Florida Bound

July 20th, 2011 at 05:06 pm

I leave for Florida tomorrow! I decided to use grocery money and the little bit of cash that was already available in my budget. Even if I just get to sit on a beach all day with my husband....I'll be happy.

Hopefully I will come back from my mini vacation refreshed and revived and ready to take on the world...and my finances. Smile

Trip is free...but need spending money

July 15th, 2011 at 01:15 pm

Well...I'm going to Florida. My husband's work is paying for the flight and the hotel so that part is free. But we will have to pay for food and entertainment. I don't want to take any from savings and I didn't "plan" for this trip so there is no money in the budget for it. So I have to figure out where to take it from. Its basically 3 1/2 days. So here are my options:

1) Use half of my grocery money and just plan on eating at the house a lot when I get back. (Plus use the cash I will have)

2) Don't transfer any new money to savings and use what I was going to put in.

3) Or just try to use the little cash I have in my budget and make it work (but it will be slim)

Not sure what to do.

I did it!!!

2 No Spend Days!! So proud of myself. It was super hard...especially being a weekend. But I did it. And I am over being sick too, which is fabulous!

Going to try it again tomorrow. Smile

No spend weekend

My goal is to have 2 no spend days....Saturday and Sunday. I have groceries at home, plus I'm not feeling great so I need to just stay home anyway. I really hope I can do it! I think it would be a good boost for me.

Happy Weekend!
