Out of Control Spending

I have been spending way too much money lately. I feel like summer is more expensive than winter due to living in an area where it's cold in the winter. Now is my chance to get outside and not freeze. I spent close to $200 last weekend alone. Not good!

I bought a season pass to the amusement park in the area. Some of my good friends have them as well, so this should get lots of use on the weekends. We had a blast there this last weekend. If I got twice, it's paid for itself. I also bought a new swimsuit and bra (both on great sales). I went to lunch with a friend I haven't seen in awhile. I stocked up on a few grocery items. I needed gas (which has been creeping up in price around here).

I need to really watch my spending for the rest of the month. I really want to stay under budget. The only issue I might have with this are clothes. I am searching for some cute summer tops. So far no luck, but if I find something I am definitely buying it since I have been searching for awhile.

Summer is always a bit spendier for me, especially since this last winter was sooo long.

As for cute tops, I have had great luck at Ross and Marshall's lately (Tahari and Kors tops for $10) as well as JCrew--they have lots of cute sale items right now.

Who would prove those graveless love and lives? Snow kept falling over the village,quiet as ever.And the young hid themselves behind the rs gold birch wood.The bad news came at the other afternoon.Her love laid down his life on the battlefield.Quietly she came to the birch wood,waiting there each day on tiptoe.She said he'd just lost his way in the land far away.
