anti-frugal, but at least I can feel my fingers

January 4th, 2005 at 02:13 pm

my boyfriend's parents gave me an electric heating blanket and a ceramic heater for Christmas. they are both WONDERFUL. I am so excited to have both of them. I have the ceramic heater running now, as it is 60 degrees in my apartment. I don't have to pay for heat but I also have no control over it, so I am at the mercy of my landlord and his settings. unfortunately this may mean a bigger electric bill for me, but I only pay $30 a month on average anyway, so a little heat shouldn't break the bank.

I've been gone for a while, celebrating the holidays with family in the land of dial-up internet and one phone line. so no logging in to read up on discussion posts or journal entries.

however, the last couple of weeks have been quite inexpensive..I paid for gasoline to get there and back and about $40 in books and games on the day we went into town. everything else was free!

I went to the grocery store last night and spent only $26 and paid cash. I went to target and used the gift card I received and spent that. my companion covered the rest (about $20), but he has basically been living with me for a while now so I let him.

I haven't paid off my credit card fully yet but I am manipulating my budget to determine what would be best. it will be paid off by mid February at the very latest.
