This week was a little busy. We took the truck over to Chuck’s Speed and RV and dropped it off for some custom exhaust work. Got a car at Enterprise Leasing for the day. Got an ultrasound done on my arm (NO, I haven’t heard from the doctor yet!). And worked 5 days at the Christmas tree lot.
We took out the usual $300 from our checking account last Monday. Went out to breakfast 4 times: Once at Cracker Barrel, once at Fast Eddie’s, and twice at Denney’s. Picked up lunch once at Taco Bell, mmmm. And had a treat at Coldstone Creamery. If we had stayed out of there we would have made it under budget. Oh well, life needs ice cream once in a while.
The bottom line this week: We still had $13.35 in our pockets, but we used the debit card once at Fry’s when we picked up milk and cereal, for $23.99. So, for the week, we are over budget by $10.64. But for the 6 week period since we started doing Cash Monday, we are under the budget by $89.41. Not bad. If you guys know how much self control this took, you would be cheering so loud I could hear you all the way out here to Phoenix!
