seems like I am spending and spending… While shopping is a great feeling, constantly spending over my budget is not. I gotta come up with a strict budget for the next week to get back to track (this works for me).
weekly allowance expenses: $145.5 ($25.5 over my regular allowance…)
savings from would-be-expenses (expenses that I was tempted to do, but did not; discounts, etc.): $163
Other expenses (cleaning products, cat supplies, cab to the shelter, a second hand rug): $317.5.
Ah, come on…. this is a huge amount. Around $200 is for cat-supplies/cab fee to visit the shelter. $70 is for a lovely second-hand area rug which turned out to be perfect (new, good-looking, and fitting the living room well. I should not be sorry 🙂
fun funds saved this week: -$25.5
fun funds accumulated to date: -$8
So, for the first time since the new year, I have a negative balance in the fun funds, which means that I have no money left for extravaganza :). I am smiling but this situation is actually not great. I gotta tighten the belt this week. I need to purchase more cat supplies and also pay for the cat adoption fees. So, I probably am looking for another week with lots of expenses in the category of “other expenses”.
But, my fiends, life is good. I have hope that things will turn around 🙂
