July 4th sunk me

July 7th, 2014 at 01:11 pm

Ugh! Why do I do this to myself?

First off, I bought groceries $49.45 and don't ya know they were gone in a day! Then I got gas, another $47.32. Also gone before the weekend was up. Then I had to get wood chips for the animals and goats feed...another $30 gone.

We went to a free pool but dear hubby wanted to get the kids a snack, $50 later it was more like dinner delivered pool side. So much for free swimming. He likes to buy more now that he is working. Frown

Then on the way home "Oh mama, mamma fireworks half off." Yes, I caved, $10 down the drain.

$200 gone in what, a day! How am I ever going to get ahead spending money like this. I showed my husband how much lower our account was and he shrugged, "It will be taken care of dear." I know it will, but why does it have to go so fast?

    Sometimes that it is the way we roll, too - tons of $ with nothing to show for it. At least it sounds like you've had a good time (aside for the hay and gas)!

    Yeah, I spent more than I intended to. Holidays will do that occasionally. Good luck getting back on track!

    Chalk it up to the holiday and plan better for the future. For next year, note how much you spent this year and save ahead. A mini spending plan for the next 4th of July.
