I have not updated this category recently; mostly because I was spending over my budget for some time as well as a trip I made to to Europe for a week.
Good news is that as of this week, I am back to my lean budget. That means none of these junks that I consume to deal with stress are in my life. Well, I am not an eternal optimist, so I am not saying they will never appear in my life (though, I wished they did not). But, until that time, I am proud and excited about this spending routine – nothing extra is purchased; sales are followed and items are stocked up as usual, money is saved, the chequing account gets healthier, and I feel abundant and well.
All is well in my financial world right now 🙂
weekly allowance expenses: $90
funds left from the weekly allowance and transferred to the fun fund: $120-$90=$30
total fun fund: -$270 (have I mentioned I was over-spending? argh..)
extra expenses (hosting, meals with others, health-related expenses): $182.5
I am looking forward to an even leaner week ahead. I really hope this will go on like this. There is quite an astonishing empowerment coming from increasing the value of your money (by means of following sales, for example), not wasting food, money, or items, saving money that otherwise would be lost, and still feeling like on top of everything 🙂
