Spending Week 18 (July 25 – 31)

Last chance to finish the month off with a bang! I had FOUR no spend days and one unplanned, un-budgeted splurge. Stupid me. An average week overall and I was able to put a nice chunk on my student loan, the goal is to have that sucker below $5,000 for Sept 1st!

OFF budget:  $49.29 I was standing in front of my closet this week thinking I could use another few casual work tshirts and purge some of my older stuff. The next day my mom told me there was this crazy clearance sale at Smart Set, which is one of my fave clothing stores. I came home with 3 t’s, 1 dress-shirt, 1 skirt and one top: /fail. I’m going to have to put my debitcard and creditcard on ice this month I think.

    1. lol yep…. putting those cards in a block of ice is actually a nice deterrent to impulse spending… i’ve done it before and it worked like a charm! Maybe I just know myself too well :p
