Re: October Accountability Thread

I'm in! I need to control my spending I spent way too much on fun stuff last week (granted, it was my birthday, but I didn't REALLY need to spend $200 on yarn and $60 on clothes for Danae for over a year away!)

Week 1:
1. $0
2. $0

8. $80 DH's insulin, $62 Wal-Mart (light bulbs and household items), $8.50 treats for DH (I took pity on him )
9. $60 gas in my minivan
10. $34 DH took us out to lunch (total surprise! We almost never eat out!)
11. $92 at grocery store (but I got a bunch of peanut butter and cheese)

Totals:
Groceries: $552.27 (I try to stay under $600)
Eating out: $65
Household: $376 (Some of this is groceries I got at Wal-Mart)
Medical: $380 (not usually this much, but DH should have enough insulin for most of next month)
Gas: $145 (does not include DH's work truck, which is usually around $400/month. This month it was $268 because he was mostly working locally!)
