Weekly Spending/Fitness Recap 5/16-5/22/2011

Last week's recap is 2 days late this week. I have been so busy with work and life. Don't I say that every week though? So last week's spending hurt only because I had to pay for my LSAT class. I decided to just pay for it in full instead of saving up because I sold my bag. It's a great feeling to actually pay for my education because my parents have paid for my 16 years of private school and also college. I'm baking red velvet cupcakes for a coworker's birthday this week, which is why my grocery spending was high. It hurt to spend that much but I had to buy a new cupcake pan, and all the ingredients. I don't make boxed cake!

A goal this week is to buy groceries and pack lunch each day next week. I have been doing great this week and already have 3 no spend days yay! Not eating out during the week really alleviates my spending for the week.

Monday
$50.71 Petco (dog food)$4.13 Lunch

Tuesday
$44.17 Gas (ouch!)

Wednesday
NO SPEND DAY! (it's been awhile...finally!)

Thursday
$11.47 Lunch
+950 Sold my dear Balenciaga

Friday
$18.46 Groceries
Turbo Kickboxing - 1 hour

Saturday
$20 Lunch and drinks for 2

Sunday
$70.32 Groceries
$760 LSAT class (half off!)

TOTAL SPENDING: $979.26 ($219.26 if you don't count the lsat class)
Sales: $950
Difference: $29.26

LOL!

When my sister and I made cake from scratch, we did the exact same thing. We got a baking pan and all the ingredients, and laughed that it was cheaper to just buy the pre-made cakes... and pre-made icing.

But we both know that home-made goodies beat store bought stuff any day. Unless it's from a super delicious bakery. :)

I love love love red velvet cupcakes!! I know your grocery bill was high, but delicious cupcakes are such a relatively inexpensive delight.

Don't worry! The $70 wasn't ALL for cupcakes..that would be insane hahaha. I might have returned it all and bought box cake.

I was able to buy groceries that lasted me the entire week so far and should last me until tomorrow night!

I had no idea a bag could cost that much lol. I would back flip if I ever walked into a store and see more than one bag in that price range.. No wonder women can fit so much stuff into those handbags. Must have a black hole in it lol.

Anyways. I love me some baked goods especially when they are now exiting the oven and are nice and warm.... I want cookies now :)
