- No/Low Spend Challenge -
On my "No/Low Spend" challenge front, so far, so good! As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I'm sticking to a strict $300.00 budget for each week in July so we can bulk up our savings accounts. Two accounts in particular, our slush fund and my main/highest savings goal.
Yesterday I spent $145.73 on groceries for the week. I think we should be ok for the week with this, Dh and the kids may need bread later on this week, but other than that, I think we're good! I know that later on in the month I'm going to need a pork order, but I should be fine for my Namaste mixes as I place a larger order a couple weeks ago and I'm hoping it lasts me through till August again.
I was able to add $80 to my main savings goal today from pattern sales through Craftsy and we also earned $12.00 interest on that account. So, I'm up $92.00 of my $337.00 goal for that account! So far, so good! That leaves me with $245.00 that I'll need to add to that account to reach my goal for the month. After that goal has been reached, I'll focus on my slush fund.
I think that about covers it for today! I hope everyone has a fun, safe Canada Day long weekend!!
What are you up to this weekend?
