:(

December 4th, 2011 at 10:54 am

I fell off the wagon, about $65 in dinging out this weekend.
$43 for dinner with cousin and BF
$12 for breakfast and dinner today
$6 for breakfast yesterday

The bad news is the $43 and $6 came out of my leisure fund so I have cleaned that out for the month but on a positive note I had the money.

$12 was not in the budget so $12 was added to my challenge for dining out.

This was the wrong month to spend my leisure fund so quickly and foolishly Frown

    Well, at least it sounds like one of the meals was a lovely social occasion?

    Yeah, that sucks a little.
    Maybe you can find an area to spend a little less at this month and make-it-up to yourself?? Smile

    Amber, are you able to identify the triggers that set off your spending binges? I've begun tracking these myself to use them as learning lessons. As an example, last week I had a sudden craving for a Carl's Jr. BQ chicken sandwich for some reason, resisted it, then spent time trying to figure out why the urge hit so suddenly and so hard. I landed on not having adequate, or interesting, enough food at home at the time for lunch, which set up a sensation of feeling deprived.

    My long winded point is that this week I redid my menu planning to ensure I had appealing foods for lunch available every day of the week, and the spend urge hasn't reappeared.
