Urgh! My DS worked and saved and paid for a pair of Heelies. Even though we measured his feet and ordered according to the size chart, they are too small! And there has been much drama since the next size in the same color is not available and then there is a price jump to a different color scheme.
Such hard lessons for a 9 yr old.
We are sending them back.

Welcome Michy5!
Groceries don't really count as spending. Over buying maybe. Good job on a two day $0
@Nazsmum :)

DH to the rescue! He took DS to the mall, and got a pair of Heelies. They were more $, but since DH was so motivated he is already working to pay off the difference.

This month has been full of changes. Mostly good.
$$$ socked away into savings.
$35 per month to sponsor a child. Several years ago DH was on his way to an interview for a job ( our start up had completely failed and we were on month 4 of unemployment). A woman stopped him and asked him to sponsor a kid from Colombia. He told her if he got the job, he would come back and sign up. He did! We still sponsor that little boy. Since DH got a raise recently, I felt it was time to add a kid. :)

$$$$ I need fillings and a porcelain crown. I scheduled it for March, so I need to set some money aside. Got to be on top of our spending so I can pay cash and not stress!
I'm thinking ahead tonight and pulling together a hangry box for tommorow. ( Thanks Moominmama for the idea) Between class and an extra meeting we have, I will need to curb temptation!

Ladies - My car needs lots of work. In all it is going to be about $1000. Not sure what to do. If we get a new car that will be hard. The good thing is that doing this will get me in a good point to keep the car. Let see...

@Nazsmum

I have not been doing so great, when I was sick for 4 days my routine and tasks fell so behind, and when that happens I'm not prepared foodwise.

However, getting notifications is such an inspiration to get me on track again.

@VsAngela Sorry you were ill. That sure puts a wrench in the works. Keep trying! That's what we all are doing. :)

We added an art class for all 3 kids to our schedule. $125 per kid for the semester. It only sort of counts in my book since it is "school". Oh! I successfully used the hangry box 2 days this week! yay for little victories.

We are going to Thai food tonight, since it is DD2's birthday. I would estimate about $70. There will be leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

I did get party stuff via the thrift store this month, so February is a NO THRIFT STORE month goal for me. It's a short month, I can do it. :serious:
@Nazsmum Sorry to hear about your car! This isn't the one you got last year, is it?

$7.97. Simplicity patterns are $.99. I scored some historical fashion patterns I've been wanting. Saved $164.68!
$10 trench coat for DD1. I just couldn't pull the trigger for $58 at Old Navy. Found one today when I stopped in at a thrift store. ( I know! It's not February yet.) Lol
