So my girl Carla is doing an October Budget Challenge. I jumped at the chance to join but the only think that I can think of anything other than stay under budget.
This will be rather difficult this month.
Tomorrow I am driving my mother to run a marathon in NY. More on that when I return. My girls are coming with us and it’s Diva’s birthday on Sunday … I already have a gift for her but we always go out for dinner so there will be that.
Next weekend I will be going on a business trip to Denver, CO. My first with this company. I am not really looking forward to it. I leave early Thursday morning and come back late Sunday night. I have never been to Colorado before and hope I have time to take in a couple of points of interest or good restaurants. My girls are going to stay with my BFF, so I will need to leave them some money. Not sure how much will be sufficient.
There are a couple of meals out with friends scheduled.
I have been avoiding the grocery store in my attempt to use up what we have at home. But lack of planning has tempted me twice to just bring home takeout. I held strong so far.
It’s going to be a real challenge, but I’m up for it.

You do marathons ?
Oh no not me, my Mom.
oh sorry miss read your mother*
I have not been so bold yet.
I’m doing the October challenge too and i is to eliminate all small debts and my credit card (6500) but my puppy just fell very sick and
Oh no, sick animals are not very nice to deal with. I hope your fur baby gets better soon.
I hear ya… for me the food costs are doing us in. Because I have a large family, one dinner ends up costing $20+ if we have a half decent meal with meat. Nobody here is big on beans, all carnivores, so not sure how to keep that cost down with the increasing food costs. Sounds like you have a busy month ahead of you though! Good luck with the challenge!
Yes these rising food costs are going to be the challenge for us all. Might need to figure out how to grow my own. 😉
