So I'm going take advantage of that and start saving up to pay off my debt, spring shopping, and traveling!
So I've developed what I should get (and not what I want) and how I should save:
Weekly earnings at minimum: $150 (after taxes)
HK Debt: -$113
Travel/Vacation money: -$24
Shopping, hanging out, etc.: -$13
Transportation Money: Okay hopefully my boyfriend can help 8D~
So that means I only have $13 to spend weekly (*CRIES*). I can do it! I mean it will only last for six months and hopefully I will get more hours at work which means more working, less play, and more saving money like eating at home and no fancy bubble tea drinks. I know it looks stupid to put so much money in vacation money but I really love going out of the country and I would much rather see the world in my lifetime than save up most of my life for a house. I mean.. thats what my spouse is for right? Hehehe.
Along with knowing how to budget my money for what I should spend it on, I should also sort out what type of clothes I need. Since Spring is approaching (although not very fast because New York takes a while till it gets warm ugh..............) I want to get my list of things I SHOULD buy and not things I want:
Spring/Summer Shopping 2010
3 Summer Blouses
2 Summer Dresses (one long, one short)
2 Flip-Flops (Old Navy, 2 for $5! Black and pink!)
1 High Heel
1 pair of light colored bootcut/flared jeans
1 belt (maybe a DIY project)
I think this is do-able and reasonable. I have more than enough shoes and hats... and bags.. but the bag has been bought hahaha!
I can't wait!
