I depleted some of my emergency fund to pay all of my bills this morning. My phone bill was due and I figured while I was paying it, I would just pay the utility bill and the Internet bill at the same time. I should have paid them with my chequing account, but on Sunday I was at Wal-Mart buying bread making ingredients and then looked through their clothes and found a skirt and a couple turtle necks that I could use for work. Plus I needed some tights as it is getting cold out (PS I hate winter, yet refuse to leave Canada....). So over all I spent something like $80 on clothes and $15 on ingredients. I am happy with my purchases because I need more professional looking stuff for work. I used to work in a warehouse where there was no dresscode and I lived in jeans. Now I am in an office where jeans can only be worn on Fridays. I have made it through my first year, but last winter I was freezing as my hoodie was not really appropriate.
I bought bread making ingredients because my friend gave me her bread maker when she moved. I love it!!! My house smells awesome (baked bread is my favorite smell ever) and I have a fresh loaf of bread for peanut butter sandwiches. Yummy!
So yes, I "borrowed" some money out of my emergency fund, but plan on paying it back on November 6, with the money I would have used to pay my bills. I just don't like looking at bills. It's like they taunt me until I pay them.
PS. My last post may look blank, but its really a secret code (not really that secret) for my new BLOG background. Not sure if I really like the overall look, but I was home sick yesterday and playing around.
PPS. I miss relaxing in a cafe in Latvia drinking turkish coffee. Just randomly throwing that out there.
