Week Ending July 5th

July 6th, 2008 at 05:10 pm

We went over our budget slightly. I'm trying to budget $200/week for all discretionary expenses ($200 X 4 = $800 and is lumped together under food).

Clothes - $59
Groceries - $92
Eating Out - $118

Total - $269

DH had to buy a pair of softball shoes out of the blue.

Groceries could have been lower except I had to buy extra groceries for a get together we were planning for 7/4. Unfortunately, our friends couldn't make it at the last minute. That's okay, we'll just eat the burgers and hot dogs over the next few days.

Eating out was high since I was sick as a dog and couldn't do anything this past week. DH had to buy dinner a few times.

My plan is to lower our $200 this week by $69. So we've got a $131 this week. I've already done grocery today and luckily didn't have to buy very much since I've got a lot of meats stocked up in the freezer.

DH is putting another crimp in my budget. He's planning on going golfing and attending NHRA drag racing this weekend.

I'll have to make sure that I only buy necessities this week and no eating out except a little treat for the kids.

    My DH seems to buy things out of the blue too. I guess it is called lack of communication! Frustrating for sure, but it can be fixed.
