I admit this week I have spent more than regular – I am not sure why. I have had this irresistible need to shop, but I hope to restrain myself soon 🙂
Weekly allowance spending (transportation, grocery, breakfasts, eating out etc.): $103
Fun funds collected this week: $120 – $103 = $17
Fun funds expenses: $24 (this and that – they were not necessary at all…)
Fun funds left/accumulated so far: $188
Extra expenses: $58 (donations for a gift and some other stuff that I cannot remember now)
Savings from would-be-expenses (expenses I was tempted to do but did not do, or the discounts I used): $152 (yahooo! 🙂 )
Seriously; I have the need and the wish to shop…. I want to buy stuff, just to buy. where does this come from? I better come to my senses, as I have an expensive social to attend this week…
One thing I know about myself is that if I need to spend a large amount of money on something, then I care less about other expenses and my spending increases substantially. It kind of nullifies all the efforts I put into saving. Did I mention there is a psychology behind saving? One more thing to add into that argument.
Happy savings everyone! 🙂
I’ve just started to buckle down on my budget as well.
