The end of Spendometer

June 15th, 2007 at 12:24 pm

Well, this is the end of my daily spending journal. I decided to put an end to it because, well, it was boring! I guess that's a good thing though.

We're still using cash only and being very frugal for the next couple of weeks. Overall, it's not too bad. The only time it's truely hard to be thrifty is when we're out with our friends who want to constantly shop and buy drinks from Starbucks.

Recently, I paid down one credit card that had a balance of $1,500. Next, I shall tackle my credit card with a $2,000 balance. Wish me luck! Smile

I tried to break the cash-only plan again today! Funny how hard it is to change old ways... Well the reason was that I pulled into the gas station early in the morning, on empty, and the station wasn't open yet so i could only use a card.

I drove to the next station that was open, and paid cash!

$18 on gas
$2 on lunch at Jack-in-the-box

I'm adding a new category called Spendometer which will be a daily tracking of what I spend my cash on. I think it'll help keep me honest and also help show where our money goes now that we're on a cash-only plan.

$14 on gas
