Hoping for fewer than the 13 Devil Dude-icons I earned for August!
2 Just necessities. Groceries.
3 Forgotten groceries.
4 Yeowch! Bigtime-Budget-Buster.
Ugh. Vacuum cleaner blew just about the most expensive part to replace, so I bought a newer trade-in for $30 more than the repair price. Well, I'm definitely using the thrift stores and consignment for some clothes for the girls I was planning on buying new--just a handful, but that totally blew any budget we might have had. I couldn't really have avoided this. I need a vacuum for work, I use my vacuum a lot at home. I know I should buy cheaper vacuums, but this is ultra quiet and has HEPA filter, which we need. The part that blew out of my "old" vac usually lasts the life of the vacuum, but, well, not all the time apparently. Glad I discovered the world of trade-ins. I love it for computers, so why not vacuums?
Anyway, I still gave myself my worst "award" for today, even though I don't know what else I could do.
