Weekly Spending Report 07/10/2011 to 07/16/2011

I’ve never done a weekly spending recap before and thought perhaps I should start.  I’ve noticed that if I don’t keep track of what I’m spending, I will just keep spending.  I know I have a lot of work to do in terms of cutting our spending back so please be gentle.  I’m working on trying to keep money instead but I really am not doing a great job with my spending.

OMG.  This is what happens when you don’t pay attention to your spending.  I knew I was spending a lot of money.  I just didn’t know that I was literally throwing my money away on food.  I hate that this money wasn’t sent to pay down debt.  I continue to spend money on stupid stuff.  I can’t get DH to stop spending money either.  We definitely need to have a sit down tonight and figure out why we can’t say no to ourselves and our kids.

Next week I will do better.

  1. As I came down I saw your daily spending was high but before you make any rash decisions you should monitor it over a few weeks. We all have weeks like this sometimes, I doubt this will be your regular weekly spending.

    Don’t beat yourself up over this week. You have made a start and that is a huge step.
