I've not been as restrained with my daily spending lately, and it feels like money is slipping through my hands day by day. This is my "confession". :-)
We've been eating out a lot. I typically don't meet friends for lunches due to my work schedule, but things have been lighter the last few weeks, as I'm not running as much (kicking off a new training plan next week, but I'm in my easy week). As a result, I've met friends for lunch twice, gone out to lunch with M once, had a date night with M, met friends for a glass of wine once, and picked up food after my race on Saturday. We also ate out twice a few weeks ago for dinner as a family after exceptionally late work days.
Our dining out budget for March was $100, and we're already at $250. To put that in perspective, we spent $65 in January, & $200 in February (which included two birthdays & Valentine's Day).
Time to clamp down on the eating out & social spending.
I also got a pedicure, but that was my (planned) reward for finishing my half marathon.
I need to get back to my regularly weekly updates, as well. In positive news, I mailed my Secret Sister Swap gift off, so I'm feeling good about taking care of that. :-)
Getting super excited to celebrate this guy's 6th birthday this weekend. He continues to be the surprise of my life. Me + Nick at his 5th birthday last year. :-)
How's your spending going? Any fun weekend plans that you're looking forward to?
