7 Things

Judy from We may be poor, but we are happy did a post today about 7 things. 

7 things you can’t give up, 7 things that are hard to give up and 7 things I have already given up.

Here are mine :0)

Things I can’t give up.
1. 2nd car. With our schedule we need 2 cars.
2. Cell phones.
3. Our 1 year anniversary trip. We will however do it very cheaply.
4. B going to school.
5. Internet
6. I have no idea about the other 2
7.

Things I could live without if I had to.
1. Going out to eat. We don’t go out often, but living with your in laws you need some time to yourself. It seems like when we go out to eat is the only time we really get to feel like a normal couple.
2. B’s motorcycle
3. My laptop. We have B’s desktop.
4. Extra spending even though I don’t spend that much extra
5. Cable. We don’t pay for it at his parents so that nice.
6. Beer for B and wine for me.
7. Fruit

Things I have given up
1. Bachelor and bachelorette party for my sister-in-law.
2. Netflix
3. Shopping whenever I want.
4. A trip to West Virginia University to go tailgating with friends I havent seen since our wedding :0(
5. Time- Once I get a second job I will be giving up a lot of time so I can work more
6. Space- Living with my in-laws…enough said.
7. Going out to movies, bars or any entertainment.

Doing this activity has actually made me really frustrated. I feel like I have given up so many things the past few months and its never good enough. I can never get ahead…no matter how hard I try. I don’t go out a buy clothes, food and other stuff I don’t need. Yet we can never seem to catch up. I have been really stressed out about money recently and I feel bad for B because I have been taking it out on him. (Sorry love) I’m just so eager to really start our lives together as a married couple living on our own.

Making Extra Dough

Again with the job hunt. This time I need a part-time job. With B starting school on Monday he will be starting part-time. Which means we will really have to cut back. I don’t know how we can cut back anymore than we already do but we will try.

If im going to have a part-time job its needs to be a fun job. I deal with so much crap at work I really don’t want to go to another job and deal with more crap. I also want a job where I already shop at so I can get a discount. I would love to work in a retail place like Crate and Barrel or Homegoods, rather than Macy’s or Ann Taylor. I like to furnish my home more than myself. B told me I should work the streets. He thinks I could get a lot of money…such a sweetheart :0)

When I get a second job I am really going to dedicate myself to making as much extra money as I can. That extra money is going to savings a paying down credit card. Except for the first check. I already said it was going to buy me and him new clothes. He desperately needs jeans and I need fall work clothes. I told him its my extra money and I get to spend it where I want. ha!  I’m going to drop off some applications around the area the next week. Wish me luck!
