September Spending Challenge.

by Shannon on September 2, 2008

This September I am going to challenge myself to write down all my spending, I am going to use cash, that way I will think before I spend. I am taking the debit card out of my purse, and I will be armed with my change and dollars. Here is how I did for Sept. 1.

Spent .00.

As for Sept. 2. Different story.

CVS $8.41

Bought 2 cutter bug repelents, 2 lighter fluids for charcoling out, 1 raid fogger for backyard, folding table, (cousin is having a gargae sale, I am going to participate!) 2 pairs of speedo swim goggles

Williams $0.08
3 things of Dawn dish sop

Schwans Man (felt guilty if I do not buy….. his wife just left him)
$11.76 for mini cheeseburgers his special he needs to sale for the week (ate 2 for lunch, they were okay, will not buy again)

Taco Bell Trip #1

Taco Bell Trip #2

Reason for the 2 seperate stops, you may be thinking I am crazy… well it is because Blakers had his first football game (it poured down rain, and I ran to the car with my 2 year old in tow, and could not get back out and watch the game because I was drenched head to toe, and it was not the least bit attractive.) Anyways, I had to get him a “snack” at 3:30. Then had to go back to TB at 5:30, because at this time my almost 16 year old was done with Cross Country and was starving for TB.

So that concludes my day’s spending. It is really amazing to watch your money fly out the window. I will have to try to do better tomorrow. We shall see, now won’t we.

Glad to see other people spend $ on fast food too. Sometimes I feel out of place with all of the home-cooking,, frugal blogs I visit. I thought I was the only one who went to McDonalds 3 times a week.

Like your blog!! Good stuff.
