First Step is Admitting You Have a Problem, Right?

February 7th, 2013 at 08:41 pm

I mentioned in a previous entry that I had an addiction to body products. Well, I thought it would be fun to show you my collection. I shouldn't call it collection really, I should really call it a hoarding stash! I'm not exactly sure when I started this thing about buying multiples of items, or new items before finishing the current item I'm using. My roommate makes fun of me, and tells me that I can probably take 2 showers daily for an entire year and still not have to buy anything new. In fact, I should probably be in the shower right now. lol.

Anyways, I have now put myself on a buying ban until I use up all of this, in their respective categories of course. I am planning on updating at the beginning of each month with a new picture so that you all can see my progress. Also so I can hold myself accountable.

****Picture Notes Left to Right****
Conditioners, Shampoos, Body Scrubs, Body Washes, and everything to the right of the body washes in the plastic baggies are my LUSH bar soaps and Bath Bombs/Bubble Bars.

Preparing for Not-So-Good News

February 5th, 2013 at 10:17 pm

Just when I was just getting back into the groove of things and getting settled, I get some not-so-good news at work. They are doing another layoff. This time the corporate office is affected... and so therefore my job may be on the line. I was some what assured that I was going to be fine, but I can't help but think in the back of my mind... be prepared for the worst. The layoff will probably happen before the end of the month, probably before the next pay period actually. Meaning before 15th. So, if I can get past that point with my job still in tacked I can breathe a little easier. The company has decided to axe half the accounting staff so they can add more sales reps. We are already working on a bare bone accounting staff... so we shall see how this layoff changes up things.

Anyways, so me being a worrier. I have decided that I need to conserve as much cash as possible this month. Meaning, I might not be able to pay extra to my credit card this month. This really stinks, but I figure I need to make sure I have cash, so I can continue to make payments after if I end up in the group that is cut. I was already tightening the belt, but now I have to tighten it up some more.

And then... my landlord called me up tonight asking about my rent check for February. I'm really really good about mailing my rent check every month. I didn't forget, the mailman just failed to deliver it, considering I mailed my February check on the 30th of January. My landlord just lives in the next city over... 2 days max. In fact, 1 day max. So, I told him that I would get a new check to him tomorrow. I had to stop payment on the other check and pay $30.00 for a stop payment fee.

So February has seem to get off on the wrong foot. Going to work through it!
