October Budget Challenge
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.
