I am plugging away at this No Month Spending Challenge. Some days are harder than others. On days when I am tired and don’t want to cook, I am tempted to get the take out menu. This past week, we did pretty darn good in that department. The kids and I spent $29 on Wednesday. On the weekend we only spent $48. Unfortunately, we also had some unexpected expenses like prescriptions for our dog. A whopping $168. Then, my car has been leaking power steering fluid and we had to fix for $210. Luckily, I have a miscellaneous savings account where things like this come out of.
I also managed to go into the grocery store-twice-and only get what I needed. I had to tell myself to not look and go straight to the dairy case.
Overall, we have spent $228 on food related expenses which might seem too much, but by this time in August we had spent over $800 so that to me is amazing.
