I conclude I'm just too adept to my life situation, with tools such as YNAB, omg, is this a good thing, I wonder?
I posted earlier, if I quit cigs, I can afford myself a cell phone upgrade. Well, I made it yesterday, Thursday (day 0, as I thought it), without any tobacco. Of course today was the moment of truth, as it is my pay day. So I drew open my YNAB software, crunched all my dollar and cents numbers, and it turns out I can afford myself that cell phone, and also afford my nicotine habit, even considering these American Spirit branded (natural/organic) cigarettes are a bit on the expensive side.
So I'm supporting organic farmers (at least the tobacco growing ones), AND I remembered to use the smile.amazon.com when placing my cell phone order! (the 'smile' is for some sort of charity or another, which I normally forget to use :| )
Well, the cell phone is on pre-order, as it releases July 12th, but amazon rocks, so I get release date delivery on the 12th along with free shipping :) (yes, amazon Prime still proves worth the price of admission, imo) I'm upgrading from an old (I think 1st gen, but not certain) Motorola Moto G into a newer model, the 4th gen Motorola Moto G. The normal price is like 199.99, but as a prime member, the price lists as 149.99. Of course, my penny pinching, deal finding friend quoted me as a 124.99 price on amazon/prime if you agree to having ads display on the phone's lock screen. Yes, upon adding to cart and ordering, the price indeed showed as 124.99. so I nabbed the phone as well as a case, for a total of 140.98, with an additional 50 budgeted for activating and first month/service. I plan to take it to a sprint location when it arrives on Tuesday, changing from Boost Mobile service to Sprint (altho boost uses the sprint network as is, I believe).
I'm excited, my 8gb limited storage on my current phone will bump up to 16gb, as well as having a microsd slot! (tgtbt :) )
So I have an option to attempt another go at quitting cigs, making my life more comfortable with a healthier spending money allowance, maybe i'll try this weekend. (as goes the thought, if I make it all weekend (2 days) with no smoking, I'd probably have a better chance at starting Monday/week smoke free).
Finally, ex and step left on a plane yesterday to start their new life/lives in California style. And my spaces have found a new pace. So, I'll work today, and this weekend I hope to spend tidying and cleaning, cutting grass, essentially, taking care of my environment!!!!! I'm excited about cleaning, so it could be worse, but I dunno about better, at this point :x.
How did I write so much this morning. hmm, perhaps its this energy drink my mom surprised me with yesterday. I do like gifts tho. hehe
Alrighty then, have a ~peaceful Friday peeps! Lets get to that weekend already ;)
