I have not posted these checks for a while.
Now that I am making a serious attempt back to my frugal life-style, here comes this week’s account:
Weekly allowance expenses: $119, including grocery, cab fare, treats at the office, and junk food. My weekly allowance this year is 100 bucks/week, so I over-spent this week.
Fun funds: The fun funds so far are at the negative side: -$596.
Fun funds are those that are left from my weekly allowance starting each new year. Last year I had used the fun funds for things that my heart wished for and a pre-payment. This year I am looking forward to bringing this to a positive balance, but I am not sure how fast this can happen 🙂
Other savings: $7
Health related expenses and donations: $23.5
I am hopeful that next week will be a much better one, if I can continue with my frugal and simple life saga.
I have done something nice and made a pre-payment order today. I likely will need to tap into my chequing account really deep for this payment…. Normally, I like to have a healthy level of funds at the chequing account, but this payment will drop it significantly. I thought unless I challenge myself like this, I would not have enough motivation to save more and limit extra expenses. So, the weeks ahead will be somehow challenging and interesting.
I am up for it!
I hope there will be no additional expenses in the next few weeks 🙂
