After tediously working to bring this site back to life (technical difficulties, you will forever be my nemesis), I am excited (and humbled) to be resurrecting this project. It’s something I had been telling myself I was going to do for some time now but a class I’m taking this semester gave me the final push to get myself in gear and start posting again.
A lot has changed since we last chatted. The main points though, have remained the same:
- I am a college student
- who is broke and
- needs to get my financials (back) in line.
For a step back in history check out my first post, here, explaining the reasons behind this blog. Don’t worry though, I’ll be revisiting these ideas again in a future post. I want to examine how I’ve changed over these past couple of years (holy moly, I started this blog almost two years ago!) and how my future is taking shape.
In brief though, as the title of the blog suggests, my plan is to live on forty dollars or less each week. Granted my life style has changed a little since first starting. I’m paying my own rent and utilities (or trying to) so those need to be accounted for in my budgeting as well. Also, I’m graduating in two and half short months *gulp* and I need a plan for how to get ready to start out in the real world.
It’s not just about saving money anymore so I’m not so broke. It’s about changing my lifestyle to better prepare myself for putting on my big kid pants.
Stay tuned for an updated budget, budget cooking and tips and tricks I pick up in my journey to more efficiently budget my life and finally.
