Re: February Spending Accountability thread

We had a birthday celebration to go to yesterday. Dh had some extra side work to do and was in the city and said for us to meet him up there arond 4, which meant dinner was going to be extremely early or I was going to pack it. Decided we would splurge and use coupons I had won and sent $5.93 at papa johns. Then we went to the park and ate dinner and went to the party for dessert after. Not bad for 7 eating (can't count baby she is ebfing) Though not wanting to spend any $$ on eating out, and I make our own pizza every week, but nice to not do anything! :P

1-$1.69 candy bar for friend
2-$0
3-$0
4-$45 leftover taxes payment
5-$29.79 /8 workout DVDs shipped $1.68 shared frozen yogurt between 5 of us
6-$2.15 dollar tree/shower curtain, jelly belly
7-$7.68-2 books
8-$0
9-$0
10-$0
11-$5.93
12-$0

We ate dinner out tonight but it was nice. DH had 4 meetings after work today so the kids and I met him at Del Taco in between meetings so we could see him for a bit. It was good seeing each other for a while.

Re: February Spending Accountability thread

Yesterday we had ds' registration for kindergarten. We had to pay $4.50 for headphones and I decided to buy a school shirt for $7. I am pretty sure that was the only spending for yesterday. Today there shouldn't be any. We have a bday party tonight but the kids are making cards and I'm bringing a gift from out gift bin. We will eat at the party (although I will need to pack something for ds since he doesn't eat pizza).

We spent too much today. I shouldn't have stopped at McD's on the way home from taking he kids to the doc and dh shouldn't have taken DS I the Lego store when they were at the mall checking out laptops. The haircuts were necessary as well as the goggles for dd. dh spent money at the grocery store on extras for our valentines dinner tonight. There are a couple things I want to buy that are going to cost money but I keep outing it off and we do need a new computer fairly soon.

Re: February Spending Accountability thread

I spent $115 at gymboree today for kids clothes and then $1 on groupon for dh. I had a credit for the rest of the groupon cost. It might seem like I spent a lot at gymbo but I averaged less than $6 an item and I can resell for what I paid when done.
