2/16 Check In

I'm going to be trying to check in each night this week, or close to it in order to motivate me to record and track my spending. I also want to list my "frugal choices" of the day.

Today we went to Wal-Mart first this for some ammo for some the guns since DH was going skeet shooting this afternoon. While there, we also got some candy, chicken from the deli, and Mardi Gras beads that were awesome and had gators (my FAVORITE animal) on them. It was $40 but we paid with cash DH had on hand, so while we didn't spend any budgeted money, we were still wasteful.

While at Wal-Mart we got a $30 gas card and DH filled up (more like 3/4 full) his truck. That should definately take him through the rest of the week.

So total today: (Excluding cash) $30, all budgeted.

Frugal Choices:

  • I took my lunch to work.
  • I researched online and ordered TONS on coupons to use at K-Marts double coupon week.

And I'll post Sunday's here since I didn't start until today.
$30 gas in my car, budgeted with $15 left for gas later in the week.
