I did it! I recorded my spending for 2 weeks in a row. A miracle to be sure!!
My spending for the week totaled $356.25 Last week I spent $281.51. This week was $74.74 more. Off of the top of my head I remember that we bought CDs and CD cases. That was about $40, right there. Also we made a trip to Jungle Jim’s International Market. It is about a 45 minute drive from here, but my 2nd son, M, needs the time driving. I normally wouldn’t count a trip like this because it is more like a field trip/fun time, but I did buy some actual groceries and food for our dinner that night, so I counted it. That was $76.47. Ouch. It’s a good thing we don’t do that trip very often 🙂
Mostly it was just a normal week of spending. Nothing glamorous.
Here’s to another week of keeping track of my expenses.
How about you. What did you do to save money this week?
