As budget week #3 came to a close, I started realizing that I had finally done the unthinkable; I had come in under budget!
Woo hoo for me! Ok, it was less than $2 under budget, but I'm still pretty happy with myself. The lesson learned so far is that you really can't plan every little thing that may come up, and $30/week will not cover every necessity much less the random things you may want.
When it comes to budgeting, I'm really not that great. However, this experience has changed how I view even simple food purchases. I went with spinach and cheese tortellini over the prosciutto and cheese borsetti because the former was $1 less. Guess what? It was delicious!
This is now the last week of my $30/week budget. Wish me luck!
Happy but not hungry,
