Omg! I can't believe I spent so little this week, if only I could do that EVERY week! What's even crazier is that I thought I spent so much this weekend. If we didn't eat out SO much this weekend I would have spent less. On Saturday I wanted to go to the outlets so the BF drove me and I bought him lunch at a Mexican joint (his favorite food) so he could take me (it's 30 minutes away). Ever since starting this blog I have really held myself back from impulse shopping, and it showed when we went to the outlets. I went into a TON of stores - Polo Ralph Lauren, GAP, Puma, Adidas, and so many more I can't remember. I even tried on some clothes but I never wanted to buy anything. In the past I wouldn't have thought twice! I didn't need anything besides some workout clothes but I couldn't find anything I LOVED so I didn't buy anything. BF was extremely impressed and kept saying "Wow we are making good time, in and out!" If you knew me before, this is definitely not how I used to shop. I would try on tons of clothes and then end up buying a couple. On Sunday, I took out the BF and his parents to lunch at Souplantation. $40 for 4 people is a really good deal and for a buffet, yummy!

I didn't work out as much as I wanted to this week because I was lazy on Saturday and Sunday. I wanted to go to 24SET class on Saturday and Zumba on Sunday but the BF claimed that he never sees me anymore so I decided to spend time with him and skip the classes (BF started the new job so he needs to figure out his schedule before starting to go to the gym again). Also I needed a rest day on Saturday. When I go running, I go with the BF so he likes it when I run with him instead of going to the gym....but you all know I love taking classes at the gym!

Backtracking to Friday, BF and I had our first monthly financial meeting. So far we have about 12% of our down payment for our condo but we are aiming for 20%, and it will probably take about 6 months. It's nice to talk about money together and to see where we both are at.

You're lucky you and your bf are on the same page when it comes to saving (and working out!). You can help motivate each other, and you can't let the other one down.

Looks like you had a great week of spending (or lack there of).

I agree with above commenter. The live-in bf and I are not totally on the same page. He's a spender and I'm a saver. He goes to the gym 5 times per week and I stopped going at all 2 years ago. It'd be nice to be on the same page, especially for the $ situation. Eventually, if we were to get more serious, we're going to have to work that out. Not looking forward to it though, I can see a lot of hard work between us in that respect.

Doesn't being aware of your financial situation make shopping so much less fun? I used to be the same way, but being in touch with my finances has definitely lowered my clothing bills considerably!
