Pathetic. What did I shamefully spend money on this week?
a dust ruffle for Jack's bed. $20
candy bars at the checkout (for me, not the kids so I don't feel too guilty). $1.00
Christmas wrapping paper. 75% off, but now what I am going to do with it!? $5.00
What did I spend money on that was worth while?
A new crock pot. My crock pot of 7 years died while making chili this weekend. I replaced it the next day, but for $19.99 I think it was money well spent. I did comparison shop online before buying from Target.
Buzz Lightyear sheets for Jack. I like to have 2 sets of sheets per bed, so I don't have to wait for laundry to change them. Jack's room has a "space" theme, so I think this was reasonable for $20. And, he is now sleeping in his big-boy bed, so I think it is a win.
What did I NOT spend money on?
Coffee - I really wanted Starbucks a few afternoons this week but stopped myself, instead I ate 5 mini candy bars from the jar on my desk
Saved on lunch - 30% off at Pluckers Wednesday, free chips at Firehouse Thursday. Yes - I could have saved even more by not going out.
To do next week: expense review. BLAH. Wish list. Yeah! Write down all expenses. Blah.
