Goals I like: Clothing budget

Tasha made this comment to me on Dec. 3 in a chat: “Seriously, good job on the clothes thing! I’m a little surprised you stuck to it, tbh 😀 I figured you’d throw your hands up in July and say fuck it.” So did I friends, so did I. I keep track of what I spend on…

2012 goals: Wrapping up the year

I’m going to do this post a little differently since it’s the last one for my 2012 goals. I set my goals here, and in the past 12 months, some of them have dropped off the list because of various factors. So, I’m going to wrap up the complete list here, and add notes/thoughts about…

November: Goals progress

Only one month left in this year! Make clothes. $456.92 / $500 91.4% I spent $58 in November on three dresses. I have $43.08 left for the remainder of the year. I think I’m going to make it! Lose 10 pounds: I’m up a little to 147.2. I’m just rolling with this one. I think I’ve…

October goals check-in

September: Goals progress

Oh, glorious September. I spent the beginning part of the month in Ohio with family and attending a friend’s wedding — and seeing a friend who came back from her Peace Corps stint in Africa married and pregnant. Although I didn’t make it to the Hancock County Fair, it was still mostly great times. I…

August: Goals progress

Yeah, I get that it’s almost mid-September. I’ve been in Ohio with the fam. I’m re-ordering my goals because I don’t think of them in the order I’ve had them in before. Make clothes. $288.42 / $500 57.7% I spent $19.96 in August on two clearance items from Target. I couldn’t resist. One’s a hooded…
