Progress Report...


I survived working the entire July 4th weekend at my part-time gig. Thankfully, I work full-time at a Bank so I had Monday off to recuperate. The Chicago weather even cooperated. It was beautiful yesterday when the forecast was calling for thunderstorms. =)

Here is my progress report for July. I am putting together a monthly recap for June after all. I will post it in a few days.

One thing I am noticing now that I am working two jobs is that I don’t have the time to spend as much money as I was spending. On the other hand, I did not participate in the bring your lunch to work challenge because I wasn’t home enough. Since I have to work some nights during the week and weekend, I am splitting my time between my house in the Suburbs and my BF’s house in the City since he’s much closer to downtown. So if I buy groceries and don’t go home, they’re not much use to me. I did go to Aldi yesterday to buy bagels and cream cheese along with chicken salad and crackers to keep in the fridge at work. Now, I won’t go over to Starbucks each morning and get an iced tea with a cheese bagel….that was costing $5 every morning.

I decided to have my transportation charged to my credit card like I do with my services from AT&T so I will know each month my transportation costs. I am getting close to having enough reward points to get a $25 statement credit or $25 rewards check.
