Cutting the Budget 2014

left for July 2014

Week 27 & 28 of 2014

The last few weeks have been hard. Not on the budget but on me personally. A trip to NY kept me busy and not buying books, nor reading. This week, my stepdad’s cancer took a bad turn and he passed away Thursday night. I just couldn’t read nor be interested enough to read. While I lowered the budget, it looks to be safe this month.

How was your week?

Delighted Readers Cutting the Budget Rules for 2014

  • $40.00 $35.00 $30.00 a month spending limit on bound & ebooks – see I am cutting the budget!
  • $22.95/month for 2 Audible Credits (Currently have 1) – Changed to $14.95 for one credit a month. Again I cut my budget…and audio book credits.
  • Taxes are included in book prices
  • Weekly report on what was spent
  • Use includes coupon, code, or subscription services
  • Budget includes ebooks, bound books, and audio books
  • Books received as gifts, won or bought with a gift card can be included but they cost you nothing since you didn’t actually spend your own money on them. So keep using them and keeping your budget healthy!

How are you cutting your budget but still getting to read everything you want?

You’ve had a hard go of it for months now particularly with your step-dad fighting the cancer and the infections. Wishing you well as you and your family draw comfort from each other.

No purchases for me this week or the last either! I just got a pile of review books so that will keep me busy for some time. I’m still at my original $25.
