I continue to take the cab in the mornings this week – one gets used to comfort quite easily 🙂
I had forgotten what a blessing it was to get up whenever I want and not worrying about losing time by waiting for and taking the bus. Taking the cab in the morning sure does give me a warm feeling of being pampered.
Sadly, it also means that I am spending more than I would like to 🙂
I know this is just temporary so I am not worried, but I wished I had started walking or taking the bus, rather than taking the cab, starting tomorrow. Let’s see how it will go.
Anyways, this week the spending is higher than before because of the extra cab expenses, but other than that I continue to spend consciously and keep saving.
Here is the week’s account:
Weekly allowance: $120
Expenses related to the weekly allowance (grocery, breakfast, and a cab fares): $104
Fun funds saved this week: $120 – $104= $16
Fun funds expenses: $0
Total fun funds accumulated so far in 2017: $788.5 ()
Other expenses: $84 (health-related and social expenses, in addition to personal care and cleaning product purchases)
Savings from would-be-expenses: $60.75 (these are the savings from expenses that I would normally make, but decided not to; such as having breakfast at home rather than at the local cafe, not picking up the bill for others at socials).
Pantry/freezer treasures enjoyed: soup (x2) and bean meal from the freezer; quinoa from the pantry Thank goodness, I am done with quinoa…..
