Week Three Update


This was not a good week for us and we need to get back on track this week. I want to stay honest though. So here is how the week went.

gas: $54

groceries: $160 ( this includes some toiletries from Wal-mart that we were out of like paper towels, soap,etc.)

The end of the month is also when a lot of bills are due between the 15th and the 1st of the next month so I feel really tight with money right now.

We also rented two movies for $5 and got fast food for $15. Which is against the rules of the challenge but we all make mistakes I guess.  My daughter also got $4 as a special treat with school starting to use at the store.


I’m learning a lot through doing this challenge about how often the impulse to spend money here and there comes up and although the challenge will be over soon. I am going to try my best to limit these little purchases. Over time that will add up and save us a lot of money.

I also think that we could be saving more on groceries or at least be getting more for our money, so my next budget goal is to start using coupons.

I have  extended my promo code for 25% off any ad through the challenge. Use the code yourock because really all of you do rock and have made this challenge doable for me.

Thank you again for all the support and hopefully this next week we do better.
