Not as bad as I thought

Its been about 2 weeks since this new pay system was put in effect. So far so good. I learned how to budget from my landlady....I know she is great!!! I never really was taught how to budget and one day I was talking to her and asked if she has any idea how to help me budget. It was simple and easy and I still use it after 4 years of living here. I put a certain amount every night for rent and my one bill,a certain amount for the van and then I splurge!! No I am kidding. Money gets put aside for the week. Food,carfare and then I really don't touch it. I am waiting for the just before X-mas sales to buy just a little something for my self. Something to wear as I am the practicable one. Don't know if that is good or bad just the way I am. Being brought up poor and cheap .....always having to watch the penny jar does that.

Wish this was mine!! Its pretty full.

Nothing exciting happening here. I have gotten a few things. I bought a agm battery,smart charger and a inverter so I can start to see how the electric part of this will happen. I need to do it before I am in the van so I say lets practice now!! I have some time. I want to be out by spring. Thats about 3 months from now. We will see. Its getting closer...YAH!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!


  1. Sounds like you're doing it right to me. Better to have the goal and work towards it than splurge. Come spring time you'll be in the van you want and smiling from ear to ear!


  2. Yeah BIG smile to come. I'll post it here LOL!! :)
