June 16th - budgeted spending thumb.gif $10 thrift store (only things on my list!)

 

I also realized that I didn't get all of the ingredients I need to make chicken noodle soup, so I'm going to have to go back to the store either today or tomorrow.  Gonna try to put that off to the day when I get new tires so that I don't waste a day on just a few little things ;)

Our thread is not as long as usual...sounds like a lot of us are out enjoying summer instead of being on the internet as much. 

 

Good for you!!  Have fun!

That's definitely what I've been doing since I posted last ;)  I'm gonna drop off for the rest of this month as far as tracking goes.  I've been spending a bunch and I have more spending I'm going to be doing over the next week or so.  Maybe I'll mellow out a little bit after that ;)
