Every Monday during 2022, I am posting an update on what I spent for the week as a way of keeping myself accountable for my No/Low Buy Year. Also, in order to see my true savings, I am also tracking items I was tempted to buy but didn’t.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you have a day full of love and chocolate. 😉
This week was a lot better than last as far as my spending. I would have loved to spend $0, but under $200 is pretty good (for me!). I stayed within budget on gift-giving, which is HUGE. I splurged on a ‘donut’ for Auggie, instead of the large cone he was given by the vet. He liked it a lot better.
What I spent February 7 – February 13:
- Starbucks (breakfast): $6.00 (on my way back from early drs. appt)
- Dog Collar: $31.94
- Birthday gifts: $60.21
- Groceries: $24.23
- Valentine’s day goodies: $18.20
- OTC meds: $8.00
- Take out: $40.00 (Italian for dinner)
What I almost purchased but didn’t:
In all transparency, I did re-book a cruise this week. I originally canceled the cruise when I thought foot surgery was imminent but decided I really wanted to get away, bad foot and all. So we are cruising in March – 7 days instead of 10, so I actually received money back. If I end up needing surgery, I will schedule it when I get back.
This looks like a perfect setting to heal a broken foot, right?
How was YOUR week?
