Saving Update: Easter Holidays & Selling Things Over Facebook!

It’s almost Easter, guys! Meaning another season of spending, spending, spending!!

I don’t know about you, but my family are big on Easter. We love our chocolate, but more than that, we love giving chocolate! Usually, before Easter Sunday my family and I go out shopping to buy Easter Eggs, Bunnies, and Bilbies for each other.

We eat bilbies, not bunnies!

But with the Easter season coming along, that’s more money spent for those who celebrate the season, so in order to save this year during Easter what I’ll be doing is buying cheaper eggs (Chocolate is still chocolate afterall) and what I’ve been doing in the weeks leading up to Easter is giving up a few favourite things. I’ve completely given up Easyway (so that’s a significant saving seeing as each of their delicious drinks will set you back $5 a pop) and I’ve gone hunting around Surry Hills (at Central in the City) finding cheap restaurants to eat at when I’m still hungry after munching down my packed lunches at uni. (McDonald’s now sell their garden salads for $2 for those concerned about diet).

For the moment my diet consists of breast pops.

Anyway, I have started planning on selling a few of my things over Facebook for cheap. Mostly just books (I’m an avid reader, you see) and probably other things that I don’t use anymore… probably even one of my guitars. :/

Right now, I’m still trying to convince myself to do it because it really is for the best. I mean, there is absolutely no more space left on my book shelves and selling a couple of things will leave my room with some extra leg room for everything I’ll be buying in Korea! 화이팅~!

Bye Bye Books 😦

Other than that, Saving’s going great! I’ve almost hit the $1000 mark and seeing as I only started saving a month ago, I’m very proud of myself. Also, I GOT THE JOB!! Woohooooo!! Korea, I shall see you soon!

TL;DR?

  • Buy cheap chocolates for Easter.
  • Find cheap restaurants.
  • Sell things you don’t need on Facebook.
  • AND I am now no longer unemployed! (Still a full-time student though).

Major Setback: Pt. 2

Piggy isn't happy.

I’ve been doing so well saving up but some things you just can’t help. Today I bought Big Bang’s new album “Alive”. I bought two copies. One with all of Big Bang on the cover and the other was G-Dragon’s edition. Don’t worry, they’re not both for me! One is for Chantel who is turning 20 in approximately 10 minutes! (Happy Birthday Chantelly Belly! I hope you don’t see this until tomorrow)

Also, Die Antwoord’s concert is next Friday and as I said in my first blog “10 Ways to Save for Korea” they’re one of my Must See concerts of 2012 and I am not going to let myself miss this.

So in the past two days alone I have spent just over $100 … and I have to buy my $30 train ticket tomorrow. Damn.

But on the other hand, I went for my job interview yesterday and I’d have to say it went pretty well! The rates are incredible and if things go well, I’ll have enough for Korea sooner than expected. I don’t want to count my eggs before they’ve hatched though so we’ll just see how it goes and I’m just hoping for the best. 🙂

Anyway, here’s a banana with a face on it.

Omnomnom~!

Welcome to my little (but growing) YG Collection, Alive!

🙂

That’s all for now! Wish me luck for this job!
