I've been a bad girl and other news!!!

Its only January 11 and I have already gone over my budget for the miscellaneous category. I decided that this year I was going to become more healthy and start eating and exercising more. I have been on the Master Cleanse for the past five days and I am feeling great, but I wanted to make some lifestyle changes for after I get off the cleanse. I began researching super foods and decided to buy some... in fact I spent 31.00 buying Gogi Berries and Acai supplements from At least my order qualified for free shipping so that is one thing I didn't have to pay for!

Good News:
I will be receiving a refund check from grad school for over $3000 sometime this month or early next month. That is going right into my emergency fund! I may need to use some of it to pay for a summer class but for now I am keeping it stashed away! I don't think I will have a problem reaching my goal of $20,000 for the year. With this economy I believe I definitely need it.

School News:
The new semester starts this week. I really can't wait. I am taking 3 classes and one of them is an online class. I thought online classes were easy but from looking at the syllabus I was totally wrong.

One thing I was not wrong about was the price of books. 3 classes and four books... total $286.00, and that's buying used! I need to hurry up and write me one!

After this semester I have two more classes to take during the summer ( hopefully summer session 1) and then I am done with this degree. Essentially, around the same time I am done teaching for the year will also be the same time I am done with my Masters. Now that is something to look forward to!

Until next time, think prosperous thoughts

I never tried a master cleanse but could probably benefit from it. I am also using my tuition refund to boost my emergency fund as I said on my blog. Good luck with reaching your $20,000 goal this year and with almost being being finished with your Master's! Reading blogs like yours keeps me motivated!
