Friday (2/2) - $32.97 - In & Out for the four of us + 3 of the power workers who were at the house. We had no power, and I was jetlagged. That's my excuse. ;-)
- $13.76 - uber to the repair shop to check on our car. Sigh.
- $300 - Home Depot gift cards. These generated a $45 Starbucks gift card, and we will be using them shortly for more house stuff
- $7.17 - Lucky for cream cheese & a few other things
- $4.62 - Bananas & spicy hummus at Trader Joes
- $20 for BMX racing for the kids
Total spend for the two weeks is $1087.14. Given that $300 will be used for home repairs, after minusing that out, it's a pretty standard amount. Note that you don't see any Costco bills. We're using our gift card for groceries. I also made $285.03. All of the money I make in my sidehustle goes towards our unfunded 2018 goals (kids college accounts + our vacation house mortgage).
