I tend to reconcile my budget weekly to ensure that I don’t forget why I was spending but once my finances got under control I stopped posting weekly. As I’m trying to be uber frugal I’ve decided to revisit this habit as it’s a great way to keep me on track.
The first week of April has been crazy!
I’ve spent a lot of money but I’ve also done a lot of things:
- hosted sleepover
- Went to a museum
- Went to a play
- Lunch with a friend
- Breakfast with another
- Celebrated 2 birthdays
I’m still on track to be on/under budget but I do need to pay special attention to:
- eating out: I’ve got one more date and that’s going to have to be it
- entertainment: nothing is planned but I’ve only got a a little bit left in this line
- groceries: I’m on track but need to be cognizant of my spending so menu planning is key
How’s your week been?
