We spent way too much yesterday. It was just the few extras. My husband decided on steak for dinner. We practically NEVER eat steak (actually we don't even eat beef). When we do we always get if from the little local meat shop down the road instead of getting it from the grocery store. So it's just plain expensive. The problem with yesterdays spend though was the little extras. For lunch I stopped at McD's for an iced mocha (which cost considerably more than I was expecting and I still got it anyway). Probably shouldn't do that again. When my husband picked up the meat he spent a few dollars on turkey jerky as well. Seriously the little extras slam us every time.
Spending tally: with only $25.81 left for the week in order to meet my $68.09 goal we spent $20.20 in ONE day. I've $5.61 left in the budget for the next two days and there's not any food in the house. I think we'll be eating eggs for dinner tonite but I don't think I'm quite going to make the $68.09 budget goal. Pretty safe to say I'll still be way under the $12 a day average for this week though. I'm happy with that.
Wishing everyone a splendid Thursday!!! I like Thursdays. They're so close to Fridays which are pretty great because they precede Saturdays : ) Yep
