I'm spending more than I was when I WASN'T writing it down every day. I'm so frustrated. I feel like I'm never going to get ahead, and I'm not saving anything. It's all little tiny spends too, like less than $5.
10/1: $56 necessities
10/2: $7 food
10/3: $1.82 food, brought lunch from home, $10 burlesque show, $10 gas
10/4: $2.85 farmers market, $2.53 lunch, $4 taco bell
10/5: $2.42 coffee and breakfast, $2 stuck in a friends pocket for a gelato/lunch date, $4 cider mill, $42 gas
10/6: $3.52 lunch, $1.58 coffee (but i paid in change! and used my own cup!)
10/7: $27 at meijer (which included a $7 dress and bagels, the rest was plants which was on my list of things to get this month), $20 at joanns. $60 ATM which got me my ani ticket, a tshirt, and some bucks left over. also, $10 diapers because i forgot to pack some for dd while she was at grandma's.
10/8: $8 plants and soda at ikea. returned stuff at joanns, $17.47 back on credit card.
10/9: used my gift card for groceries and only spent about $5 out of pocket..also $4.76 for panera for dinner for myself and grace.
10/10: $4.19 food, $1.35 juice, $26.56 to fill up my gas tank because it was $2.99/gal! its now down to $2.85 i think.
10/11: $2.60 coffee, plus $10.50 post office because i sold something on etsy and the stupid package was never picked up, it was sent back to me and technically i only spent $5 on shipping because we split it, but then i bought $3 rose quarz plugs (second hand and needed)...and the other $2 is still in my paypal account. plus, i'm sure i bought food and coffee at work like i always do, so we'll just say $5 since i can't find my receipt.
10/12: $4.15 food AND coffee- i remembered that one, because it was less than $5 and i also brought my lunch but forgot about it...oops. so, homemade lunch was actually dinner. not bad.
10/13: $3.68 taco bell
and $11.47 thrift store, for two skirts and a dress...planning on listing them on etsy.
this is ridiculous. i can make more of my own food. i just never have time, and i'm tired
and i probably complain too much as well.
