This week is the one with the highest grocery spending yet.
I also bought myself a dinner and breakfast this past weekend – ooops 🙂
I owe this mostly to the bad mood – food, after all, is an effective remedy to help feel good.
Nevertheless, I continue to make excellent choices considering the circumstances and keep spending much less than before.
This week I also made a pre-payment order, using the funds saved by my choices or by luck 🙂 That feels great!
Overall, my mood was negative, I needed to pamper myself, I spent more, but I am always eager to curb my spending. I think this week will be such a 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): $111.5
Fun funds saved this week: $120 – $111.5 = $8.5
Fun funds expenses: $19
Total fun funds accumulated so far in 2017: $464.5
Other expenses: $0
Savings from would-be-expenses: $91 (these are the expenses I would normally make, but decided not to, or just by chance did not need to make. A large chunk of these savings is a discount I asked for for a monthly service 🙂 )
Of note; I am making use of these savings – every once a while they are being paid as mortgage pre-payment 🙂 this is so exciting! seeing the seemingly small savings making such a positive difference in my debt levels. Very satisfactory 🙂
*Pantry/freezer treasures enjoyed: canned beans from the pantry; frozen green beans and minced beef from the freezer
*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
