This was quite a #leanspending week 🙂
I am constantly saving from my weekly allowance (a.k.a. fun funds): I have not decided what to do with the accumulated funds, but I am sure I will come up with something over time 🙂
Also, I got a tax return last week, which excites me! I will be using it as a mortgage pre-payment next week 🙂
Weekly allowance: $120
Expenses related to the weekly allowance (grocery and other little miscellaneous expenses): $43
Fun funds saved this week: $120 – $43 = $77
Fun funds expenses: $0
Total fun funds accumulated so far in 2017: $674.5 (Yahooo !!!! )
Other expenses: $50 (health-related)
Savings from would-be-expenses: $31.25 (these are the savings from expenses that I would normally make, but decided not to; such as walking rather than taking the bus, having breakfast at home rather than at the local cafe etc.).
Not too much this week, but that is okay – every dollar counts 🙂
Pantry/freezer treasures enjoyed: minced beef, cooked bean meal, green beans, and meatballs from the freezer; rolled oats, flax seeds, bulghur, and pasta (x2) from the pantry
Don’t you love using the food at home?
Happy budgeting and happy savings
