Breaking the bank!

Breaking the bank!

So this month all my bills really came to slap me hard in the face!

Not realizing that 90% of my bills were due in the same week about shit my pants knowing that I would be broke until my next paycheck. I managed to work it out and move some due dates around so hopefully next month won’t be quite as hectic.

If I have learned one thing since living here it’s this

 

  1. HAVING FRIENDS VISIT EVERY WEEKEND IS A BLAST!

  2. HAVING FRIENDS VISIT EVERY WEEKEND IS BREAKING MY BANK!

I have come to the harsh realization that as much as I enjoy having someone in town to go have fun with every weekend – it is NOT reality! I live here now, it is not my “vacation”… I have not saved up money just for this specific “weekend in Vegas.” It is going to lead to me telling visitors that I can’t come spend $20 bucks a drink with them out at the club on the strip, that as much as I’d like to try that yummy expensive restaurant.. I really can’t afford it.. and that until I get my local ID – I am not paying a cover to get into a bar!

I understand there are certain friends and family that will come into town that I will make sure to set aside some extra $$ to go out and party it up with – but unfortunately for some of you.. I’ll just have to say NO!

(Like an adult) I have put together a budget tracker so that I know EXACTLY what my bills are every month and EXACTLY how much spending money I have – the life of a responsible adult can suck at times financially.. but I just keep telling myself it will all work out in the end and I WILL get myself int a financial position that I don’t feel so strapped.

Until then – please don’t get your panties in a twist if you come to visit and I don’t come out and spend a shit ton of money with you. Thanks in advance 😉

Sigh..
