'll get my money back. It's only a whoppin total of &5.98, but it was mine- and I want it back! We'll see how the claim goes. Good night all Smile
