Weekly Spending/Fitness Recap 5/23-5/29/2011

I had an awesome week last week in terms of no spend days. I brought lunch to work and I'm finally getting back into that routine again. For some reason I fell off the bandwagon after that week long business trip in April! I really forgot how easy it is to save money during the work week. Anyway, leave it to me to buy $88 ankle boots the last day of my marvelous cheap week. 

Right now my method is that whatever is left in my checking account I can use to whatever my heart desires and that's what I decided to spend it on. The boots were originally $225 + s/h but I found them on sale at Bloomie's for $90 and I got $18 off using a coupon (still had to pay for tax). As you all know I'm a returnaholic so who knows, I may end up returning them if I don't like them (I ordered them online).

So that's the reason why I mentioned a shopping fund in my previous post. Thank you btw for all your comments and input, I always appreciate feedback! You all know that I buy impulsively and that's something I need to work on. I also need to continue to bring lunch to work. It's healthy (I pack salad or sandwiches and I eat greek yogurt with fruits for b-fast), easy, and saves me SO much money and gas.

Returnaholic. Can't describe yourself any better. Always makes me laugh knowing you take window shopping to another level. At least you get to find out if you really like it and save money if you don't.

And I like your idea, whatever is left over is free spending. Great idea :)

Hahah Rafiki I will always think of you now every time I return something. I am SUCH a returnaholic and I'm sure that's not a good thing!

Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there superb blog! Does running a blog like this require
a large amount of work? I have absolutely no knowledge of
programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon.

Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or techniques
for new blog owners please share. I understand this is
off subject however I simply had to ask.
Thanks!
