Monthly Debrief: June 20118



  •  # Buy nothing days :13
  • # times ate out/purchased take out: 6
  • # activities with loved ones: 10 (I’ve gotten bad at tracking this)
  • $ saved at Costco: ?
  • % over or under budget:7% over budget (best  since February!)


  • This  is the closest I’ve come to sticking to my budget in the year
  • I haven’t felt pressed or as though I’ve been missing out


  • Our 10th anniversary  party is getting expensive! I’ve been able to use savings so far to cover the costs
  • Final kitchen purchases of a curtain rod and bumpers to protect cabinet corners


June is usually my crazy month of overspending. I’m pleased that the overspending isn’t crazy. The places I went overboard were groceries and entertainment. The entertainment was for Father’s Day.


This month was fantastic! I’m aiming to make July a frugal month, while ML & I make some healthier choices. Our goal is to drop a couple pounds each this month and tone up.
