New Year Resolutions: Week 3

Alright, so far I have barely managed to make my goal of 2 posts a week…And that is only because last week I did 2 the same day.  I don’t know if that really counts for 2 a week, as it was not what I had in mind when I set my goal, but the way I figure it counts as long as I am attempting to write the posts on different days and it won’t if I start making it a habit to only blog on one day.

Well since you can see how I am doing on that resolution here, I will update you on my other one, to stick to my $80 a week budget.  Last week the only money spent was a little over $5 on ice creams at Chik-fil-A.  We ate from the pantry, which was really fun and I managed to use some stuff that I didn’t even know I had.  But unfortunately it was not to last.  I forgot that if I was going to eat from the pantry, I needed to be sure I had some basic essentials, like bread and tomato sauce.  After some great deals, like 3 gallons of milk for $1.49 each, I ended up spending $63.57 on groceries.  Since we went out to eat on Sunday, I am over my budget for the week.  On the other hand since I was under from last week, I am still well under budget for the month.

Using cash is really helping to stay on target.  I am going to make this really cute envelope system that I found recently.  We will see how it goes.
