To Save $100. It is really difficult this month with all the Christmas shopping and all but I want to have something for December. I get paid weekly. I'll let you know by the end of the month. If I could do more I will.

This year I decided to get everyone big gifts this year since I can since I am living at home. I have been buying one gift a week since I get paid every week.
Daughter - DS Lite $129 *Bought
Parents - Guitar Hero Beatles (splitting cost with siblings) $67.00-$100 *Buying Dec 12th
Brother - Laptop (buying from parents) $200 *buying Dec 19th
Sister - Sony Cybershot $119 *Buying Saturday Dec 5th
Daddy - Care Package $? (after Christmas)
I REALLY also want to get everyone Gift Cards since I LOVE Gift Cards (giving and receiving them) but I may not if I cannot afford to.
The ONLY thing I want for Christmas is my dog I got from my hairstylist friend...my parents let me take my cat and she sleeps in the basement with us but my ex took our dog even though the dog claimed me and the cat claimed my ex. I also had another bad situation where when I was first married and lived in Mexico I had to leave my dog there also...so its VERY sentimental I get this dog ...My parents already have two dogs and three cats of their own...but they let me bring my cat and I take care of her here in my basement...my mom also loves that I love taking care of their dogs...the reason why is my dad thinks they already have too many animals here LOL..which is understandable LOL but it would be in the basement with me till I move out like my cat. So please HOPE I get the dog for Christmas!
Pay off my Debt (haven't
Savings & Emergency Fund (Have none
Make Money (Jewelry Parties - Goal 2 a week)
I no longer have a partner, she left me in July 2009 and I had to move back home till March 2010. So its just me and my daughter again.
I already found an apartment I will be moving to (1 bedroom): $688 a month (includes water, cat)
After school care for my daughter $185
My Cell ATT $110
Credit Card $50
Goal for Groceries $40 a week for two (will coupon & stockpile)
Beauty $110 (nails, hair, tanning - I am a new high maintenance woman but I get my nails done at Walmart and my friend does my hair)
No car payment
Car insurance cut from paycheck
Comcast Internet & Cable $130 (I think it was)
Now if I can cut my Comcast to start I will put that extra money in my $20 Challenge or anything else I can cut. I am also going to start Kmart Layaway for my items needed again for my apartment after Christmas.
If you have any suggestions let me know.
