Money Date #8 (2/5/2019) - Short month = two quick paydays!!

Hello, beautiful people! It’s been two whole weeks so I’ve updated my blog about my money.

I’m determined to get back on track by the end of this week. I know t’s only Tuesday right now, but I’m feeling so much better already! Like, really good.
