Week 12 of 2014

Darn this wasn’t a week for me to buy much…see I broke off a bone in my heel last weekend and it torn my Achilles heel. So now I am faced with an expensive surgery in a week and half. So I am cinching my belt more and trying to not spend the last $25 this month…let’s see how I make out next weekend. Good thing I am on spring break with the family next week and internet is not easily accessible to go binge spending!

  • Well that’s one way to keep from spending, but I don’t recommend breaking bones as a viable method. 😉 I didn’t spend any money this week either so I’m still holding at $5 left. I did pick up a few review books and freebies.

    That’s not a great way to end the winter, but let’s see how you are going to manage without buying a thing until April and we have the new BDB on the 1st. Good Luck!

  • Geez Louise, I have to put my post up. Another weekend I forgot to post my budget. Great week Shari! I did pretty good and didn’t spend much. I’ll know how much damage i did or didn’t do once I get tally everything up.
