I have no title for this

Probably weird but I am LOVING balancing the check book!!!

I write everything out (in very detailed descriptions) add and subtract each transaction and then check the bank account. So far my number has matched the account every time and I get so giddy about it. It's like I won a game or figured out a puzzle every time I check the account balance. I TOTALLY should have started this a very very very long time ago. If you happen to be freakishly irresponsible with money like me and you don't write out every transaction and "balance the checkbook" (which by the way I never write checks... it's just a phrase now I guess) then I HIGHLY recommend it!

Down to business: I spent $12.14 today. If I stick to the $74.43 goal for the week then I've only got $15.23 left to spend. At the original $12 a day goal I've got $24.80 left. As usual I'm starting to cut it close. I think I might (might, might, might) really skimp on dinner tomorrow and just make eggs. We have eggs so I wouldn't have to spend money on dinner. Well, it's one plan... I never stick to my plans, grrr.

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can  : )

I'm not sure how this jumped out of order but this post is from last Thursday I think.


  1. You can definitely do it. Just imagine how good it will feel to stick to the plan you created :)

  2. Eggs are good. We do breakfast once a week. We had waffles, eggs, and smokey links last night.

  3. Yayyyy! Balancing the checkbook can be fun :)
