Weekly Spending Report

August 15, 2011

I feel like I failed a bit this week… I bought lunch at school twice, and the second time it gave me food poisoning, so maybe I got what I paid for? lol. The Starbucks gift cards I got for my birthday finally ran out, so when I really wanted it, I had to use my own money. And, on Friday night, my cohort went out to celebrate being together for our final residency. (People come from all over the world, for this program.)

This week coming up: I have packed a week’s worth of lunches for school, filled up my car with gas when it was cheap (there are major gas wars in Victoria, BC right now), and am going to schedule in two runs. On Friday around noon, I will be done school and can go back to normal life! *Happy dance*

-$117.42 Car Loan
-$8.90 lunch at school cafe (forgot mine at home)

    Good job preparing for the week ahead. That’s a really good idea.

      Preparing for an entire week helps me eat better and gives me more time for other things. I suggest it to everyone!

    Good for you! It sounds like you’re doing well. With regards to feeling like you failed, what I learned about being on a budget is that some weeks are more successful than others, but at the end of the day, things balance out.

    Good idea to pack meals for the whole week… I gotta get on that!

      It’ll save you a ton of cash! Thanks for the encouragement, SB :)

      Thanks, Star! I lost another pound this week and forgot to add that to my report… feeling good!
