No Subject--Sunday

January 20th, 2008 at 04:05 pm

I have been feeling very stressed out & anxious about all of the gloomy news concerning the economy, not to mention all of the money I have recently lost in the stock market (I know I am not alone here). So I headed off to the mall.

It's a good thing I did not agree to a 'no new clothes' or 'no impulse purchases' challenge. Well, on the clearance rack I saw a shirt I have loved since I saw it, but no way would I pay $49 for it...it was marked down to $6, so of course, I snapped it up. Also bought another shirt for work for $5 (regular $22). So while I did save some money, I guess I really didn't because I bought stuff I didn't really need.

I went to the grocery store last weekend & spent $91, I will try to make that last 4 weeks, if I can. In fact, I'm sure I can...it's just a question of whether or not I will do it. However, I really hate grocery shopping, so chances are good that I will make this food last.

On the savings front, last week I did put $1250 into my 401-K, I put $1000 into my IRA, and $800 into my new HSA!

    You deserve those purchases, since you are doing well on the savings front!

    You sound like a Super Saver!

    Your clothes purchases were such bargains and everyone deserves a little treat now and then.

    The stock market will turn around eventually. In the meantime, think of this as a great buying opportunity where stocks and stock mutual funds, just like those clothes you bought at deep discounts, are on sale right now!
