So this challenge has been great for me. We have more savings per week than we've had.. in a long time, I've realized just how frivolous spending (coffees, fast food, clearance crap I don't need, really add up. My eyes have been opened I'm forever gonna be changed. Watching the savings grow, the simple money saving ways of meal planning, and the using-what-you-have-until-you-buy-more mentality will forever be with me.
And I'm not giving up, I'm just writing this out to say....I've failed a little.
I cheated, and spent money I didn't "need" to. A lot. Not necessarily a lot of money...but a lot of times. ..especially this week.
Maybe this is my breaking point, 25 days (or 24, 23, 22...)
I'm ready to put my ass back on track starting now.
But I must confess.
I spent $$$ on:
Wine - (hubs bought it, but I didn't protest )
Hubs = beer
thechildrensplace.com - (my excuse - 50% off whole store + ftee shipping, toddler needed pants)
shopjustice.com - (free shipping + 30% extra off clearance )
Cottonbabies.com - (4.0 BGS are all on clearance for $12.95... I needed THREE more 😔)
PinkLemonadeShop.com - turns out I love them soooo much, I needed a few more.
(My first month trying out the Diva Cup want such a success 😳)
Lunch with the hubs and toddler today (with a half off coupon at least )
Still have the saved $$$ from the first 3 weeks... that's good right? And made $170 this month babysitting, that good right?
Jumping back on the bandwagon.
Only free fun for the rest of the month!!!
I can doooooooo this!
