i didn’t spend ANY money this weekend on well anything, that wasn’t already budgeted in…!i have to go grocery shopping today (sunday’s my grocery shopping day) and groceries are already budgeted in…but with 6 weeks to go it’s crunch time and we HAVE to save every last penny for the wedding.
i’m usually AWFUL at saying “oh we can’t spend any money this weekend” and yeah i usually spend way beyond our means. but yesterday – nope didn’t spend anything!
we did go see robin hood last night – but Darling Husband had some extra cash on hand…and that doesn’t count, to me, because i’m talking more about our checking accounts.
anywyoo – anyone else always try NOT to spend anything and end up doing so anyways?

Sounds like you did a pretty good job! It’s all baby steps. You don’t have to completely cut yourself off from fun things even if you are on a budget!

😀 it may be sorta funny – but i’m just so happy – i’ve made it all weekend without buying ANYTHING that wasn’t already budgeted in (ie groceries) and even my groceries, i stuck at EXACTLY how much I’d budgeted and that was with going to three stores! :p

I would be proud too. We on the otherhand decided to start a bunch of home improvement projects. $$$!
