There were just 3 days left to the end of the month and I had $20 still available in discretionary spending. I’ll take you on the rollercoaster ride of this $20.
It isn’t bad. I mean loads can be done for less than $20. It’s not great when I had anticipated having $50 to play with. On the other hand, I had paid for a $40 night out using my budget rather than my fun fund. So really it means this should have been $10.
In that light, $20 is cause for a celebration!
Here’s what I needed that twenty to do:
- Buy groceries for the start of the week
- Buy a cup of tea with a friend
First stop groceries. I figured out what I would like to make and checked the flyers. For $14 this was my haul.
Not bad at all! I’m especially pleased that I was also able to add to the hosting stockpile (soft drink). All the rest are items to be consumed/ included in a recipe by Tuesday.
That leaves me with $6 to cover tea. I think that I’m going to make it and it feels good!
