just checking in
oct 1: $56 walmart (diapers, garbage can, garbage bags, wipes, other necessities....sorry, i do hate walmart but their diapers are the best i've found, and the cheapest)
oct 2: $7 - coffee, pita chips, bananas, yogurt, samosas, and vitamin water (lunch at work + dinner/breakfast for the next day)
oct 3: $1.25 bagel, got a *free* pumpkin spice chai from sbux (yaaaay for old coworkers who give you free coffee!), and went to a burlesque show after work put on by some of the girls i work with, so $10.57 was the total spent for the night...OH! I BROUGHT MY DINNER FROM HOME! so, $11.82 for the day. plus $10.02 on gas. ~~unbudgeted spending: $10
oct 4: $1.25 + $1.60 at the farmers market for grapes and a muffin for breakfast for myself and dd and dd's dad. lunch was pizza, $2.53, and then i think i spent 50 cents on some trail mix for dinner, but then $4.10 for taco bell on the way home.
oct 5: $1.63 for breakfast at work, $0.79 for coffee, then i had a gelato/lunch date with a friend which cost me $2 that i snuck into his pocket as an attempt to split the bill
then, $4 at the cider mill split with dd's dad for fudge, donuts, and cider of course. also, $42 to fill up my gas tank, which should last me at least a week. ~~unbudgeted spending: $4
total spent: $145.24, and $495 for rent
total non-budgeted spending: $14
okay, from this point on i won't detail each day, i'll just give a total like $5 food, and an unbudgeted total with detail if i spent out of my plans.
also, i'd like to thank tazo tea for making vanilla white apricot tea, i love it and it has saved me from morning starbucks runs. i mean, come on...i can practically SEE the coffee shop from my apartment AND my best mom friend works there. however, the *free* coffee comes from MY old store which is a ten minute drive....we do make coffee dates though, myself and dd, and we go to the park and play, so its kind of worth it.
i'm enjoying reading all of yours. this is my first challenge.
