Time for the budget report already!? We did a very good job this week–we still have $37.90 in our pockets after a very busy week. We went to breakfast twice at the 5&Diner, lunch once at a “not so good” Mexican restaurant, another lunch at Armando’s Mexican Restaurant; went through the drive through at McDonald’s twice, and Taco Bell once. I bought myself a new scarf while I was out Christmas shopping (the Christmas shopping money came out of another pile of money. Remember, our weekly $300 is for our normal, everyday living expenses, like groceries, fuel for the truck, going out to eat, sightseeing and such as that. And yes, I set budgets for everything.) FabGrandpa bought himself his favorite magazine and an expresso at the book store. And he picked up some lottery ticket scratchers and some ice cream for me while he was out and about one day.
So to recap, we still have the $37.90 in our pockets, making us under budget for this week. For the entire 7 week period, we are under budget by $127.31. So far, so good.
