I'm very proud of myself :)
I ran out to the dollar store today to buy some decorations for my admin assistant (her birthday is on Monday and she is fantastic). The dollar store is at the mall. There was a store liquidating a lof of products (home decoration type store). I had stopped by there before and saw a small side table that I would have loved for my guest room (all that I have in there right now is a bed). I am actively working on trying to make my house a home because I think that is a lot of my mental health issues. Well the table was marked down and I was thisclose to buying it.
But then I stopped myself. It wasn't in my budget and not having a night table isn't going to kill my guests (mainly my sister and best friend when they come into town). So I left the table at the store and still have all my cash.
I am back to a cash budget. This week is going to be tight as it is because of the bathc cooking I am planning with my mom
