Oct 1 Took out cash for the next two weeks, putting debit card away

Oct 2 So far, so good

Oct 3 Good stuff. We took out cash for spend and are doing well spreading it out.

Oct 4 Well, dummy over here let the ATM eat our debit card when I took out cash the other day. This will make it really easy not to spend until the new one gets here

No Spend 4/25
Debt Payment $0

Guess what I got yesterday: 2 checks cause I overpaid my RE! I paid totally OOP for treatments and have a "nice" little cc balance to show for it. So I see the envelopes from my RE and think "great NOW how much do they want?". I got 2 checks : totalling $104.20.

Now of course I wanted to treat this as "found money", but I was responsible and deposited right into the bank today. Once it clears I will transfer the money to put towards my cc.

Believe me, I would love nothing better than to use this money for something fun, but I think paying down my debt is just a tad more important.

I thought that this would be the last day that I would have to buy groceries for the next week or two, but my very well meaning dp went in and got cream cheese "spread" (ick) instead of cream cheese for the cheesecake I am bringing to my grandparents place for Thanksgiving . I have to get that and allspice, and hopefully that is it. We are almost out of flour and oats as well, but I can wait for those.

01.
02. $52.91 on a sleep sac and baby proofing supplies
03. $15.58 on 3 springform pans
04.

138.30/400: Groceries
0/50: Gifts
54.45/150: Gas

Another No Spend day for me. I'm running out of "food that I like to eat" though and since I really have NO money for groceries unless I use my CC or borrow from a friend I'll have to have a look at the canned food that I stocked up on and never use. I'm pretty sure that I can make some healthy,tasty and filling with rice and lentils! I don't have any spices,but my roommate won't mind if I borrow some from her and maybe a recepie :


Day 1 rent $150 bus pass $66.25
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4
Day 5

2/10
3/10 £32.10 (household, w/e groceries and fruit)
4/10 £7.20 art supplies

I am cross with the art supply spending, and actually, I think I may cancel my order. I have enough supplies for the art class I am taking - I allowed myself to get swept along thinking that I couldnt possibily manange without a certain type of paint. It is a mixed media class - I can use ANYthing! :


My key is
No Spending

papermoon, I totally go overboard on craft/art supplies too because I love them and I can't resist sometimes!



Oct 1
Oct 2 ($20 in cash budgeted for grocery store)
Oct 3
Oct 4: $60 cash budgeted for weekly grocery store (pretty good for three people eating mostly organic!!) but also .. $5 taco bell -- then, $10 at a church bazaar which was not budgeted but did go 100% to charity so.... ... but it wasn't budgeted or planned so...


Key:

No spend:
Spent money but was planned, needed, or budgeted:
Overspent or spent money that wasn't planned, needed, or budgeted:

Key
: No spending of any kind
: Budget spending
: Unnecessary/out of budget spending

Oct 1: (mostly paid bills to start the month, but I did get coffee/juice while DS and I were out that we didn't need... should've been prepared)
Oct 2: (bought Christmas present and office supplies at a great price
Oct 3: (not only no spend, but an unexpected government payment came in *yay*)
Oct 4:
Oct 5: (bought groceries to supplement what we had in our pantry and use some stuff up this week )

Goal Areas (must not go over)... I reduced/changed some of these as I reworked the budget from last month and closed it out:
0/100: Household flux
17.23/200: Groceries (Week 1: 17.23/40)
4.30/30: Entertainment
0/20: BABiC (the babywearing group I facillitate)
0/50: Baby Supplies (I am trying to get things we need for the baby spread out so it doesn't hit us all at once)
10/40: Special Occasions (buying birthday/Christmas presents)

So for today I am at 31.53/440.00 flux dollars spent

Not off to a great start... I have kept track of every penny, though... so that is a good start.

10/1 $30 impromptu cocktail hour with dh, $30 for sitter
10/2
10/3
10/4 $70 Oktoberfest, $3.99 word search book for ds6
10/5 $4.60 library fines


October goals:
Track every cent spent
Spend within budget only - no nickel/diming myself
Think thrify/frugal
Eat out only: one bfast, one dinner, order in one dinner
Learn to budget monthly for things, rather than just yearly

Ultimate goal:
Stay focused on 6mo emergency fund (1/3 there)

Key:
no spend day or spent within budget only
: not budgeted but necessary
oops

This months planned expected expenditures (outside the basic budget):
$22.55/$25 presents for 2 kids friends bday parties
$60/$60 presents for 3 family birthdays
0/$30 medical copay
$30/$50 sitter
0/$30 2 halloween costumes
0/$? yarn for starting chanukah gifts
0$? new belt, winterboots, slippers, socks, fleece - for me (this should get me through the winter for clothes)

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.

alright!!

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 babbling. i'm enjoying reading all of yours. this is my first challenge.
