May, Oh My

Did someone say they'd like to come in under a $19 a day average for May? Oh, yeah, that was me.

Average daily spending for May: $20.55

Grumble, grumble, grrr! I'd like to go on and on about why I spent so much... but nah, no point. I definitely need to reign in work spending again. I bet I bought 15 cokes while working this month. My hours picked up and my resolve dropped to the floor. That's $25 alone in pop. Just the coke probably raised my daily average for the month a whole $1. Stupid Coke. I also bought a considerable amount of food while working; a pre-made sandwich here and a box of crackers there will add up pretty fast. Back to basics: bring food to work!

June WILL be better! We're stocked up on cat food and cat litter (at least for June). I probably need to buy a bag of dog food but at present we do have a full one. I think we're good on toilet paper and maybe have enough laundry detergent for the month. I'm not planning on buying any gardening stuffs this month. If I just don't buy food at work but spend the same way I did in May I would probably be closer to $18 a day. I can totally get closer to $15 a day this month (my original goal for 2014). Yep.

With 9 days off the record
Average daily spending for 2014: $18.57
31 NO SPEND days (horrible, I know)


  1. I'd benefit from "back to basics" when it comes to bringing food to work, too. We can do it!

    1. Two days out of six so far I've bought something. That's pretty good right? I mean at least it wasn't 6 out of 6 :-)
