Week 9... not sure what happened to 8

I found a little time today to go over the budget and pay some bills. It was nice to see the electric and gas bill a bit lower than I'd budgeted for the month. Another super great bonus: people from church have been bringing meals over every now and again. There's definitely no time or energy around here for cooking (or shopping). Learning to be a parent to a new little person who's learning how to be alive is quite the adventure.

Last week despite not paying one bit of attention to our spending we only went 94 cents over budget. I'm stoked about that. I haven't been able to add my purchases to the 2012 purchases because I have not been paying any attention/ keeping track. So far the spending for the year has come out to $13.93 a day. I've managed to get it down a little. Yay!
