I had decided to have an Uber-frugal January, so I carefully planned all my expenses. However,as Robert Burns knew, the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.
To prepare for my spending this week I went to the restaurant’s website to calculate the amount I would spend. Two things went wrong:
- I made the rookie mistake of not calculating tax and tip
- the menu is outdated
My $50 expense turned into $80.
Both gas and Bunny are currently under budget so if I can lower my grocery spending this week I may be able to maintain my spending.
How’s your week going?
