This week has been tough on the budget.

April 24th, 2007 at 11:05 am

Well, this week shopzilla got a hold of me and I started shopping like crazy, which means our "budget" which doesn't really exist anyways, got blown to smithereens. You see, normally there is no budget, we just pay bills, got out to eat or to a movie once a week, and save the rest from automatic deduction from checking to savings.

But alas, in saving so much and being so frugal, the "budget" doen't allow any extra spending. So when i do need (lol yeah need) to shop, the checking account gets dangerously close to 0, and I have to transfer funds so that it doesn't become negative. Frown

And the said part is that the shopping was soley for emtional reasons. My hubby was working late and I was bored and feeling sorry for myself. Ugh, a horrible reason to buy pants I still haven't worn.

    I want to give you credit for noticing why you spent money. Sounds like you at least had the cash to pay for your purchases...you didn't rack up more debt. Be kind to yourself and realize that you will do better next time.

    Next time try surfing for new recipes to try! Or write entries or questions at the forums... Don't beat yourself up too much, it happens to all of us once in a while.
