Weekly Spending and Fitness Recap 3/21-3/27/2011

Wow, all I could manage to post for the past week are 2 back to back spending and fitness recaps. I apologize for the sporadic and minimal effort posting, I hope to resume posting to normal frequency ASAP! This week was a total fail in terms of working out because of an impromptu road trip that BF planned to visit my best friend! It was so much fun and he even paid for most of our gas and food for the trip.

I plan to step it up this week for working out in addition to aiming for spending less, but I am going to the salon today as I mentioned in my last post. The stylist quoted me about $200ish so I am rather nervous to be spending that much. I hope that the color and cut turn out as fabulous as all the photos I have seen and reviews I have read. Wish me luck! This is the most I have ever spent on my hair in one trip!

I know this current week will be worse in terms of spending so it's nice to see a low amount for this past week. I haven't been as aggressive in putting money in my down payment fund and I should really get back on track with that. I have been putting in about $600-700 per paycheck but I would like to get back to putting $900-1000 per paycheck like I used to before this month. I also added more to my travel fund and it currently sits at $900ish. I also have a lot of returns to make... some items from my F21 order, my Shoebuy order (those leather mocs I talked about, didn't work out) and a Macy's Christmas gift that my dad wants me to return for him. I should be getting about $150 back total :)

So impressed that you can run for 2 hours at a time. You are a rock star! Do you do races, or just run for fun?
I so need to get back on track with my spending. It gets hard to pick up in the middle of the month, so I may take the lazy way out & start fresh in April. :-)

That's amazing that you can run for 2 hours! Are you training for a marathon or half? :)

I tried to do a spending recap, and so far, I only have 3 no spend days in all or March...

Wow! This is soo inspiring! My husband and I want to start tracking our spending because I am a shopaholic! My closet if full of stuff I never wear! It's ridiculous! I'm gonna try that mint thingy.

I'm excited for your haircut -- I almost never spend money on my hair, but this month I decided to get color and a style, too. I bought Groupons for it, to lower the price, and I feel comfortable with the decision because, like you, I thought about it carefully rather than doing it as an impulse. Which means it's "wise spending!"

That's a really good spending for 1 week! Hope that you stay on track with your contributions to your savings account. I just opened my own account with Aurora Bank and I set up automatic withdrawals 2 times a month so that I can reach my goals...I also aim to save about $1k each month, we'll see how that goes. Hope your hair looks as fab as you dreamed of ;)
