Yesterday's Spending

July 8th, 2010 at 07:44 am

Yesterday I spent $5.24 for breakfast and $43 to fill up my gas tank. I have already allotted for the gas so it didn't change my budget much. I also spent $36 at Walmart for shorts for DS and socks for me and DD. I need to find an alternative to getting breakfast. It is like I am addicted to Cini-mini's from Burger King. I have had them every work morning for over two months. I truly think it is an addiction. I can't break it. I know I shouldn't be eating them, financially and health wise. But I can't help myself. I have never found myself so addicted to something. Even Cigarettes...I can take or leave them. I don't smoke at home only at work.But I can't break this hold over me. Send strength my way...

I am thinking about joining netflix. I tried the blockbuster version several years ago and I didn't find it appealing. I wouldn't watch the movies(not a big movie watcher) and would end up keeping them forever. It definately wasn't a good thing for us. But Netflix now has where you can stream movies and tv shows through the Wii. I think we might use this more. It is onlu $9 per month for unlimited streaming. I think it is worth a shot. The first month is free and we can always cancel if we don't use it.

Finally got the invoice prepared that my boss wanted to go out last week. I have sent it to him for approval. Hopefully he will approve today and I can get it mailed out. I also need to mail statements today. They usually go out on the first, but I haven't had a chance to get to them yet this month.

    Could you find an alternative home made choice breakfast, like buy the cinnamon rolls made by Pillsbury and use a coupon? You could cut them up into little pieces like mini cinnamon rolls. Cook them all at once on the weekend and freeze in individual ziplocs to be heated every morning?

    Do you have Redboxes in your area? And do you rent movies from the library for free? You can do this online with most libraries these days!

    I agree you seem to need to find an alternative. Try skipping for just one day...and then another. Think how much money that is per month that could go to debt!

    Redboxes are cheaper, but we do stream quite a bit on our netflix. I just discovered Cake Boss off of TLC, which is fun for us, because we don't have cable.
