The Plan

Every so often I realize that I've been spending too much. As a result I take a month (although the first time was 40 days) and 'fast' on spending. It's not easy, but it's quite helpful in many ways. Each time I've done this I have actually made between 50 and 200 dollars. Combine that with the money I didn't spend, and the fact that I reformed my spending, it can have a big impact financially.

Day 12: Bartering blight

Average day to start, yogurt and cheese. I didn't walk though since I will be going to Roanoke after work. There was $22.36 in the water money fund (I pay that) so I scooped that up. Oh and there was a 5 pence coin (gee thanks). Aaron gave me an apple to try out too. I still have another one on my desk but I think I'll bring it up with me on my car trip this weekend. I sold off my Jawbone cell phone headset. I don't use it anymore because the speaker phone works so well on the phone I have now. The guy was sketch and wanted to trade me a stick of laptop memory for it. I didn't want it but he didn't want to pay the $35 and instead offered me $25 and the memory. Turns out that he swapped the memory out with a cheaper kind that the packaging indicated. I really don't care, especially because the headset hadn't been charged in a long time so I don't even know if it will hold power any longer. I took Aaron and Sam out to Rivermill for birthday lunches which is always good for the belly.

After work I went to Salem to see Starr's new house. I helped out with some painting and ate pizza with her and her friends. Was a good productive night. When I came home I washed the paint off my feet and went to bed. I'm wiped. Oh.. did I mention how excited it is for me to get a guest story on
