hello!! it always happens-around this time of year-i get spend happy. And i end up broke! i havent done any frugal things in the last month...(my normal grocery shopping doesnt really count, even though im pretty good about geting things on sale and such)in fact, i havent done anything frugal in awhile. im forever making payment arrangements and it never seems like enough. i just had a nice ot check-and it all went toward rent. talk about a downer. i borrowed money from a friend of mine and paid her back-but im still left without anything substantial to show for it. im a lil down about this-i hate having no money...and making payment arrangements...and all that. :P sorry-just had to vent...im so sick of being broke!!

Cheer up! One good thing is that you had an OT check! When I have had to use any "extra" money that goes toward something that needs to be paid, I am grateful to have the money. Otherwise, I would be sick with worry. Follow Dave Ramsey's advice to plan out your money before you spend it. Use the envelope system. You should never have the overspending problem again.

Ok, you overspent. Now get on with life girly.

I'm sorry. I think we are all burnt out a bi and tired, but we just have to keep on trying.

Glad that you didn't have to go into debt to pay rent...you had the money!
