Shop The Look
Now that we’re halfway through the year, I’ve had a lot of moments where I’ve thought about how much money I should have saved up. However, I had an eye opening experience when I realized I’ve been working so much yet I have hardly nothing to show for it. When I took a look at my bank statements, I realized I’ve been spending way too much on clothes and food. Throughout this, I’ve now added a shit ton of stuff to my closet that I hardly ever wear and I’ve gained some weight from eating out all of the time.
As summer is approaching I now have a bunch of new clothes I’m happily willing to show off but a body that I’m not proud of. I’ve been paying $30 a month for a gym membership I hardly use. So throughout all of my deep thinking, I came to the conclusion that I’m going to challenge myself to not buy anything new and not eat out in excess in the month of June. Plus I’m going to go to the gym 20 times this month in hopes that I will continue this in other months.
It’s been pretty hard to keep up a good track record but I’m excited to challenge myself in such a way. So far I have not purchased anything except shampoo because I needed it, but I bought the cheapest and biggest bottle so it could last me longer. I also have not eaten out nor do I have plans to. I started this challenge off by telling Isaac and my family so that way they don’t pressure me into buying things or eating out.
Recently I got a second job for the summer time while I’m not taking any classes so I can make more money to invest into my future. I opened up a savings account specifically for the money I’ll be getting and I can’t wait to see how much I’ll have saved up by the end of summer!
I’d love for you guys to also join in on my frugal June experience 🙂 and if you have any suggestions on how to save money, please let me know.
