I ended Friday with $83.94 left of the paycheck to last for the next seven days. Then the bank statement came in Saturday's mail. Despite my diligence, my figures were off by $4.69. In the bank's favor, naturally.
So my $83.94 became $79.25 without my even spending anything.
Two other purchases were made over the weekend:
Stamps - $7.92
Wiper blades for hubby's car - $17.31
Now I'm at $54.02 until Friday. I think we can do it. Who am I kidding? We have to do it.
Meantime, I'm going to get serious about the food budget and going cash-only via the envelope system. Thanks for all the encouraging ideas on this one, Sarah, Little Lamb, Louise, Jane and Jolie.
Pot roast from the freezer is in the crock pot for dinner. At least we're still eating well.
