I found some change lurking on my desk...bringing my grand total to $12.46. :-)

I get paid this Friday (it's on a biweekly basis). I need to budget for a prescription ($10 a month...I have to remember to call it in on Thursday so I can pick it up either on Friday or Saturday). At least $30 will go to the checking account, some will go in the ziplock baggie, the rest will go for groceries and whatever cleaning supplies I need.

CC bill should be coming in soon...ugh. My goal for February is to not charge ANYTHING. Think I can make it? :-p Maybe, maybe not...usually when my goal is to charge nothing, something always comes up...maybe my goal should be to charge no more than $20.

I need a new pair of jeans...I only have 3 pairs, and my favorite one has a hole in it, now. I have a gift card for J.C. Penney's, so I think I'll wait for a couple of weeks to see what kind of sales they've got going on for February.

I also need to budget for one of those portfolio folder things...I forget what they are called, but you stick your resume in them. I should go to the college bookstore and price them...they have really fancy ones with the school emblem on the front in gold. The ones I saw at Wal-Mart were not only cheap but they looked it, too...I'd rather spend a couple extra dollars to look like I care rather than walk in to an interview with something vinyl, lol.

Ugh...job search.

I think I'm going to go through my car and see if I can find some more change. I haven't done that in a while, so there may be some lurking around.

American Idol tonight! I know, I know...but I do love it. I think I'll whip up some chicken cutlets with some Asian inspired sauce, and a salad for dinner. Of course, I still have a TON of leftovers from Sunday...maybe I'll just have some more of that. That'll probably be better...yes, I'll make a sandwich and a salad. The chicken cutlets will be for tomorrow...maybe...my best friend is coming to visit on Thursday, so we might end up going out for dinner (someplace cheap, of course!).

I think I'm good for now. :-) How are y'all doing?

    For the past ~8 months, my local JCPenney has been running a promo. On the BACK of their sales receipts there's a URL to complete a short survey of your shopping experience (takes less than 5 min), at the end of the survey you get a 15% off coupon to print and use in the next 30 days (might be 60 days, I can't remember). If you have an old JCP receipts around this might be worth checking out before you buy, or if your JCP is doing this, it might be worth making a small purchase, getting the code and coupon and going back for the jeans (depending, of course, on how much you'll be spending on jeans).

    Re: the portfolio, some career coaches recommend portfolios be PLAIN black, with no emblems. Have you tried Staples or OfficeMax? I got a decent one at OfficeMax for a reasonable price that has lasted me 5+ years. You might be able to find one on ebay, too.
