One day belated, but here is my weekly spendings 🙂
Overall, I am keeping with #TheLeanSpendingMonth plan and as of Feb 1st, I also am recording my daily spendings.
Weekly allowance: $120
Expenses related to the weekly allowance (grocery, breakfast/coffee at the cafe, cab rides- if ever, and other little miscellaneous expenses): $55.5
Fun funds saved this week: $120 – $55.5 = $74.5
Total fun funds accumulated so far in 2017: $432 (yay! wow! so much saving – thanks me! 🙂 )
Other expenses: $0 for the third week -A miracle!
Savings from would-be-expenses: $37 (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 been consistently using the food in my freezer and pantry in the last few weeks This week I have enjoyed the followings: canned bean, canned soup, cracked wheat, dry red kidney beans, dehydrated pepper and eggplant from the pantry and frozen carrots and frozen chicken soup from the freezer! Yaaaay!! 🙂
*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
