Not much excitement in my financial world. I am low on spending money. I’ve borrowed from my emergency fund to pay for textbooks, and I’m waiting for my refund check. I suppose it’s a good thing I had almost forgotten that I had an emergency fund, because it’s not to be used for just anything. Normally, I wouldn’t have even spent the money on textbooks, but I knew I could refill it with my refund check. I had already decided that the refund check would go to textbooks (since it’s my loans and my loans are for tuition and textbooks).
I’ve done a great job of not spending money on campus so far. I haven’t gone to the vending machines but once. I haven’t been running to the bookstore to buy candy. I have been bringing my lunch consistently. Hopefully, I can spend less on food than I did last semester!
