It has been good week. One of these weeks where the expenses are quite low because previously I stocked up food. Oh, well 🙂
I have had a number of #noexpense days this week; I believe Saturday, Monday-Thursday I did not spend money, not even for transportation because I made the choice to walk 🙂
So it is possible to live without the need of spending money? This, my friends, feels really good 🙂
Here is this week’s spendings and savings:
Weekly allowance: $120
Expenses related to the weekly allowance (grocery): $22.5
Fun funds saved this week: $120 – $22.5= $97.5
Fun funds expenses: $54
Total fun funds accumulated so far in 2017: $1,108.5 !!!
Other expenses: $11.5 (soft drinks for the dinner I was invited to)
Savings from would-be-expenses: $32.75 (these are the savings from expenses that I would normally make, but decided not to; such as having breakfast at home rather than at a cafe, walking rather than taking the bus, using coupons etc.).
Better than spending them, do you not think 🙂
Mortgage pre-payment: $225.5!
I am so excited about these payments!
I believe this is my 6th pre-payment since new year. Whatever I can save without much of an effort or planning (e.g. savings from would-be-expenses and the tax return are good examples), I use as pre-payments 🙂 I estimate that I will make around 5K of pre-payments this year – let’s cross the fingers! 🙂
Pantry and freezer treasures enjoyed this week: frozen chicken meal from the freezer; and bulghur, wild rice, red lentil, and canned corn from the pantry. Talking about #endfoodhoarding!
And as part of my “eat more diverse food challenge” I have consumed kefir (for the first time in my life), corn, lentil, bulghur, wild rice, carrot, meat, green salad mix, and chicken that I had not eaten the week before (and a lot of sweets at the dinner with friends – ooooops! 🙂 )
Happy savings and happy healthy eating!
