Yesterday ends week 24 of this fun spending/ saving/ paying off debt adventure. The total spending for week 24 came to $78.95 ($11.28 a day). I'm totally thrilled to have come in under $84 for two weeks in a row but I would love to have met the $68.09 mark. If I spend $10.86 under budget this week then I will have caught this month back up. So, that's the new goal.
I got rid of the 14 items (15 actually) that I had hoped to purge this week. I found 15 magazines that we don't need and I gave them to my husband's step day who LOVES to read. Mission accomplished. I glanced over my goals for this month and I'm in sorry shape. I have not been working out, I have not started planning the yard sale, I have not made anything, I haven't read anything, and no one's invited me to a bon-fire yet : ( I did clean the house and paint the foundation on the house. I should probably have listed those with the goals just so I'd have something to check off.
|I love the before and after on this one... we probably should have painted a LONG time ago|
In addition, I really need to get my rear in gear and start crafting/ thinking/ making some stuff for the many upcoming events. Father's day is this weekend (oh my goodness it's tomorrow) as well as my niece and nephews combined b-day party. Next weekend I'm taking my niece to a princess party (I know I'm going to have to supply the birthday gift on that one) and it's my dad's b-day next weekend as well... oh and I've an open house to go to. Wowwy.
I'm exhausted now just thinking about it.
