I ate out the other night for dinner. Shhh don’t be mad. I went to Qdoba with friends and I miss eating dinner with them! We’re all on a food budget right now, so it’s not like I’m feeling left out though. I’m glad they are all watching their spending also, because this makes it easier for all of us. My total was around $6.45 I think, so pretty cheap for dinner!
Oh yeah I also forgot I bought new hair products the other day because my hair is so frizzy from my perm. I like my wave perm, I’m just starting to kind of miss my straight, non-frizzy hair. I do like having curly hair though, I just feel like I’m running out of hair style ideas. Any ideas? Also, what do you put in your hair to tame frizziness? And one last question about hair. If you’ve ever gotten a perm, will my hair ever be straight in about 4-5 months or do I have to wait until it’s fully grown out?
Our spending has been good. The BF cannot, I repeat CANNOT, let go of his crazy daily Lion’s Choice habit. It’s only $3.24 a day, but he gets it everyday, so of course this adds up! That $3.24 a day is pretty much the only thing we spend everyday though, as I’m only going grocery shopping every 2 weeks.

Thanks for your comment at Pounds4Pennies. I am your newest follower. Let me know if you ever need help with finance questions. I have always wanted to help people get out of debt with finance problems. I have been pretty broke at a time or two and made my two cents stretch to $2.00. It is amazing what you can do when you really try.

nice and cheap for a dinner out. Not to shabby!to keep my hair from frizzing, I will put a little bit of lotion on my hands and rub it in. When it is mostly rubbed in, I will rub it over my hair to tame fly aways and frizzies. It works wonders when I am out of product or at work.

Ive heard Qdoba is good but have never tried it. That's a great price for dinner though! Sorry, I have always had curly/kinky hair so have no idea what straight hair is even like :I
One of my managers (who has very short hair) does a perm about once a year. It seems to wear off quickly, and then her hair returns to straight. I think that once it has come low enough, you can just blowdry it back to straight and keep some of the volume from the perm without all the curls. But that may be something to ask your stylist. Good job on the dinner tab!

Thanks for following my blog! I love personal finance blogs, I'm definitely following yours now!I love Qdoba. Love it. I think only spending $6 at Qdoba shows a lot of restraint, I spend way more… I can't help myself!
Your hair will probably need to grow out to be completely straight again, but the curls will relax more over time. I personally really liked my hair straight a lot more when it had a perm because it adds texture and body. So if you want it straight, just run a straightening iron through it – you might really like the results! I would try a straightening cream or Frizzease serum.
