I overspent at Whole Foods yesterday, though most of it was from stocking up to catch a really good sale and case discount. I'll stretch the overage over the next few pay periods and pay off the "debt" that way. I also agreed to get their really good seafood soups for a takeout lunch because the kids chipped in for it, but still, it was money I didn't need to spend. I also picked up some more leggings for my oldest, who's between sizes in her favorite yoga pants right now, so leggings are working best for pretty much everything. My intentionally frugal activities were that I combined several errands into one, even though I really didn't want to, and I held off from buying gifts unnecessarily (party guilt!) for a "no gifts" party.
Today was a no-spend, eat-at-home day, though I didn't manage a frugal activity (I did make bone broth though!).
Tomorrow we'll need to go to Michael's to buy supplies for co-op Valentines and a crafting party, but the kids have gift cards, and with some proper planning, I'll avoid having to buy snacks during the long drive to our outing.
No unplanned/unbudgeted spending:
Ate at home all day:
Did something mindfully frugal:
No-unbudgeted-spending days: 3/15
2/1: Bought lunch for kids at co-op because I didn't leave enough time to pack stuff *sigh*
2/2: Bought snacks and drinks for kids at art class because I didn't leave enough time to pack stuff *sigh*
2/3: Only bought a few groceries and necessary garden supplies (grow light bulbs, seed starting supplies, spring is coming, woohoo!). Funds for both came out of the appropriate budget categories.
2/5: Overspent at Whole Foods, though most of it was from stocking up to catch a really good sale and case discount.
