Manhattan Temptations

Ohhhhhhhh the temptation of working in Manhattan!! Lunch on average cost $6.00 and this is on the lower end. When I step off the train I have the temptation of Starbucks and all the restaurants. Then there are the stores filled with clothes, from the low end to the high end. Lawdyyyy!! I cannot roam around during lunch hour without being tempted by everything.

The one good thing is that I can people watch. As a pf blogger, I find myself wondering how many of the people shopping during their lunch hour are in debt to their eyeballs. The lines in the clothing stores around my office are packed during the lunch rush. I see colleagues buying lunch everyday, and all I can think is wow. I am not judging, for all I know they can be debt free. Just can't help but wonder.

This week was good, I only bought lunch once. Next week I will keeping up that trend. Now if only I can get a damn seat on the damn train I would be happy.

I am waiting on lunch to finish cooking. Yeah!! go me, Single Ma I will Fedex your portion...LOL

Brown Bagging It

Starting on Monday...well maybe Tuesday I need to take my lunch to work.

I would like ideas from those who take their lunch to work. What are some of your favorites to take?

I know the left over dinner from the night before is usually standard for some. However, as a single person who hardly makes anything substancial for dinner (read cereal or lean cuisine) that is not a ver good option.

The payment on one of my sale was direct deposited to my account. Love ittttt!
This is the easiest money I have made in a long time, and it did not take much of my time.

I made a sale....caching

I have made two sales since listing my books on This is $62.00 that I now have that I did not have before. Love it....not to mention I am cleaning out my closet and having more room at the same time.

Am back

I took a few days off to get my head together. Am back. Not much to report on financially except that I need to get back on the bandwagon. I fell off for those few tumultuous emotionally draining days.
