New beginnings to a more financially savvy me....

Well, I've decided now that I've finished my studies, I should really work hard to be more financially independent from my parents. I'm ecstatic of course about my new employment as a research assistant and I thought from that job and the one from Wool Baa, I could start saving. Have a real savings account that will grow and grow....

Despite having the business background (officially now), I tend to be a bit weak on the financial side of things especially on my own finances... :P So I decided to purchase a book that will help me to get started. ^^

Here's what I got:



But then..... I also got these on the way...;;^^

Well, so much for saving money... I guess I can always knit my own garments. ;;^^

Gosh Jen ! So many books, i hope they are good investments.. god, what was i thinking ?? knitting books are always good investments! Time to be frugal & knit our own garments or buy good jackets that will last thru the years, in style of course..
