Week 29 of 2014

I am getting back to normal on reading again and it feels good. While on FB I saw Cat Johnson had a football romance…or at least I think it is one since I haven’t gotten to read it yet. So I broke down and bought it! This is my first purchase in weeks and I am sad to see the budget get used, but also glad to see I have a new book!

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?

I have yet to read a Cat Johnson book and I know you’ve really enjoyed the ones you got before. Hope this one is just as good since its the first purchase in a while. I bought 3 books this week so my budget is done for the month. As I’ll be camping and away from wifi for the rest of the time, I won’t be tempted to make any purchases for the rest of the month.

Oh I like her books. I didn’t know she had a football one out! All of the ones I’ve read of hers have been cowboy-ified.
