Spending Recap May 6th-May 13thPosted: May 14, 2012
Monday no spend day
Tuesday $ 35 Wal-Mart ($5 was donated though)
Wednesday $210 car repair (b!!!)
Thursday no spend day
Friday $13 Brahms
Saturday $xxx ring for me (I’m not really supposed to know so I just know that it was budgeted for!), $16 Champagne (not budgeted for at all but I’m only planning on getting engaged once so I’m okay with it)
Sunday $5 Gas store donuts
So it’s truly official now! I’m engaged and extremely excited! I honestly didn’t care that we spend the $16 on champagne on Saturday—it was really good and I think for a great cause. (Okay I might be a little biased there but so what?)
And I absolutely love Wednesday’s spending note—it was budgeted for. It didn’t break my wallet or my sanity and I may have danced a happy dance when I looked at the bank book this weekend. No overdrafts or having to chose between bills. So yeah, very cool in my books.
And some of that spending at Wal-Mart was for gift wrap and stuff for the baby shower. No excuses but I found some really pretty wrapping paper. That part was actually budgeted for though. I did pick up a candy bar (and it lasted me 4 days so I effectively paid 25 cents a day for a piece of candy bar. Not too bad right? And of course milk was bought—as it was at Brahms. Seriously we go through milk like crazy. I blame the guy (fiancé!!) as I am not a huge fan of milk and will begrudgingly drink it. The weird part is I love cheese, yogurt and ice cream—just not milk.
Sunday I helped mostly decorate for the upcoming baby shower and that took most of the day. I didn’t even go swimming! But this Saturday I think it will be so worth it just to see the mom to be’s face!
How was your weekend?
