An Early End to Budget Week #4

This morning, I hadn't spent a penny of my $30 for the week, and had a little left over from last week. Then I went to Starbucks, and watched $4 float away. Ok, it's only $4, right?

After work I went grocery shopping. $31 and some change later, I am officially over budget.

The final result? $30/week is hard and NOT fun. If you have any random stuff come up, you'll go over. If I had been including gas, car stuff, prescriptions, etc., then I would never make it.

However, this was a good experience and I look forward to working toward my next goal: $5000 saved by the end of 2012. Hopefully that goal will go better than this one!

Peppermint mocha-ed out,



  1. I think you'll definitely be able to save $5,000 over the course of 2012. Until then, buy whatever your heart desires! :P

  2. Hey! You tried, thats what counts. And you did save money while you were trying. We all need to remember that instant gratification is not always the best thing for us!
    I think you did a great thing, and learned alot about yourself and your will power.
