Monday or Tuesday is a good day to review a budget and figure out new ways to trim expenses. You're feeling unusually thrifty, and your eagle eyes will zero in on wasteful spending. Wednesday afternoon, you'll have a chance to strengthen your rapport with a coworker. Don't worry if idle chat by the water cooler has a tinge of gossip, and if your schedule permits, an informal meeting after work might not be a bad idea. Friday before you leave work, you should take the time to reevaluate your approach to a particularly challenging task.
