Spending Aug 11 - 18

My stomach = $56.61 ( I just had to crave pizza, bread sticks and hot wings - Dominoes anyone?)

The ride = $30.00

Train fare = $4.00

Shelter = $910.50

Shelter upkeep = $7.46

Credit cards = $411.04

Clothing & Accessories = $10.65 ( I got a pair of shoes and capri pants for this price) Bargainnnnnn!!!

I need to reign in my cravings for certain things. They can be pricey.

I did not keep the best records for the past few days. Things got kinda crazy and I might be forgetting one or two things.

One thing that helps me keep track of what I spent is having a special place to stash receipts - I have a pocket in my wallet and I habitually (it used to be 'consciously') tuck receipts in it as I walk away from the register.

Im right there with ya. It is so hard to keep track and if you want to really make and money you are supposed to sit home and make toys out of toilet paper rolls or some shit... while being dressed like a vagabond from the godwill in scabies-infested clothes

I find it hard writing down what I spend everyday. I just pay myself first, bills second and whatever is leftover I'm free to do whatever.

You doing good, you are better than me. I am not that meticulously!

Opinionated Diva said...

I did this on my vacation and we spend a pretty penny... Now I have to start saving all over again... I want a house, but I need to save money first.

Tired of being broke said...

Am new at the writing things down, so am still learning as I go.

To the Divas: no a zero is not missing. this was at Old Navy, the pants were $3.00+ and the shoes were $7.00+.

I loves me some bargains.
