My Budget Squeezed To Death
My weekly shopping day is a Friday, and I thought that as I had bought no Groceries last week my bill would have been totally out of control, but this morning I only spent $70.00 in Aldi and that included a stack of chocolate on sale from Easter, so I am hoping with a little jiggling and menu planning that I may not have to spend too much more this week.
I also needed to put petrol in my car, but I did'nt fill up as petrol prices are ridiculous just now, so I am hoping to see some change by Sunday so I can fill up for a couple of weeks. I am quite fortunate that my small car is easy on gas, and I don't drive far on a weekly basis.
After our Fiscal Fast week Sharon asked me how much I thought I had saved myself, actually I think by the end of the week all I had saved was around $100 most of that would have been food money. I am allocating myself very little to spend until the end of May by which time all of my small debts left from The Restaurant will be cleared plus my police fine ( naughty girl ) However all of my large debts are still there and I will post about them later.
So after squeezing the life out of my budget and making everyone I live with miserable all I saved was $100, but I still consider it worth it, and will be happy to participate in another challenge any day soon......
