Box Color Looks Great!

March 28th, 2009 at 11:23 pm

I did it! I colored my own hair tonight and it looks great. The box of color costs me about $7.00 vs. a visit to my hair stylist which costs $125 (which includes hair cut, color, shampoo, blow dry, and tip). I usually get a cut and color three times a year. I figure I could color my own hair and get a hair cut every six months (I have a very simple hair cut) and save at least $200 a year. Woo-hoo! Thanks Amber!

I received my federal tax refund on Friday. The money went directly into my savings to repay the money for my property taxes and my FIL's property taxes. I don't know how long it will take to receive my state tax refund as California is having such financial problems, but hopefully it won't be too much longer.

I didn't save any of my allowance this week. I had to go out of town for work and spent the majority of the money in airports or for meals. My per-diem will cover all of my expenses for the trip and give me an extra $20. I had to fly out to the East Coast for a meeting and made a quick turnaround so I wouldn't have to fly back today. It took a lot out of me with the flights and the time change. I'm glad that I'm home with the family.

I want to thank everyone on the SA Blogs. At the end of this month, I will be about 35% of the way to my first savings goal. I've enjoyed reading everyone's blogs. Your words have inspired me and kept me on track. Again, my thanks.

Hope you have a great week and good luck on your savings goals.
