I'm going to go ahead and credit this image to Hyperbole and a Half, because even though it technically isn't, we all know it is.

So besides the fact that a shopping ban while on 30 for 30 is optional, I was also working with a self-imposed budget of $150/month. This means that I've successfully blown through November and December. It didn't help that I did some stress shopping when I should have been studying, and it didn't help that I went home for a few days, because my mom and I can spend dolladollabillz like nobody's business.
Part of my motivation in starting this blog was to do better with money. Looks like part of that is being embarrassingly honest about how BRUTALLY AWFUL I am at it right now! At least I'm not a failwhale without a plan: I'm stripping December's budget (Christmas is coming, this should not be hard) and decreasing January's to $125 to deal with my splurge. I downloaded the CashFlow app to help keep track of purchases as they happen, and I am staying the hell away from Target. Do you guys have any tips that help you stay within your budget?
Thanks to Franziska for hosting a Budgeting Bloggers link-up. Looking forward to my monthly virtual shopaholics anonymous meetings :)
