It's Like Rationing

  I got paid last week and that pay started my new budget without using credit cards! 

  It is more freeing, I will say. 

  On Saturday, for the first time in I don't know when, I went inside (GASP) a gas station and paid cash!  It is an inconvenience especially if it's rainy but I know it's what I have to do.  And a little inconvenience never hurt anyone. 

  I was also able to purchase some really cute pink nail polish without going into my weekly "blow money" since I made sure to budget a few dollars a month for cute cosmetics that I couldn't resist.

  I will say, however that I am nervous about gas.  This weekend, I will be traveling to Raleigh and Wake Forest and the gas does get eaten up quickly when going that far.  And I only have a certain amount left for gas til my next paycheck.  But we shall see how it goes.  I will let you know!

  Just a little update on how my life without using credit is going.  =)



  1. It is always a good idea to use cash I need to do it more!!

    1. I know. It feels nice after you purchase something to know that you don't have to pay for it later on but that it's already paid for!
