So, budgeting...

Does anyone else have Mint? I just scared myself by looking at how much I spent the last two weekends. Like scared myself into wanting to be a hermit who plays ToeJam and Earl in his apartment by himself every weekend. Not that daunting of a prospect.

But really. I started with unnecessary goals of paying rent a week in advance and worked my way backwards. I think, all things considered, I’m still netting positive by month’s end. Possibly not taking into account a few auto pay bills, but even still.

I’m thinking under 200 a week should keep me in good shape.

Oh and bike rides have been fantastic so far.

It’s by the same company that does TurboTax. You give them access to all your accounts and they help you budget.

I tried Mint once but I didn't feel comfortable inputting so much secure information into an app.

My accountant BIL uses it religiously, so I assume good things about it.

I signed up for it a while ago. When I was just barely making student loans. Then I was in kind of an irrelevant budgeting phase and didn’t use it.

Now it makes sense to use it again.

Well so much for budgeting. Walked to the brewery thinking I’d just have one or two. Ended up being a concert. Ended up people I knew showed up. Ended up drinking more than necessary.

It was nice though. Got the word out that I had moved. Played the bar chit chat game which helps my social needs. My desire for human communication.

I’ll just eat more Ramen.

Try and drink less beer during the week.

So after further assessment what is not alright is that my copy of Veedon Fleece got warped by the sun.

But it still plays fine. So still netting positive.

Well side one played. Side two did not. Sandwiched that bitch under my box of records. Let’s give it a few days.
