My Autistic Life … my journey each day | Life is like a blog, everyday you write a new story

December 2nd, 2017

A new month has started yesterday and so does this Blogmas. Well, as you might have seen on my Twitter or on my blog I kind of like clothes and shoes a lot. Besides that I’m curently building my own house here in Belgium (euhm people are doing it for me 😉 ).

With all the cost I have with moving in February I need a good plan for my upcoming budget.

Planning my budget with an app on my iPhone doesn’t work for me. I need something to hold to, something where I can draw on, somenthing that I really have in my hand.

For weeks now I have in mind of doing this but I always said “I’ll do that tomorrow”. Honestly that day ‘tomorrow’ never came. *shame on me*

Today is the day !

Now it’s the time to start working on a budgetplanner that really works for me. You may not like the lay-out of my plan, but I guess that this will work for me.

Time for a pink notebook, because I just adore pink 😉

After a long day at work and feeling really tired I found the energy to make me a budgetplanner.

Here are some pictures of how I’m making my budgetplanner. At this moment it’s not finished yet, but the idea is on paper and I can work with it.

After creating a lay-out I started to fill in all the money I earn each month and all my expenses on the other side of the paper.

Most monthly expenses I know like the money I have to pay for my house, the gas, the electricity, my monthly appointment with my psychiatrist and psychologist (which I need) and medication.

What’s left I need to buy other bills, pay for food, pay for catfood (and cattoys), and clothes/shoes. So many budget is not left.

I work a parttime job now because of my autism I can’t work a fulltime job at this moment (and maybe never again). So I lost quite a big amount of money every month buy working parttime and doing a job as a shoeseller insteat of an accountant.

Living on my own will be a big step, but it will be a lot of counting my money and making budget for things I want to buy. Insteat of just buying what I like whenever I want/need it.

It’s so hard living in Belgium with an disorder that makes you only work a partime job and not having an extra support. I’ve tried a fulltime job for  years but I was always so sick because of all the stress and the public transport to work. Now I have a job close to me, which I like very much … AND I can talk about shoes every minute of my workday. I’m not a prisoner of my job anymore. Besides I feel great, my future life will be on a budget.

Payday is on monday and then the counting will start. I have some great tips received when I was asking for help for spending less money.

Leaving my cards at home, only paying with cash, and writing everything down.

But it’s Christmas soon?

Christmas in my family will be a sad period so we will not spending a lot of money (it will be the first Christmas without my grandma). As we will not give presents to a lot of family, I will give myself a little present. Something that will get me through the Holiday weeks.

So this Christmas I will only spend 96 EUR for a pair of boots I wanted since summer. They are priced 120 EUR in store but I have a discount as a member of the team.

Maybe you should think, ‘why not saving those 96 EUR insteat of buying boots’? But that’s the autistic me that is talking of taking the boots because I really wanted them for months now. I’ve been brave over the weeks/months and not bought them the first time I saw them online.

AND

I always find good shoes/boots in fall or winter season. When it’s spring or summer I can only wear my Converse All Stars or Vans. Shoes like sandals are horrible for this autistic girl.

Birthday is coming tooooo

Oh yess my birthday is coming in January, the month before I’m going to move to my new house. For my birthday I already know what I want … new UGG mini boots (in pink) for in my new house. My stairway will not be finished when I’m going to move, so I need some good comfy shoes for in the house.

I really wanted these for a few weeks now, so that will be a hudge thing in my budgetplanner for next month. Still hoping for a few EUR for NewYear (we give presents on NewYears day too). Oh and with a discount from work, it will not be that shocking !

These are the ones …

More tips?

Do you have more tips about using a budgetplanner that works? Or do you have a picture of a great budgetplanner (on paper) that you use?

Please no negative reactions about saving the money for the shoes for something else. Having autism is hard if your plans (things you want for a long time) are not coming true.

Thanks!  Love Lucy xx
