April Budget, a Motto, and a Loveseat Hunt
Well here it is April 10th, payday, and the start of a new budget month. March was a bad month budget-wise, I went on a spending spree and bought some new clothes and I can't remember what else and we ended up $163 over for the month. Both of my experiments for the month failed as well which sucks! This month is not looking much better as the car went in today for its 40k service, which I'll have to charge for now and make an extra credit card payment at the end of the month.
This month I'm trying something different, I'm going to have a motto and start a savings goal. Motto: "No Pizza Until May 10th" and the goal is to save up for a new loveseat/armchair. Ours is a one-armed loveseat 80's reject that has lost all its cushioning powers. I saw a really cool oversized armchair (fits 2 people) on JC Penney's website that is also a twin-size sleeper. Its on sale for $499, but we want to save up at least $600 in case this is no longer available when we're ready to buy. The oversized armchair will work really well for us because we are limited space-wise. We can't go any longer than 65" because our tv/computer/cat room is a tiny converted bedroom with no room to swing a cat, not that he would let me. mmm pizza, I'm hungry gotta go.
