My Mood:
Ok, I've never done this before, but I absolutely HAVE to get our spending under control. It's making me crazy. We haven't had a budget in years and I'm constantly overwhelmed. Hoping this makes me feel more accountable.

Week 1
Paid for DD's ballet for the year ($350, saved $25), driveway sealing ($150), and yarn ($80) above "normal" expenses. Going to keep track of EVERYTHING the rest of the month so I can try to budget

Week 2
8 - $0
9 $65 (groceries), $46 (school pictures - some are Christmas gifts), $3.50 (Starbucks), $3 CVS (saved $24!!!), $4.31 (Shutterfly - shipping for free magnet Christmas Gift)
10 $3 CVS (vitamin sale, b1g1 & $3 off!) $20 lunch for me & dd and play place (former coworker on maternity leave)
11 $5 Groupon (for $30 gc to my FAVORITE restaurant!), $25 piano books (for the year), $72 gas UGGGG
12 $9 Deli (cold cuts for grilled sandwiches - our version of non-takeout dinner), $17.50 birthday gift for DD's bff
13 $55 YMCA (basketball for DS)
14 $6 Market (eggs & Italian bread for dinner tomorrow night)
