We’re about a week into the month and it’s going pretty well! I think I mentioned in the other post that I’m in the middle of a room makeover. That means I do have some extra expenses this month but it’s not anything I can avoid. I bought some paint for around $44 and then I picked up TurboTax as well. I did eat lunch out one day this week but it was a taco food truck! I mean, I can’t say no to that. Plus because I went out in the cold to get those tacos, the owner handed me a free cup of soup! Then I put in $10 towards flowers for a friend because her mom passed away. That’s about it for any “extra” spending! The flowers were a surprise expense but $10 isn’t much. It was really hard not to but a very awesome pair of shoes at class the other day but I did it. I said no. Maybe I’ll treat myself once my bills are more in order.
Better yet, I’ve made a few extra bucks! I’m sending a box of Funko Pops off to another blogger plus I received some money from Sideshow. It’s actually been a pretty good month so far. I was even able to go to the movies without spending anything. How? It’s all about those free screenings! Seriously. It’s the best way to save money and still get out of the house. If you’re a member of AMC Stubs they offer free screenings. There are tons of websites out there too that list free screenings. I highly recommend checking them out. I normally just search my city name plus “early screenings” or “advance screenings.” I actually have an entire post about how to attend free screenings here. Just because we’re trying not to spend money doesn’t mean we still can’t have fun!
How is everyone else doing? So far, so good? Too early to tell? Let me know in the comments!
I might have enough Pops for one more box! If anyone is interested in a mystery Funko Box, let me know!
