I'm going through another financial freakout right now. I was just in Target and managed to put the $24 worth of merchandise back on the racks, and now that I'm going through this, I am SO happy I did. For $24!!! This is horrible.
So here's what I'm going to do. And I have to accept that this might take some time.
 I will eat only the food I buy from the grocery store.
 I will make delicious, healthy meals and take them to work every day. (I take my lunch to work now, but I'm sure I can do it better.)
 I will eat all of my vegetables before they go bad.
 I will not partake of Steve's trips to the corner pizza place. I will make something for myself.
 I will not buy a cup of coffee that costs more than $2.00, and not more than once a week.
That covers a lot of the food stuff. In other places to cut back on spending...
 I will drive as little as I possibly can.
 I will take less trips to Goodwill.
 I will not turn on the heat unless I absolutely have to.
 I will stop browsing my favorite online stores out of boredom.
Now the question is what I'm going to do to bring in some more money, because when I look at my expenses, most of them are absolutely necessary and my problem actually has nothing to do with spending.
 Work on Saturdays as a counselor at work (on the Saturdays I'm not already working as an educator)
 Sell on ebay (in the works)
 Keep options open
I just REALLY don't want to resort to a ramen and water diet.
PS to Bobbie: this freakout and the above reforms will in no way affect our trip on April 12th. I'll make it work.
