|Since the last update, I've paid another $2k toward my January study abroad. That's been my only major money thing in the past month.
I've been too busy with school and work to really spend much money - the only out-of-town trip I've been on since school started was to my hometown this past weekend. I have started spending more on going out to eat, etc., and was getting concerned about this - but then I thought about it more and realized that my seemingly excessive eating out is really only about 3 times per week, and an average of maybe $10 to $15 per week, so it's not worth worrying about. It's funny how that seems so excessive now, when a few years ago that would have seemed like hardly eating out at all!
For the first time in a long time, I've been using debit to pay for nearly everything. Using my credit card has never been a problem - I always pay it in full every month. But since I've barely been using it, that's one less bill I have to worry about. |
