Feeling low on funds

It’s seems like everything hit me in one weekend and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by the possible large amount of spending money I need for this year.

The Egypt trip is going to take a big chunk out of my budget. Also, Sis talked to me about a cruise trip for Mum and Dad in September as Mum’s 60th gift. She didn’t expect me to pay because she knows I don’t make as much as them. However, it would be very expensive for her and Bil so I still like to help out. Also, she wants me to come with. So that’s potentially paying for myself and paying part of Mum and Dad. AND the cost of flights!

The bf is moving away. I promised him I’d take one trip to see him. The flight is going to be expensive but I don’t see any other expenses from that trip since he should pay for everything else.

Then there are little costs popping up all over the place. Although, I’ve been trying to ignore the signs but I think my Motorola Razr battery is going. My friends are planning to visit in the summer, which comes with cost of eating out and doing things. I need to replenish the contact lens supply sometime soon.

Finally I’ve run out of conditioner. Ok. It’s peanuts compared to the rest but I felt like saying it. Do you find you run out of conditioner about 3 times as fast as shampoo?

Anyway, when I feel more optimistic I will have a plan. Right now I just like to complain a little.

I used to use a lot more conditioner than shampoo...but now, I wash my hair every other day, and my hair looks great!

Considering buying a replacement battery for your cell phone on Amazon. I bought mine for under $10 (including shipping)

Complain away...we all have our days.

And you're not the only one who has a ton of shampoo and no conditioner!

Yes sometimes the money situation can feel overwhelming, but it will turn around. I am way too simple and use a 2 in 1 shampoo, too lazy for 2 steps in the shower.

to be honest i don't really use conditioner. at most i'll use 2in1 like once a week, and my hair's doing just fine. :)

conditioner always goes first. 2 in 1's leave a film on my hair :(
