Remember that upswing?
Last month I did great with spending.
This month I was/ am hoping to ride out the $17.76 daily average.
Average daily spending for 2015: $18.47
That leaves $149.70 left to spend this month in order to hit my goal.
The secret to my overspending is that I've been buying lots of organic this month, still finding sales and getting store brand items BUT organic spikes the cost no matter. Sigh.
OH, and I just spent $24.95 on coffee grounds. I earned a $5 store reward by doing so and saved $10 on the purchase and it was coffee I really enjoy. Lets just say I'm stocked up on good grounds now so I'm not going to have be buying the cheap stuff and filling it full of flavored creamer to mask the cheap coffee taste. I'd say that's a win win.
In other news our backyard carrots are getting really close to their first thinning. We've been picking a few splendidly delicious strawberries from our little pots each day for the past week about. The tomato plants all have the tiniest of tiny clusters of the first tomato flowers. They're not flowers yet; just little green specks but it's just so exciting! At least I have some very low cost organic food growing in our yard. That's a plus.
