Well it has been a snowy, cold, icy week here in St. Louis. I am trying so hard not to complain. I could live in Boston or we could have the winter we had last year when it snowed all.the.time. As of today, there are only 25 days to spring. #havetoholdon
Here are our spending numbers for the week:
Delish $22.25 (Our out meal of the week!)
Spice Shop: $10.74
Total for the week: $80.63
I am happy with this week’s total. Still going strong!
What I wanted to buy this week:
A Car Wash: My goodness the outside of my car is dirty. The sad part is it got really dirty at the beginning of the month, so I have been living with a dirty gray version of my silver car for the entire month. It keeps snowing/sleeting/winter mixing so I guess it would have been a waste of money to wash it.
A fun coffee drink: I really don’t drink coffee anymore, but for some reason I had the desire to visit a coffee shop this week. It must have been some secret Starbucks marketing or Friends reruns. I have no explanation.
A trip to anywhere but here: See 1st part of this post for an explanation
What I plan to buy when this is over:
A car wash #Icantcontinuelikethis
Favorite Links of the Week:
Check out this post on The Busy Budgeter. How about calculating the yearly cost of things and buying them every 3 months? This is something I have always thought about, but never did and I am going to start. As I mentioned in my update last week, I think part of success is shopping less often and reducing the days you spend money. This would definitely do it. As much as I love the Target, having to go in there less would probably be great for my budget.
Love this video from GazelleInTents about how budging has changed their life.
How was your week? Is the weather any better where you live? Just one more week! I will be back with a final update and takeaways!
