October 2021 Review

This month I found out that my cheap scale is not even close to reality. I have a new one and have weighed myself with a load cell, and shipping scale and found that I’m a little over 10 pounds heavier than I though I was. And after testing some different weights, it wasn’t offContinue reading “October 2021 Review”

August 2021 Review

August was a month of slacking and falling behind. I got so busy with life and work that I stopped tracking my spending and eating. Especially the eating. I’m actually surprised I didn’t gain more. Working fairs and festivals meant a lot of deep fried food and sitting around. I would have actually been +Continue reading “August 2021 Review”

End of Week Review 11/1/2020

This week the stock market took a dip which is the downside to doing these weekly check-ins. Who knows maybe today everything will bounce back and the $500 dip in my net worth will all be back. Or it could get worse. Still not going to touch that money. I am still going to investContinue reading “End of Week Review 11/1/2020”

End of Week Review 10/27/2020

So life is crazy. After a couple Covid scares and a wild rollercoaster of emotions that lasted a couple weeks, I finally have the mental capacity to catch up with this. With all of the stress may have been some stress eating so I added on a couple pounds. However I did land a newContinue reading “End of Week Review 10/27/2020”

End of Week Review 10/4/2020

This week I was a bit more deliberate in my spending. Partly because I was busier working on this show so I don’t have free time to think about shopping and I’m only buying essentials for food. Last week I splurged on food when I shouldn’t have. Especially since the splurge wasn’t healthy food. LazinessContinue reading “End of Week Review 10/4/2020”

End of Week Review 9/28/2020

I didn’t even realize that I missed a week last week. I was handed a gig! So I’ve been binge designing lighting for “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” which is a musical about kids in a spelling bee. It is as ridiculous as it sounds. But it has now taken almost all of myContinue reading “End of Week Review 9/28/2020”

End of Week Review 9/14/2020

My wife and I have been talking about the virus and have decided to stock up on the stuff that became hard to find during the first run of the pandemic. So We both dropped a decent chunk of change on all of the necessities so we don’t run out of the essentials. I mightContinue reading “End of Week Review 9/14/2020”

End of Week Review 9/7/2020

I think I have found the downside to how I look at my net worth. I went out this week to get some tools for my garage and they aren’t being included in my net worth. Granted it is hard to determine the actual worth of tools and appliances after they are used. So althoughContinue reading “End of Week Review 9/7/2020”

End of Week Review 8/30/2020

This week I buckled down on unnecessary spending. I cancelled my audible account that I don’t use, kept myself from buying food not necessary and on the list, and started using the 72 hour rule, where you put something in your cart for 72 hours and if you don’t think you really need it, youContinue reading “End of Week Review 8/30/2020”

End of Week Review 8/22/2020

This week wasn’t much to write home about. It started out with one of my Prosper notes being charged off. Which means the person didn’t make payments for over 120 days so it is going to be sold off to another organisation and maybe I’ll get some money back. So I started off losing almostContinue reading “End of Week Review 8/22/2020”
