What We Spent

This week we spent $34.65 on food, household items, and toiletries. Our CSA share costs $33.20 weekly. We also spent $37.50 on gas and $21.58 on dining out. That’s a total of $126.93 for Week #1 or 20% of our total $620 goal for the month.

What We Learned

That’s right, I went way off the bandwagon in the very first week with a lunch out and frozen yogurt! I should probably be fired from No Spend Month, but I hope you’ll let me try to redeem myself in the coming weeks. You see, it was my one last hurrah before giving up sugar for awhile. I guess I could have indulged in one of my other guilty pleasures like Ghirardelli brownies, but it just had to be fro-yo. If nothing else, it just goes to show what a serious dent in your budget even just a small splurge can make, taking up 17% of our spending for the whole week.

How are your budget resolutions holding in the New Year so far?
