This was overall not a very exciting week. I don’t have much by way of insights to post. I kept my spending in check. I might be starting to stretch my approved list meanings just a little bit so I am going to rein myself back in and be a little stricter in the coming weeks. December is definitely going to be a spendier month than November was but with Christmas that doesn’t surprise me. Prior to this spending ban I would have done WAY more damage than I have.
Shopping Ban Spending Report – Week 7
December 9 – December 15 – $194.68 Spent TOTAL
December 9 – Hulu+ $5.99 I was on a free trial of this but Nick and I discovered Letterkenny and it is SO FUNNY that we are keeping Hulu+ until Season 8 comes out at the end of the month and we get a chance to watch it. It’s a bargain at $5.99 and I got rid of Spotify last month which was more than that. Easy justification.
December 10 – Zero Dollars Spent
December 11 – $70.79 Spent
- Petco $30.79 – stuff for the dogs
- Gifts $40.00
December 12 – Post Office – $7.85 Postage to return an item I bought at the end of September but shouldn’t have. I decided that taking the loss in postage was still alright. I will recoup almost $30 of the original purchase price when it is refunded. One good thing about the shopping ban is that I am freeing myself from buyer’s remorse.
December 13 – $47.70 Spent
- ALDI – $42.27 Groceries
- Dollar Tree – $5.43 A couple of items for a party I threw on the 14th. A cookie platter and serving bowl and some more peppermints for my jar.
December 14 – Oil Change – $52.35 I also got my tires rotated and my turn signal light bulb replaced. Pretty good bargain.
December 15 – Expo Flea Market – $5.00 I got 3 postcards and a vintage field guide.
Accomplishments/Milestones This Week:
- Nick and I paid off another one of our debts! That’s 2 down and 3 to go until we are completely debt free.
