One Month Challenge: Learning to Budget, Week 4

I did it. I budgeted. And I learned a lot about myself and my spending habits in the process. It was sometimes difficult, but definitely worth it. Looking back at the experience as a whole I can definitely say that. So instead of recapping this last week for you (which was actually kind of boring) I thought I’d take some time to just go over the finer points and the important things I picked up this month.

One Month Challenge: Learn to Budget, Week 3

It was just a slight slip up. I was on my way to CVS when I passed one of my favorite stores with a big, huge, sale sign in the window. I had some time to kill, so I figured, why not? I’ll just browse. And then I got to the coat section. There it was: a belted, black, mid length coat. On sale. And it was just my size. I tried it on, and yes, I bought it.

One Month Challenge: Learn to Budget, Week 2

I've even been keeping track of my purchases, but the thing is, since it's winter break post-holidays and high school reunions, I've spent pretty much this entire week watching Netflix, reading The Hunger Games, and sleeping until noon. So I haven't actually been spending all that much. And it's made for a pretty easy week.

Web Spy: Clockblock

I have a confession: I'm sort of obsessed with lists. Whether it's a shopping list, top 10 list or to-do list, organizing the things in my life into lists keeps me sane. But making lists really helps me out: I find if I don't write out everything I have to do (errands, school work, chores at home, etc.), I'll forget. I've recently discovered a new way to help me organize all the things on my to-do list: Clockblock.

One Month Challenge: Learn to Budget, Week 1

This month I am taking control of my finances. And if you're up for it, I want you to join me. Because whether you're in a position that requires you to keep track of your finances or not, it won't hurt to know how and why you're spending your money.

The Weekly Ten: New Year's Resolutions You Can Keep

It’s a new year, and you know what that means; it’s time to start working on those New Year’s resolutions. But before you start jotting down those promises take a minute and really think about this. New Year’s resolutions almost always involve giving something up, and making sacrifices. And that negative approach makes you all the less likely to keep them.

Web Spy: Evernote

My desk is cluttered with post-it notes of things I don't want to forget about, magazine clippings, receipts, class notes, and more. The mess, plus being occasionally scatter-brained, drives me crazy and sometimes even causes me to forget about important events or due dates. I used to try to figure how I could keep it all organized in a way that would make it all easy to access and find what I need--but now Evernote does all that for me!
