|Just stop shopping, Dumbass|
Coming right on the heels of my car insurance payment, I had to get BF an x-mas gift. After that, I realized that since my brother is coming out to visit, I should get him one too. Then I found another something awesome for one of my best friends, then because I was being so virtuous and giving, I bought myself a dress. It's like I need a sponsor to call when I feel like I'm going to spend! Also, I bought running shoes, but I honestly did need those and saved about 100 dollars.
So that's why things have been a bit quiet on the old blogfront--I've been too busy ordering things. In the back of my mind, I'm honestly hoping that the dress I ordered doesn't look good so I can return it, so I guess that's positive?
Starting December 20th, I'm off for six weeks from job number 2, so I need to keep that in the back of my mind. With only one job, that means no extra income, just breaking even. I have a car tax bill looming--mustn't forget. And I made a decision that will give me a goal to focus on so I (hopefully) won't be distracted by other shiny things in the meantime.
All of the cool runners have started getting these Garmin GPS running watches. Initially I scoffed because it's clunky and expensive and seems like a laughable luxury item.

Yeah, that's a stretch, but I'm just going to save up the points I earn on my Amazon Visa card, and also the change that I save to bring to the Coinstar machine, which gives me an Amazon Gift Certificate (or just gives me cash, but then the machine takes a percentage). Hopefully, this savings goal will occupy my fickle brain enough that I'll stop yearning for other things. Hopefully.
