It's hard to believe but we only have 1 week left until the end of the month. It's time for another update on Carla's double challenge. Again, I did OK on the low-spending part of it, de-cluttering- not so much.
So here are my numbers:
Feb 15- spent $23.33 at Walmart (food budget). Also went to Kid to Kid and DI and got my older Kid some pants, shirts etc.Total spent on clothes-$14.47 (Misc. budget)
Feb 16- no spend day
Feb 17- got some ice-cream cones at Walmart, spent $4.74(food budget)
got "Courageous" movie from Redbox, $1.28
Feb.18- That was my biggest spending day of the week! First we went to IKEA. They had queen size 200 thread count sheets sets( well, actually any size ) for $14.99!! We've been looking for some new sheets for a while but just couldn't fit it in our budget. Our sheets that we use right now are about 8 years old, and well..they needed to be changed. So we got 2 sets. Total spent: $ 32.03 (misc.). But I'm so excited to finally have new sheets!
We also had a breakfast at IKEA. Breakfast itself was free but we got some applesauce for the boys. Spent $2.14 out of Eating out budget. Then we went to Walgreens for diapers(I got 3 packs of Huggies, $5.99 per pack after sale and coupons) and a bottle of Tide. Total spent :$ 23.15 (food budget)
Feb. 19- no spend day
Feb 20- no spend day
Feb 21- I was sick and didn't want to make dinner at all, so we got Subway, $10.79 (Eating out budget)
So here is where our numbers for the month so far:
Food- Total spent $173.62(left to spend this month: $106.38)
Misc- Total spent $68.93 (left to spend this month: $51.07)
Eating out-Total spent $23.60 (left to spend this month: $36.40)
Total saved this month so far for our trampoline fund- $95
I think we are doing really well this month. Can't wait to see how much we'll be able to save for our trampoline fund.
As for the de-cluterring challenge, I can honestly say that I failed. I did not do anything this week :( I had lots of plans for the weekend and Monday but got sick, and I'm yet to be healthy again. But because it was a "Productivity week", I still feel that I was productive. I decided to limit my computer time to 2 hours a day, and only after I will do all things on my to-do list for the day. I achieved it about 90% of the time. I'm pretty happy about it, especially with being sick!
And I'm fully ready for next week "Dreaded challenge" Here is the sneak pick at what I need to accomplish (not a pretty sight...sigh...):
Have a nice day, everyone!!
