So. Today I bought a "Home Budget" ledger thing.
No, this was not, actually, inspired by the economic crisis. Instead, it came from this nagging feeling that I'm spending way too much money on food for one person. So I intend to find out. I need to see if my suspicions are correct and, if so, figure out how to fix the problem.
I am hoping some of my fears are caused, in part, by all the crap I had to buy at the start of the semester to fill in the gaps as I switched from dorm to apartment. I had to buy a desk and a bookshelf and a drawer set and a trashcan... It added up quickly. I'm also hoping that having this list of numbers at home, waiting for me, will cause me to think twice before purchasing frivolously.
I'd rather not be completely destitute as I commence grad school. :)
Also, it was effing COLD today! We finally had to turn on the heat.
