My Financial Oath to Myself

November 29th, 2006 at 06:51 am

*Get myself out of the Financial Blunder I had put myself in.

*Pay off my Parents in 4 weeks because they helped me get my all weather tires.

*Pay off my CC again.

*Pay ALL my Bills before anything else.

*The BIGGEST OATH OF ALL is do not sign the list to go home early anymore.

Still not better, improving Slowly.

Sloppy with Finances

Its really BAD LIKE BAD! EEK!

I know, get my Finances in order and keep track of my spending...I am so BAD EEK!

I think I have a problem when I go Grocery Shopping, these last few weeks I have going over my Budget and buying things I don't need. I don't know why I do that. Am I worried I am going to run out of Food or what? Confused

Anyway, after everything that goes through that is supposed to go through I am going to get back on track. REALLY WORRIED about going in the RED.
