Records broken

Fun fact of the day…

The Veronica Mars project on kickstarter broke quite a few records including:

  • Fastest project to reach $1 million.
  • Fastest project to reach $2 million.
  • All-time highest-funded project in FILM category.
  • Third highest-funded project in Kickstarter history.
  • Most project backers of any project in Kickstarter history.

And many people thought there was no interest in a movie. THAT is the funniest thing I have heard in a long while!

Oh groceries…

So went food shopping a few times in the past few days, just because sales just changed and needed random things. Anyways I wish groceries would cost less!!! Seriously. I spend so much money just on groceries. Also it is not something that can just be avoided. I can’t just not eat. All I have to say is thank goodness I am a vegetarian because I have been looking at the prices of meat and woooowwwww! Hahah so I like to think that I save money on being a vegetarian. That I am saving so much! Haha

I must say that I do shop around and am constantly checking grocery stores flyers and usually looking for coupons.

But I think one thing that I really have to learn is that I really cannot have exactly what I want when I want it. I am use to being able to just go out and get whatever I want that day to eat. Just because obviously living with your parents you do not have to worry about all the expenses you do when you are moved out. I have decided now that when I pack a lunch for school I will really eat that, and not decided on my lunch break that I want a grapefruit or a muffin instead and go get one. I will think if I want a grapefruit, look around for the best deals then get them. Or looking into making muffins. I will of course treat myself occasionally when it is necessary.

Ohh dear…

So we have kept the receipts on what we have bought this month… it is not something that I want to to keep thinking about. But then the first month is always the hardest because you have to start from scratch. And buy everything, and plus we did buy things like shower curtains, drying wrack, and stocked up on lots of sale items. We kept all the receipts on a magnet on the fridge. Well even my strong magnets could not hold them all up, and so I had to find a new spot…. Lets hope we spend less next month.. Heh
