Hi folks! Just a quick update for my first couple of days of December / last few days of November.
Cell Phone: $100 (Went over my data plan and had to pay a extra $30.)
Groceries: $49 (Note: this was half the cost of my total; I split groceries 50/50 with Thomas.)
Yoga (monthly membership): $99
Christmas shopping (budget: $400): $23
Eating out: $90.24 (This is abnormally high for one week! I need to keep the costs of eating out low for the rest of the month…)
Business branding assistance: $45
Unexpected costs: PS+ annual subscription renewal ($66)
Total expenses: $1208
One-time career coaching: $60
Upwork contract: $20 (Not paid out.)
Total income: $60
I am bringing lunch to work at least 4 out of 5 days of the week.
I am not going to spend any additional money on Starbucks during the week.
I am making and eating dinner at home at least 4 out of 5 days of the week.
I will continue focusing on gratitude for what I have.
I will continue looking for short-term gigs on Upwork; I am continuing to edit chapters for a studio I am working with, but it is a bi-monthly payout so I’m expecting a bigger paycheck in January.
I need to revisit and follow up with some potential clients for editing and coaching.
