Strange, Tingling Sensation


I've somehow managed to save around $400 over the last month. The last time I saved this much money Bill Clinton was in office.

Seriously.

The reason for the savings push is that my parents are flying in for a few days in a week and a half. So instead of putting everything on a credit card during that time, I simply kept money made from my sales on etsy.com sitting in my Paypal account, and did not use any of it to pay down debt. To obtain this money, Paypal enacts a four day waiting period before it transfers it to my bank account. So it's nicely out of reach.

The debt war lulls a bit, but I'm feeling good knowing I have money to spend when the peeps are in town and I don't have to keep taking them "people watching" in the park and serving them fabulous dinners of balogna and cheese sandwiches. As soon as I get their asses back on the plane though, the war resumes. I'm losing the taste of debt blood, and let me tell you something: I'm gettin' thirsty.

New debt total is: $15,012.34
