Day 29 (and slight fail)

July 30th, 2012 at 09:45 am

Dang. It's not going to happen. I'm going to be close, but I'm not going to keep it under $300. Frown I have to get gas, but I spent $7 on sunglasses yesterday. Bf wanted to go out on the boat again, so he called his friend and off we went.

On Saturday I learned that sunglasses are very nice to have on the boat because you're not squinting your eyes against the wind. I don't own any sunglasses. So I spent $7 on a pair of cheap ones. I knew what I was doing, so I take total responsibility, but I'm disappointed none-the-less. I need to get gas--about $5 should get me to work and back tomorrow. So, I'm going to go over by $3.

You could say that if I took my can money and used it, I wouldn't be going over. Or if I didn't put all my change into my change jar, I might have been OK.

I'm going to look at this as a learning lesson and not an epic fail. I know there are other things I could have done to not put me so close, but as my first time trying this I think I did OK.

Two more days! I wonder if there will be a spending backlash against all that I have not bought this month?

Day 29 Numbers:

Spend: $7
Left: $2
In: $0

    You still did very well for the month. I think you should consider it a success.

    Do you have any other option for getting to work tomorrow? Can you catch a ride, or walk?

  3. MissAngel Says:

    Nope, I have to drive. It's 13 miles one way and there isn't any public transportation. Frown I'm out in the country and none of my co-workers have quite the same schedule I do.

    I like how you're thinking outside the box!

    For future reference, try buying your sunglasses at the thrift store. I buy all of mine there. Most of them are new with stickers still on, donated by retailers, and I pay about $2 a pair!
