Week 24 Wrap Up and the First STUFF Purge

Day 169 of $12 a day. We've paid off $2217.16 of credit card debt this year.

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.


  1. We have a busy weekend too... Tis the season! ;) You did great with your budget!! Awesome! The house does look MUCH better! Amazing what a coat of paint will do!!! ;)

  2. I wish I could have a budget like yours but I can't think that hard! You are doing great!

  3. Thanks! I'm trying so hard to get things into shape. My goodness it's hard work but I'm SOOOO happy to be doing it.
