Today is the end of the weekly budget and this is how I have done in the last week:
- Over-spent ($59)! oops.. Total spent: $259.
- Savings from would-be-expenses (expenses I was tempted to make but did not): $90
Well.. The holiday season is on to us, so are the expenses and the wide-open purse that purges money out of itself 🙂
Next week I will have additional expenses; one of my team members is leaving for another job. So I am taking everyone out for a lunch. I am not as happy to do this as before, realizing the entire bill is left on me all the time and it is usually a good sum of money that I can rather spend on myself (I have a frugal life-style and I am trying hard to save an emergency fund right now..).
I do not appreciate people leaving the bill entirely on me; if you guys do that to your boss knowing that s/he is spending her own money, please try to be considerate and at least offer to pay your part of the bill. Chances that s/he will appreciate it and pay the entire bill more happily than before.
If you do not let others pay for your bill, then go ahead and please congratulate yourself. I guess this is fantastic.
I am feeling somehow bad for complaining about here, but then I know I should not be; I cannot understand why not one individual so far asked to contribute to the lunch bill over many years…
