Yesterday I spent $40 to put gas in my car. That was my only spending and it was budgeted for.
For dinner we had this chicken spaghetti and green beans. I didn't have the pimentos so I used shredded carrots instead. Otherwise I had all of the ingredients.
Today I took Kid # 3,4 and 5 to the mall to spend gift cards and Christmas money they had recieved. I bought a purse at JCPenny using a gift card and $7.95 of my own Christmas money that I had also recieved. So no money out of my household budget. Also we were good and ate before we went and did not get any treats there. I then came home and made grilled ham and cheese sandwiches using leftover ham and buns that we had. We had some other leftovers out of the frig too. It was a good dinner.
I had hoped to participate in Sharon's fiscal fast for this week. However since we are still on break from school/work and I am hosting the last family Christmas celebration here on Saturday, I just can't swing it this week. I do plan to start mine on Monday, January 6 when we are all back to a normal schedule.
We worked on cleaning Kid # 5's room and getting it organized today also. I got all the bedding changed and washed, now I just need to clean out the closet :(
Tomorrow I plan to work on the budget and finish our food inventory.
