I haven’t spent rashly but somehow we’re halfway through the month and I only have $33 left in the budget. As I’ve paid all bills and contributed to savings this isn’t as awful as it sounds. Here’s what’s coming up:
- Beach Date with my sister
- Bubble tea date with former bandmate
- Coffee visit with girl friends
- My favourite kid is coming for a sleepover
I’m not sure how $33 is going to stretch that far and I don’t want to cancel any of these events.
I’m taking snacks to share for the beach date but if we end up stopping for dinner there is no way I can opt out of the that activity. The 2 visits with friends can be kept, I believe, to a total of $15.
The kid may be my biggest challenge. He eats like crazy so having him over is going to require a grocery run. I’m going to have to fill up on fruits, vegetables, cheese, deli meat and crackers.
How’s your monthly budget coming?
