A good week in terms of spending and saving.
I was meaning to spend more, especially for food. I am not eating well and if I must dine out, that is what it should be. Perhaps next week, I will do this now that I have accumulated quite a bit of funds in the “fun funds” category.
A couple of regrets I have had are to take the cab this morning (i could not wait 10 min for the bus….sigh…) and some fast food I ate a couple of days ago. Dully noted.
Anyways; this weeks breakdown is as follows:
weekly allowance expenses (grocery, eating out, and transportation): $74.5
funds left from the allowance for the “fun funds” account: $120 – $74.5 = $45.5
total fun funds: $168.5
savings from the would-be-expenses (expenses I was tempted to do, but did not such as cab, or discounts): $128
My plan for next week is to buy interesting and tasty food so that I can cook and eat at home (I am 100% sure that this is way better for my health than eating out). As a matter of fact, I cooked this evening pasta, which had carrots, green cabbage, minced beef, and onion as veggies in it. This is the most veggies I have eaten in a while. Even though I believe pasta is not good for me (too much carbs), the fact that I had the motivation to cook and eat this dish, and I consumed a variety of veggies, was priceless.
