Monday Updates

October 30th, 2017 at 10:44 am

Well a new zero balance budget will start tomorrow. I decided to keep what's left in each envelope with the exception of the change ($4.45). Total left over was $66.45, not bad. I added the $4.45 in change to my change jar to be rolled up and deposited to the EF fund (baby step 1).

I went back to Target, to get my $5.00 back on the coupon I failed to provide yesterday, as well as my $0.76 for the pork chops I bought. I feel better now about yesterday's meat purchase. Over all I think I saved $7 on my meat purchases.

I went into JCP to find a scarf for a colleague who is leaving, I really didn't want to spend more than$10. I found some lovely scarves, but I just did not want to spend the money. While in Penney's I shopped around, and found one scarf for $2.52 and the other for $4.20. Not bad. I love a great deal.

Our court hearing had to be rescheduled due to an emergency 🚨, im waited this long so it shouldn't matter for a few more weeks.

    It's always nice to save money. Do you think there are other ways you could save more by cutting out things that are considered luxuries, even if you have them in your budget? Years ago I used to get a manicure each week. I enjoyed it and it didn't seem like very much...$12 each week. But, then I added it up...$48 a month for 12 months...plus a little Christmas bonus....over $576 a year plus whatever gas I used to drive there and back. I stopped having them and instead started putting money in my Roth. Some financial folks call this the Latte factor...a few dollars each day or each week and it doesn't hurt the overall budget, but it adds up.

    I've cut the hair appointments in half. I use to go every week, now it's twice a month. I've decided to go without the pedi and look for free things to do with the mentee. I've managed to keep the grocery and dining out down.
