Random updates

I ended up not going to the party yesterday. Didn't really feel like it. So instead I watched some DVDs, went on a walk, did some cleaning, and re-planned the menu for my housewarming party tomorrow.

I sold two books today, making $11.46! Before shipping of course. My total for the month is now over $120!

And speaking of, I have a confession to make. I bought a purse. Well, a tote technically. I used some of the money to buy it. It was $51, including shipping. It's a really cute tote and very roomy making it perfect for school.

One of the things I will have to get used to now that fiance and I have combined finances, is having to ask permission to buy something. Well, not really asking for permission but more double checking that he is ok with a large purchase like that (and he was fine with it). I have never really had to double check with anyone before I made a large purchase. With my parents, any allowance money I earned was mine to spend as I wished as long I didn't buy anything inappropriate.

    Have you two thought of having some kind of fun money? Just money that is allocated each month for you to spend on whatever you want - without needing to justify it to the other person.

    We are each getting spending money each month. But the tote cost a little bit more than my spending money so I wanted to double check with him that he was ok with me spending a little more this month.

    Sometimes I forget that you guys aren't mind readers and forget to fill in a few details. Big Grin

    it does take a bit of getting used to. a year ago i wouldn't have thought twice at booking in to get a tattoo, buying a couple of cds i wanted or browsing the sales for some cute shirts. now i have to think about the purchases and either fit them into my fun money or figure out another way to get it! (like selling extra stuff on ebay to afford it)
