Weekly spending:

Monday: $0
Tuesday: Admission for two to local comedy show and one cup of drip coffee - $11.50
Wednesday: $0
Thursday: Renewed my subscription to This Old House (I LOVE this mag and they offered me two years for $10!!! How could I resist?) - $10
Friday: - The Beautiful Girls CD - $12.10 inc. shipping (I've heard great things about this CD and my curiosity finally caught me, AND the price dropped $3!)
Saturday: $0
Sunday: KFC (bought everyone dinner, except me of course) - $20.23, Taco Bell (my bean burrito) - $1.06

Total = $53.89

Pretty good up until Sunday! And I 100% loved every purchase until then, so I find that very very frugal indeed. The Sunday chicken isn't so bad though, because they've been buying us dinner here and there.

*I should note that Matt spent about $7 on individual cigars, because he's trying to quit smoking and buying smokes individually is much less convenient. Please send your prayers to Matt's smoking cessation! He's cut back, but it's still a work in progress.*

So if you count Matt's cigars, $60.89 - still a fifth of what we spent last week!

OH yes- you beat me by about $100- hahahah! I had a feeling that was going to happen. I have been horrible lately. I haven't even considered being frugal honestly. Shame!

See, that's why we have to keep up the challenge - it at least makes you think twice - "How much do I REALLY want/ need this?" And frugality is good for our debt AND the environment. Hooray for less consumption!

I know we've been bad lately, but the frugality that we practiced in the last month and a half or whatever, has helped me pay off like 2 or 3 credit cards and get caught up. Spectacular!

It's probably the best idea ever. It's amazing how $5 here, $10 there can add up so much when you don't think about it!
