Week 2: November 2017

I was really good this week.  I didn’t spend a dime, until yesterday. Then I spent. Boy did I spend. I blew through my grocery budget but I’m not mad though it will mean a that I do need to behave myself.

Here’s what I spent this week:

Groceries 143.96
Entertainment 52.08
Gifts 212.91
Misc 9.25

Shocking but when I break it down it’s less so. The grocery line includes meals for 2 weeks (fingers crossed), hors d’oeuvres for holiday entertaining, and items for our anniversary date night. Entertainment is the gift we gave ourselves for our anniversary, Chromecast which allows us to stream from our phone to TV. It’s definitely a good investment for us. The gifts are for 11 people which makes the number go from shocking to high five worthy.  The Misc. line was used for pharmacy purchases.

While each of the purchases makes sense it doesn’t negate that I need to be diligent this month. As the month can feel long, I’m just going to focus on this week. This week I will:

  • not eat out
  • Stay on top of my menu planning
  • Only purchase gifts that are on the list

I hope your week is off to a great start!
