We drove and went grocery shopping ( $154.81). We got a lot of stuff to stock up on, lots of organic food, and lavender essential oil for cleaning (that alone was $10). We didn't buy anything we didn't NEED and that wasn't healthy since we're still on diets. I've already lost 5lbs, so I have the incentive to continue. It's the bad food that always blows my budget, so by taking some time off pizza, ice cream, coffee and donuts, I'm helping myself achieve two goals.
DH had to go out to help a friend with a tree (long, aggravating story) and he's going to the store to get things we couldn't get at the other one. He better stick to my list!!
(so far, I better not have to take this away!!)
0/12 no drive days
0/15 no spend at all days
0/8 take out/restaurant meals
0/$100 take out/restaurant meals
0/31 turn off the computer nights
$0/$50 mad money
1. DS' first bday and first Christmas. I don't have a plan for spending yet on these things and I need to get one.
2. Christmas itself. I host dinner. We already have the main course, but I need sides and desserts. I need a budget for this.
3. Holiday guests. Usually end up going out to eat or spending more. Need to make sure not to lose sight of my goals in all of this.
Looking forward to December b/c November is not ending well!
