As of Monday I am on a $45/week budget. My recent forays into budgeting didn't really work out because I limited myself too much. $45 is completely doable, right?
So it's Wednesday. I've been on this budget since Monday. As of today, I have spent $37.44. I went through my receipts, and I have been good and mostly sticking to what I need. That "mostly" is what gets me, though. $2 for Costco frozen yogurt was a splurge today. $2.18 for McDonald's yesterday was not really necessary. Did I need that frozen pizza? No, but at $3.99 it's pretty good for Frescheta. Sigh. We'll see how this plays out.
