No spend March – week 2 update

This week was definitely not as strong as last week!!

I spent $22.74 at Target for stuff for Troy’s training (shorts, special socks, etc.).
I spent another $11.67 at Safeway for misc. items.
I spent $61.98 at Costco for some food and two fire extinguishers.  Ours were expired, and frankly, safety is more important than a challenge.

Total “out” of budget spent this week: $96.39

In the “win” category, I dropped off items at Goodwill without walking in to the store to browse.  I’m finding that just staying out of the stores is saving a boatload of money.  I know, quite the epiphany, eh?

Yo yo, head’s up, this post might contain affiliate links which help to support my site. And my canning, seed buying, and aggressive saving habits.

Making this recipe or others?

  1. I find staying out of physical stores easier than on-line stores!

    • I hear you on that one! I’ve heard of people deleting any stored credit cards on websites (Amazon, etc.) to make it more challenging to order things.

      I just spent $18 on Amazon today which you guys will hear more about next week! Ugh.
