From 2009-2012 I paid off 28,000 of my own debt. During that time I moved from Long Beach back to Whittier, met the man who is now my husband, and learned tons about how to manage my money. I'm back to blogging now that I'm married and my husband and I work to pay off his student loans. We're adding a baby to the mix this year, to keep things interesting. I don't own a home (and I'm just past 30) but I've come a long way on my financial journey!
1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on rent. But other than that, my extra payment to my car! :)
2. Today I feel bueno towards money. My grocery spending for the month is high already, but my eating out budget only has three bucks spent so far, so I guess that's a good trade off.
3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was learn how to do digital animation at a class that only cost $15. I have one more next weekend...I'll post my video on the blog when it's done.
4. I will consider this week a success if I get the kids' figurative language projects graded and returned...they're turning in essays on Friday, so I want the projects off of my desk.
