I’m a big one on investments.
I’m always saying to the hubby, “This will be a great investment.” 😀
He’s usually looking at me like…
Really, and just how are these hanging baskets going to be a great investment, and then of course I have to come up with something witty like…
Don’t see these as empty old flower hanging baskets dear, envision them after I’ve cleaned them up a bit and filled them with beautiful flowers and have them hanging in front of the house in the spring. Won’t that look beautiful? They will lift your spirits after a hard day at work and greet you in the morning to prepare you for a new day. 😀
…Besides I usually buy most everything on sale, at yard sales, or at thrift stores…I love me a deal.
So, all that to say. I decided to start keeping a tally of all the money I spend on my writing and illustrating.
I can be a bit hyper focused on money….Ok, a Lot hyper focused on money. I most definitely don’t want to get all freaky-deaky-do. Especially cause the hubby doesn’t want me to get all weird about the cost of everything. He says if I’m happy, he’s happy. Love ya Babe. 😀
Buuuuut, I also want to be Responsible…Ugh! I hate that grown-up word. Pleh!
I’d just like to have a running total for my own benefit.
I feel like then I can be wary that my hobby doesn’t turn into the Blob sucking up everything in its path! 😮
Ok, so here’s the sitch… I’m trying to decide if I should keep just totals of what supplies I buy…like art supplies, notebooks, research books, workshop costs, etc…
Or if I should also include any money I spend on food and gas going to writers workshops and my writers group every week.
I don’t want to be too Crazy, but I want to be fair in my totals.
Do any of you out there in Internet land keep a total of your writing costs?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

P.S.- On the flip side, are there any of you out here in Internet land that do Not keep a total of your writing cost? Would you be willing to chime in on my deliberations? Leave me a line or four in the comment box.
Happy Coin Counting 😀
