12.31 Errand day. Groceries/ eat out= $55/ $18/ $28 Forgot to record library fines-- 22 DOLLARS!
1.1 No spend. Staying home. Nothing's open. But I'm taking it anyway.
1.2 Happy Veggie for now, because we kept snack and treat purchases to a minimum. Azure Standard order. Co-op stop.
1.3 Stop at Burgerville for dd2--she ate 5 fries, I ate a burger and fries. Oh well. DH took dd1 out for a taco. $20
1.4 Just groceries, but not sure how I'm doing so far.
1.5 No spend. Stayed home.
1.6 Took away my reward for a no-spend because 1/2 of a stewed chicken was wasted, entirely avoidable.
1.7 Hopefully the start to a better week. Making bread; made my pot of smoky-bacon-y soupy beans.
1.8 Even though this was a big spend day, I'm giving myself this Happy Carrot because I stuck to the lists, and the girls stuck to their weekly treat allowance. Only one entirely unplanned but not unwelcome purchase-- a new sudoku book for the girls to share, $6.
1.9 Basic groceries, but they keep coming. Not sure how I'm doing yet.
1.10 Couple of forgotten groceries. Thrift store $30. Wool socks $16. New battery for an old digital camera. Dairy Queen, $13, because I messed up and we drove 40 minutes to what I thought was an open swim at the Y.
1.11 Last of the forgotten groceries. Totaled $203 for the week. Not bad. Could have been waaaaay better. Added another $7 to the FUNfund again. DD1 is really excited--we have saved $24 in 3 weeks.
1.12 No spend
1.14 Haven't been very good packing snacks and lunches. Hrumph! Minor stops for groceries, household stuff like laundry soap and hair ties. Stopped at DQ for their fries, and I was hungry enough to order a meal myself. Finally finished the 2nd pair of mittens from yarn in my yarn drawer.
1.15 Forgot dd1's leotard for gym, bought her another. Told her it was part birthday present so she doesn't get any ideas..... Did well at grocery shopping, keeping the total to $62. I could live with my monthly food bill if I didn't keep making mistakes that add up. Christmas lamps for the living room. Outspent what dh had in mind, but having lived with thrift store lamps and hand-me downs, I was ready for something more permanent. Buying the leo hurt more than buying the lamps! Birthday shopping for dd1's 8th bday.
