Cutting the Budget 2014

left for May 2014

Week 19 of 2014

Week 19 and I didn’t spend any money on books. *Cries* I got bad news on my foot…well, bad news to me to see it might be a year before I can walk 3 miles a day. He still wants me off it and recommends I rent a wheelchair to get around.

Oh, oh, oh…I got a MacBook Pro for Mother’s Day and my birthday that is next weekend. So I have been spending time getting it ready instead of reading or even spending money. It is totally awesome and I love working on it.

So no new books, which is ok, since I am so far behind on my TBR pile.

How was your week?

Sorry to hear the new prognosis on the foot, but that’s great news about the new Mac.

I am pleased to report that for the first time in weeks I bought nothing.

But… I picked up 2 freebies and 8 review books. Haha! I would be a rare week that I didn’t acquire a new book.

At least, I made no purchases. This leaves me with my full $25 still.

Off I go to attack the review pile (and do some chores, grrrr).
