As always, the first week of the month has money going in all directions. I still have around $150 in bills that will come in the next few weeks so I have approximately $400 to live on this month. Doable, eh? I sure hope so. December is a tricky month and I could easily spend all of that money on parties, gifts, decorations, dinners, etc. There’s always just one more person you could buy for.
“There’s always just one more person you could buy for.”
TELL ME ABOUT IT!
I was walking today at lunch and realized that I should probably get something nice for the administrative people in our department that keep my life running smoothly. There are 4 of them. But then I thought – 4 MORE gifts…. sheesh…. then I decided that some cookies or a nice card would also work. But it is so easy to keep thinking of more and more people to buy for. Especially as the “Christmas spirit” starts working!
I think I’m going to stick to baking something for the floor. That way everyone gets something!
Also, I love the snow all over the page. How did you do that?
