spending holiday

July 28, 2008

we spent so much freakin’ money this weekend that this morning i decided that i will not spend any money on anything until saturday. so far i have done well.

i will pack my lunch all week, like i should all the time. i will not stop for my weekly starbucks on friday morning (this wouldn’t be such a big deal, but i get a venti latte, a grande iced green tea, a reduced fat breakfast sandwich and a to-go sandwich for lunch, totaling just under $13). i will not go to barnes & noble out of boredom. i will not break down and get dunkin’ donuts ice tea or coffee when everyone else puts in an order. i will not stop at the store and buy something for dinner because we have nothing i feel like. i filled my tank at costco for $3.97 a gallon yesterday, so i will not need to fill up until next week.

i am not one bit concerned about this, and i don’t think it will be an issue at all. i wonder how i will feel by thursday.

    It’s actually remarkably easy to not spend money during the week. Well, where I work anywhere – there is NOTHING in Vauxhall! I just buy a loaf of bread and have toast at work every morning, and some cans of beans or soup and have beans on toast or soup and bread for lunch. Or salad. Or whatever, it’s just the lunch thing that could ge tme, so I plan better.

    Good luck!
