Went to Half-Price Books and Movie Trading Co today, and got $101 for a bunch of books, DVDs and CDs I never use anymore. Not too shabby. And of course, since we were in the area, Catherine and I had to go to Ikea, where I bought another Benno shelf to go with the one dad bought me for my birthday, since the one shelf still isn't enough space for all my DVDs. I have a ton of TV shows on DVD. I watch them all, I swear!
This was followed by a belated birthday dinner with Sara and Geoffrey, which was of course pleasant. We went to P.F. Chang's, which I can't remember going to in so long. I had the orange chicken, which was fucking DELICIOUS, if rather pricey.
Still hurting for money, but things aren't as bad now that I'm beginning to learn how to curb my spending. Going to Ikea was a great test of that - I've been looking for a place to store my magazines and almost bought a small $60 drawer unit until I realized I could just condense the clothes in my dresser at home to make room to store the magazines on the bottom shelves. Haven't been spending much online lately either, except for one incident when I realized I never bought the Napoleon Dynamite 2-disc set on DVD and just HAD to have it. It was only $20 thanks to my B&N discount, so whatever. I've also got a few auctions going on eBay which should bring in an extra $60 at least, and Lindsay is buying my Alanis Morissette concert tickets (we decided not to go anyway.) Looks like everything's looking up, money-wise.
