May NEEDS to be a "Minimal spending month" for us. Anyone else?
I absolutely need to spend as little as possible for the months of May and June and half of July if I'm to afford going to the states this summer. So, I'm going to be accountable to you all as inspiration. Granted it's not May 1st yet, but we get paid today so I'll start today. I won't post new posts, just update this one, and bump it if need be. Anyone and everyone is free to join me, I could really use the help! Thanks.
April 30: $10.38 (grocery money) on toiletries, $50.99 on beer for dh's work (he owed beer fine, it's a military thing), Euro9,95 for Mothers Day gift for my mom, Euro26,91 on groceries (doesn't count-comes from grocery money), $102.39 on Groceries (doesn't count - comes from grocery money, and of course the actual bills. I know it sould like a LOT, but really it's just the standard living expenses (yes even the work beer lol).
May 1 $0 woo hoo!
2 $3 starbucks. $2 grocery store (grocery budget).
3 $0 woo hoo again!
4 OMG today was TERRIBLE. I spent 60 Euro at Ikea (blow money), and then $60 at Bingo (blow money)! Granted all of it came from my blow money but I feel bad for spending that much.
5 53Euros for dinner and drinks with dh's shop for National EOD day. It was a LOT of money.
6 10Euros for MIL's mothers day present. $10 at Taco Bell. $31 at Chilis. Today was not a good day.
7 100 Euros for car servicing.
9 $25 at Chilis. I'm starting to see a pattern here.
