No spending, a few more discards

Mildly financially related things I did yesterday:

  • wrapped a paperbackswap book
  • brought lunch of leftover taco meat made into a taco salad
  • cooked dinner--butter chicken and broccoli
  • spent nothing
  • changed the amount for my biweekly automatic transfer from checking to savings. I think I can do another $90 per pay period without feeling the pinch too much.
  • 2 tubes of lipstick: I like how I look wearing lipstick, but I never actually do it. Also, R. doesn't like the taste of lipstick, and I like being kissed
  • one pair of earrings
  • one chain that inevitably gets tangled in my hair
  • many papers related to my novel, as I revise and resolve the issues

More upcoming discards:
  • bicycle
  • Family silver? R. is mildly-to-moderately against me selling this, because he thinks it will appreciate in value over the next fifty years. I disagree, but should probably do more research on the historical trends in silver prices (it's monogrammed, so I probably won't be able to resell it except for the metal value).

I so hear you on the discarding of lipstick. I pared my collection down to a small basket I reach for every morning. Meanwhile, I have a stash of other makeup for "just in case" or dancing. I can do cool looks, but for everyday work, I only need 2 or 3 things.
