The spending has to stop!

Yesterday I went to my Sisters house to help her pack. Unfortunately I didn't think to bring my lunch, so when it was time to eat we had to go get something ;( Sadly, I spent $7 on lunch. That brings my monthly total up to $22 if I don't count the $8 I spent at Mooyah (which Aaron said I could take out of his budget since he hasn't used any...haha!).

Today we decided to go have Chipotle for lunch. Aaron had the day off and we needed to run some errands, so we thought it would be nice to grab some lunch. We haven't had Chipotle in like 3 or 4 weeks and we used to eat it at least once or twice a week. That was almost $18. So we're up to $48 in our family budget for the month. It would be nice if we could leave it at that and not spend anymore :)

I really need to figure out how to get through the next 11 days without spending too much! And my birthday is coming up in 10 days, so I'm sure we're going to want to go out to dinner. I told Aaron he could cook for me and he just laughed! haha!


  1. Maybe your parents need to take you out for your birthday... ;)

  2. Just order cheaply off the menu, if that's possible. Stay strong...*Hugs*
