I'm just going to ignore my retirement accounts right now. As for my bank accounts, my saving could be better. I've been spending a lot more than I plan to, in part because I haven't been packing my lunch. It does help that I've been too busy to do as much shopping as I'm usually capable of doing. This past week, I worked both Saturday and Sunday, which was sort of a bummer, but the overtime made it a little sweeter. This month I'm going to work on packing my lunch and implement a NO NEW CLOTHES OR TOILETRIES rule and work toward some of my savings goals.
