Weekly spending report (1/5-1/11/15)

I'm trying to get better about tracking our weekly spending (outside of bills) - this just reflects our discretionary spending

  • Monday - 
    • $24.96 - gas
  • Tuesday - 
  • Wednesday
    • $.50 at Target for two packages of Christmas cards
    • $12.22 at Target for a birthday gift for a kids party N went to.
    • $1.99 for a cleaner for our stove
  • Thursday
    • No spend day
  • Friday 
    • No spend day
  • Saturday - 
    • -$92.42 at Costco. Returned a birthday gift M bought for the boys last week (we researched it on Amazon, and it had weak reviews). Also, returned a pair of pants that I got N for Christmas, but didn't fit.
    • $141.03 - Costco, groceries. We needed coffee, parmesan cheese, and a few other things, but this is just over our normal weekly amount. We get most of our produce, dairy, and meat at Costco. 
    • $6.56 - grocery store to take advantage of a sale on pasta & risotto

  • Sunday:
    • $4.99 - grocery store (picked up fish sticks for the kids dinner. Trying to expand the horizons of my youngest. ;-) 
    • $7.49 - produce stand for our normal weekly stuff - wheat lavosh bread, mini cucumbers, radishes, & kale
    • $13.51 - Rite Aid, birthday gift for a kids party S is going to next week.
    • -$214.47. Sold an old iPad & Surface on eBay.
This might be the only week where my weekly spending will be a negative number, thanks to a return & a couple of eBay sales. In total, we were positive $93.64 for the week. That said, the $214 in eBay profits will be put into the boys college accounts, which is what we agreed to do with any snowflake money this year. 

What about you? Do you track your weekly spending? How did you do last week?
