$11.98 photo prints of kids for my desk at work/Dinner out (counting this as our lunch for the week since it was a cheap burger joint for a friend's birthday)
: $54.09 Groceries, McDonalds for DS1 & DH, Scones and coffee for breakfast.
(But Dh bought $9.34 in groceries)
: $80 for the Domperidone (budgeted), $9 for lunch at work, $9 for McDonalds for DH and DS1 when they visited me at work, and $15 for take-n-bake pizza for dinner.
$66.66 for groceries, Dinner out (Indian, spent more than we should. I forget that it's automatically 20% spendier when we don't get take out) $10 for lunch, ordered in because I didn't have time for anything else.
: $84 on Amazon (mostly budgeted treats, playfood for DS, RAM for DH, bottles for baby) $40 for the part to fix my laptop, $120 on DS's diapers, $215 on DH and my anniversary present, and BOTH lunch and dinner out.
: $23.95 on groceries, $18 at Target (in budget!!), $28 at World Market, with an unplanned $6 on McVitties Chocolate Digestives, over which I have no self control whatever.

Yesterday was SCARY and I was really ashamed to come here and post what we'd spent. But when I look back over it the vast majority of the things we got were things we'd put off buying because we were waiting for our tax return (RAM, Computer Parts) or things for the kids. It's that and eating out that are getting us, which is what I expected I'd discover when we started this.
But, it's still a little out of control. SO, New Interim Goal: This work week will be 5 No Spend Days in a row.
3/16 no spending AT ALL days (not one cent, even if it's budgeted)
Eating limited to Friday supper and one weekend lunch. (week 1:
No spending on hobbies, finish the projects I have.
No more than 2x week ordering in lunch at work. (week 1:
