Spending Recap 4/9-4/15Posted: April 16, 2012
Monday $40 Big Lots (will be paid back by guy over a month or month and a half), $4 Wal-Mart
Tuesday no spend day
Wednesday no spend day
Thursday no spend day
Friday $11 Wal-Mart
Saturday $70ish (b) various stores for baby shower, $20 Sonics (p)
Sunday $19 Wal-Mart (b), $7 Brahms (not budgeted for but yummy ice cream ruled), $8 bookstore (b), $5 Wagreens
So only three no spend days this last week and there really should have been four. But, on Monday, I was trying to watch a DVD and there was no sign. We checked out the cords, TV and the DVD player but forgot to check the DVD besides for obvious scratches. We went to Big Lots and bought a DVD player and HDMI cord for $40 and he agreed to pay me that back as it had to come out of the baby shower fund. And we decided it could either be out of his beer money which is $20 every two weeks or I can be nice and just charge him $10 every 2 weeks. It will depend on really if we need it or not.
And some of those Wal-Mart trips were budgeted for or will at least help out for next grocery trip as I picked up some things that I can now knock off the list. (One of those being salad fixings as we do try to have a salad fairly often—they are filling, healthy and go with most meals which is a plus)
On Saturday, I spent the day with the guy’s mom getting everything pretty much finalized for the baby shower. Basically everything is done except for a few minor details that can’t be really done until closer to the date. And that’s not until the 19th of May—so I’m looking forward to it.
Lastly, if you look over to the side you’ll see that instead of saying Medical Bill #x, you’ll now see it says “Student Loan”. We decided that instead of doing the medical bills, we are going to start trying to pay down his student loan. It’s in a bad status as well but not near as big as mine so we are hoping to get it paid of fairly quickly.
How was your week?
