Weekly Spending Recap 11/15-11/21

This past week was rather spend-y but most of it went towards gifts. It's funny, when I spend loads of money on myself and my shameless vanity (clothes, shoes, bags) I feel horribly guilty and selfish. I really love finding gifts for people (hardcore gift giver) and so I ended up spending a lot this past weekend. I know I said I would stick to a $100 budget for my best friend's wedding gift, but I got such a great deal on a 14-piece bedsheet set ($79, originally $300) and just in case she totally hates it, a cute hamper from her wedding registry ($30). I had to pay for express shipping to get it in time for the weekend, but it was worth it - originally $37, I had a coupon code for free standard shipping, which took off $16.50. Without further ado... recap below:

Monday
$10.50 Post office
+$140 Sold a bag
$11.96 Lunch
$27.19 AE (mom's gift)

Tuesday
No spend day!

Wednesday
$45.81 BF's mom's gift
$6.65 Post office
$140 Sold a bag

Thursday
$10.49 Post office

Friday
$2.18 Lunch (McD's)
+$200 Sprint rebate
$100 Living expenses

Saturday
$13 Lunch for BF & me
$143.42 Wedding gift

Sunday
$20 Petsmart
$27.34 Ulta (make-up)
$6.63 Bruno Mars CD on iTunes

= -$54.80

Haha I ended up with more money than I had in the bank after all that spending. I was trying to be really frugal. I didn't exceed my Christmas gift budget yet, but I still have a handful more to get.

I've been going crazy buying gifts online, & I feel like I've spend SO much money. Question for you, when you track your expenses do you just write them down or do you use something for budgeting?

I use Mint.com! It's the best budgeting/tracking software ever and it combines all your accounts. I am able to track my checking, savings, investments and credit cards. I love the fact that I can use it on my phone.

If you have a bunch of utility bills, you can use PageOnce! (pageonce.com)
