First, a quick note. A few people asked me if I was being sponsored or if I received any compensation from Five Below because of this post. The answer?
While I totally would sell out if anyone wanted to sponsor me because I am…how do you say it?
Right. While I would totally accept sponsorships/review things if it was relevant to the blog or my life, I would/will always let you guys know if I’m receiving any kind of compensation for a post. So that post, my amazon love one, and all my sutter home shoutouts? All me baby. All sad, broke me.
But again, I totally would do a review of something in exchange for goods and/or money.
Anyway, this segues nicely into today’s topic: I am broke. Sigh. Looking at my bank account makes me sad.
But I realized something: we’re finally over the holiday season! Not counting Valentine’s day, but I already bought Boyfriend his gift and we don’t make a huge deal about Valentine’s day because it is a made up holiday.
Anyway, my point is that from August to January, I have to deal with all of my family (and Boyfriend’s) birthdays, AND Christmas. But from about now until Mother’s day, I’m free! I have no celebrations or major purchases coming up. I’m making February through May the season of savings!
I’ve cut down on booze again (for now), so that expense has plummeted. I’m in relatively good shape with my furniture.
|I'll take it.|
And I have resolved to cut down my online shopping! Starting February 1st!
DAMNIT, SELF! STOP SPENDING MONEY!
Yes, self. We can still buy food. But with coupons! Because…
It’s going to be a long winter/spring, methinks. Do you guys have any good money-saving tips?
