As per my "letting go" post i'm kind of at a "stand still" with my savings challenge right now as I'd like to talk to hubby about the budget and see what his opinions are on our budget, if he thinks anything should change, etc... so this week was left to just 'be'. I stopped tracking mid-week so honestly am not sure where we are. It's not like we really have huge amounts to work with, (lol!) so i'm not sure what, if anything will change, but all the same, we'll see. I also wanted to thank everyone for their replies on my "letting go" post... After this is posted I plan on replying to all the comments. I'm glad to know that i'm not the only "control freak" who's trying to ease up! It appears that i'm in good company!!! ;)
Morgan & I went out last night to White Oaks mall to do a bit of shopping as it was my sisters birthday yesterday and she really wanted to get her something. Hubby & I already bought her a laptop for University, so I wasn't worried, but Morgan adores her Aunt Sara and wanted to get her something special, so out we went. I'll post more after but my sister reads my blog, so I can't let her know we bought her a life size Justin Beiber cardboard cut out as it would totally ruin the surprise. :P (Hehehe!!)
While we were there I had to grab personal care items for hubby as he seemed to run out of everything he uses this week, body wash, shampoo, shaving cream, vitamins, and spectro gel. (which I forgot), and Morgan needed body wash as well. $76 dropped in WM we left. Then I grabbed a few Christmas gift items and Morgan ate dinner in the food court, so... $150+ later, we're back home and i've yet to sit and do our budget for the week. I need to take the $$ that I spent on the Christmas items out of that budget and put it back into our regular budget to even out.
I'm going to have a chat with hubby and see if we'll be changing our budget at all and will come back to post soon! For now, please post any updates you may have for me (good or bad!) and i'll peek in to cheer you on and see how everyone is doing!
Back soon!! :)
