I saved my money all year. I did not exactly meet my $2000 goal at the exact end of the year, and I am so bummed. But, I'm picking back up with a new gal to save $3000 by the end of the year. As it is now, I need to save about $100 a month, and I hope to make it.
On other exciting news, I got a septum piercing!

Christmas is done!

I got plenty of presents, but i also spent way too much money. I actually don't know how to remedy this. I couldn't buy cheaper presents, because cheap does not equal quality. I just need to focus on saving profusely. my new goal for the year is to save one thousand dollars. I will try to give you an update as the year goes on.

Step Stones

I went to the casino a couple of days ago to play bingo with some friends. I only played keno and one other slot which I won one. But that's not all... Wait for it... I didn't play blackjack!

I can't hardly believe it either.

Windfall or Break Even?

As you guys know I struggled with going to the casino when I first turned 21. Thank goodness I calmed down a little and now only go about once a month. At one point, I felt like I lost so much money that I couldn't keep track of it anymore. Here's my delimma though: since I didn't keep track to the dollar, I actually think I came out ahead when I won the money. Of course now I am going to save the bulk of it. Gambling is a sunk cost. You will never get it back again when you consistently lose. If I hadn't gone to the casino, I probably would have saved that money instead.

I've really been refraining from going to the casino lately. It's been more than a month. I went with a couple of friends of mine tonight and  won at bingo! I am very excited and played a little slots, played a little blackjack, and gave my friends a little treat. It's always a good idea to show your friends some appreciation. I have met my Christmas Fund goal, of course.As for the rest, I will buy some necessities then save it.
(In my Bank of America bank account, which I really need to find a new bank because of their unjustified checking account fees starting in January.)

I've been neglacting you...

I haven't written in two whole months! I also haven't been to the casino but two times tops. I have been really avoiding it because I don't have my awesome blackjack playing skrills yet. (see wishlist!) That said, I have been saving money to buy x-mas gifts for my family and friends this year and I am 88% done. That is pretty good with three months left to go. Eventually I will get back to the casino, but until then I will be saving, saving, saving!

Starting a Week Off

Well, I went back to the casino tonight and lost $200 dollars and $80 off my paycheck. Since I deposited $200 last night, I now have no money to play with until next paycheck. I won a bit on slots but nothing much to write about. I'm sitting here watching my friend play Keno. Maybe a week off will teach me something...
