I love lists.

  • Find a job, any job.
  • Clean my room
  • Sort through my clothes, four piles: keep, alter, donate, ebay
  • drink less soda

I<3home remedies!

Not only do home remedies save money but this toilet bowl cleaner i found is better than those harsh chemicals we flush away. This lemony paste will help to get rid of the yellow stains in your toilet bowl. Since lemons are acidic, it helps cut down on those stains.

2 tbspoon baking soda
1 tbspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice

It's kinda cool cause it fizzes too! I've just started using this but I'm happy to be putting my lemons to use.

His name is Tibby

My friend found a kitten stuck between the garages in her backyard. She doesn't have the time to take care of him so I said I would take him in. Isn't he adorable? He's only three weeks old and in good health. His meowing threw me off the first night, I thought I wasn't a good mother. Who would've thunk it, that I would one day raise a cat. On the downside, my mother claims she's allergic and that she has asthma so I'm not sure how long I could keep Tibby for.

August/September Spending Recap

Today's a breakthrough, I went through my cc statement and categorized everything that I used my card on. Here's the breakdown, it's kinda scary...


Alloy Winter Coat $50.99 (on clearance from 99.99, i couldn't resist and i wanted a light colored outerwear)
-Victoria Secret Underwear 7 for $25, i couldn't help using the free 2 panties w/$17 purchase :(
-Alicia + Olivia Biker Boots and Christian Siriano's Snakeskin bootie 74.98 (BOGO)
-Maidenform Outlet Bra 10.41
-2B Bebe Outlet white tank dress and grey jersey miniskirt $17.49 (both 70% off!!!)

Damage= $178.87 (This is not good, not good at all. I'm going to have to learn how to fight off the temptation of coupons/sales/clearances! Ugh, and I just got a buy one get one 50% off @ H&M =T)

Food (mostly fast food) = $60.29

Transportation = 37.75 (metrocards are expensive :(

Misc. Nike Run Registration Fee = $20.00

USPS = $26.84 i signed up for this online clothing swap site, I haven't used this site that much because it has a very small network. I've received a few things that I liked but i'm not sure if the shipping fees are worth it sometimes. I also sell random items on ebay.

I really shouldn't be spending the way I am since I am afterall, unemployed. (sigh)

Things that made me smile today :)

-my mom coming home, i had to tell her my near-death story and then listen to her lecture me for half an hour...ahh

-this winter purchase:) it was only $50 (w/a 20% alloy coupon, too bad i couldn't combine coupons) and it goes great w/some brown boots i already own!! SCORE!!!

I almost killed myself today...

For some reason or another, my mind hasn't been exactly on the right track lately. I've been known to forget my keys, sunglasses, cellphone or any other misc. stuff. Today, after lunch I started to boil water and I told myself (in my head) that I have to shut it off before I leave the house. Of course, I was distracted, talking to people, surfing the web and by the time I knew it, it was 4 o'clock so I rushed out of the house to make it to the post office before 5. I had totally forgotten about the water boiling and didn't remember until an hour after I came back when I started to smell the burnt. Luckily, the top of the boiler is made of plastic and the smell traveled all the way to my room. When I got to the kitchen, the flame had been put out and there wasn't any water left in the pot. I opened all the windows and I turned on the fan.

I don't know why but my brother fails to be on top of his shit. (sigh) what an upsetting day.
