Bookish Life Budget 2015 ~ Mar Check In

Posted April 1, 2015 by Tanya in Book Haul, Budget / 0 Comments


I think I’m getting the hang of this thing called “restraint”. I’ve gotten a few more books than in February, but they were not all ones I paid for, which definitely helped the budget!

This month I actually used up all the credits I had saved up at Audible. I’ve been burning through the audiobooks and it was absolutely painful when they had the 2 for 1 sale this week and I didn’t even have a credit to participate with. I almost bought the extra 3 credit bundle. That would be where that restraint was used! I’m glad I have my April credits, but I don’t know if I’m going to be able to get through the month with just 2 credits. It will be quite the challenge!
