Not spending $$ eating out is the hardest thing for us.

Re: February Spending Accountability thread

Yesterday was expensive for us but we bought a new computer. My dh recently got a little crazy about wanting a new one and I finally gave in because it's just easier than listening to him over and over again. It wasn't totally unnecessary as we say a little prayer every time we turn our old one on hoping that it will actually start. We also had a couple other misc. and unnecessary expenses that we should have avoided.

Today was a no spend though and I really need most of the rest of the month to be also!

Re: February Spending Accountability thread

dh got gas yesterday which was $55 and I picked up groceries today for $60 We are already over budget for groceries this month but dh and the kids can't live without milk. of course since I was already there I picked up some other things too. We also spent money for our building permit for the basement remodel but I'm not going to count it since I feel like it's a bill.

Re: February Spending Accountability thread

I spent $75 on diapers today and $48 on amber. I had a discount code for the diapers and my all in ones have really taken a beating after being used by 2 kids. I ordered 6 more for the new baby and hopefully won't need to replace any others. I also ordered an amber necklace for MIL for mother's day and I bought myself an amber anklet. I had a discount code for the amber jewelry too. That should be the only spending for the day!

Finally a zero day today! Love having a well stocked fridge/freezer (Carbonara for dinner) and a membership to the YMCA. Zumba for me, basketball for DS, and a run around the track for DD (and me), plus free childcare during my class (DH had plans).

Re: February Spending Accountability thread

Today was a no spend day. Although, I'm a bit bummed about it though because dh and I were supposed to have a dinner date but my in laws canceled on watching the kids. Instead we ended up staying in and eating left overs. I also have to adjust yesterday's spending and while it saves me in the long run I'm bummed about it too. I ordered some BG elementals and I guess they went out of stock where I ordered them from so I was refunded my payment.
