February stock up results

February stock up money: $84
Toilet paper
Laundry detergent
Bar soap (I found some on clearance so even though it's not needed I thought it a wise buy)
Gallon of organic milk for Abe
Face soap
Face lotion
Birthday present for my niece
3 pounds of frozen blueberries
2 boxes of girl scout cookies

I'm planning to spend $15 a day this year on everything I purchase. One of my new approaches is to take an average of $3 a day at the beginning of the month and stock up on some of my least favorite things that always seem to ruin my budget (I know, girl scout cookies are not really one of those things). Ideally I'll plan out gifts for the month from this money as well. After I've spent the stock up money that leaves an average of $12 a day for all additional spending.

I'm afraid I'm really going to regret not getting any pet food with the stock up money this month but I think I can make it to March before needing any more. Then I might just have to use all of the March stock funds for pet food... or at least half of it.

Here's to a fabulous month!
