Spending Recap May 6th-May 13th

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?

    Congratulations on getting engaged! That’s awesome news! You must be very excited. How on earth do you make a candy bar last 4 days though?! 4 minutes is a lifetime for me.

    • bogofdebt says:

      Thanks! And because I’ve been working out my appetite has changed. I eat about 1/4 of the candy bar and am good for awhile. Otherwise it’s too sweet for me. Trust me, my guy wanted to eat my candy bar because his lasted about 4 minutes as well.

      Me too! He persuaded me that I needed an engagement ring and I said that we could budget for it but I won’t ask the exact price. Seemed to work out!
