I was on a “no spending” streak for the past 5 days.
I was very low on gas and had enough to get me to work and back. My aunt asked me to take her grocery shopping today. I did not have enough gas for that. 😦 So while my next planned expense was supposed to be lunch tomorrow, I bought gas today. And since I bought gas I also spent money on postage. A task I was delaying until I broke my fiscal fast.
Then my aunt cancelled because it’s snowing.
This week-end is looking like a spendy one. 😦 I am out of a lot of staples. I am going to try to “make do” until the end of the month. I still have $130 in my grocery budget.
I finally added categories to my hexie budget wallet. Sunday I will start the week and see how it goes.
My weekly spending looks like this:
Entertainment/Eating out $40
Everything else $30
For a grand total of $190/week.
I think I can make it work.
