My graduation dress is bought! Here's the belt that goes with it! That means graduation is getting really close and I can't be more relieved! I had a $15 off coupon plus my 30% discount which helped with the price.

As I've mentioned, next Sunday is extra discount day at work. There is a long list of items I've been eying up for weeks now but refused to buy until I could get 45% off. I made an online shopping cart and have slowly but surely removed items throughout the week to make it a more affordable trip. The basket is down to $76 and MG and I are in a big disagreement about it. Let me explain.

Now that I don't have to put money aside for rent for these summer months and utilities is almost cut in half, I have $160 of extra money each paycheck. I decided that my allowance would get $50 (although I'm still putting $50 into my emergency fund until it's all paid back!) and that leaves me with $110 left for savings and loan payments. Makes sense right? He thinks I should follow Dave Ramsey verbatim So if I want to make a purchase of $119 next week, MG is saying I can't because I'd be using future money to pay for that purchase. I get it and all, it's just really annoying because I cut my purchase down from $400 to $76-that's a LOT of stuff to get rid of with 45% off! When I work as much as I do and I'm still saving and making loan payments and everything, I think I should be able to do what I want without a lecture.

He says he's just trying to help but why wouldn't I buy this stuff when I get 45% off rather than when I get 30%? UGHHHHHHH. That's all I have to say about that.


  1. Roommates always become friends and this very behavior tends to cement into their relationship.

  2. I'm not sure what that means-care to explain?
