Ooops. An entire week went by and I didn’t record anything. I’ve also slipped up in the spending realm.
Not that I’ve over spent.
Oddly enough, both the kids summer community ed classes were canceled at the last minute so I requested the money be refunded to my card, which left us with a surplus. Then, I looked up how to fix the headlight in my car and discovered that it was super simple and saved me $50.
What do I do with this savings?
This is why we never have money, all the extra is twiddled away. I’ve purchased more in groceries than I budgeted for. We found a great deal on craigslist for a dishwasher and microwave so we went and picked them up. The husband needed a new tractor part, so we made a payment on that.
I need to work on finding a good balance between spontaneous spending and budgeting. A way to have extra but not overspend.
Anyone else have this trouble?
