Another great week of my super-duper lean spending month:)
I have had some extra expenses (a.k.a. non-essential) but I am okay with that as this is the best budget yet. I not only have stayed within my budget, but even managed to save from my weekly allowance:) While the super-duper lean spending month officially is February, you know I have started early and it feels alright. I will post about its details later.
Here is the account for this past week:
Weekly allowance: $120
Expenses related to the weekly allowance (grocery, breakfast/coffee at the cafe, cab rides- if ever, and other little miscellaneous expenses): $74.5
Fun funds saved this week: $120 – $74.5 = $45.5
Total fun funds accumulated so far in 2017: $367.5 (yay! )
Other expenses: $0 for the second week -a true miracle!
Savings from would-be-expenses: $22.5 (these are the expenses I would normally do, but decided not to – I am proud of these They may be small, but you know what I plan to do with them? Make a mortgage pre-payment!)
*Pantry/freezer treasures enjoyed: I have done so well this week consuming quite a bit of the food that I have hoarded at the pantry and freezer! These included; pasta, canned bean x 2, and canned corn from pantry and two containers of soup, mixed veggies, and croutons from freezer. Not bad, is it not? 🙂
*I am noting this because a while ago I decided that I needed to use the food I stocked up in my pantry as well as the freezer (this will hopefully help with my savings as well as limiting my food waste). By recording this activity here I hope to keep doing so.
Happy budgeting and happy savings
