A quick recap of the few goals I made for the week:
- Low Spend Week. We had 4 No Spend days this week! And could have been 5 but I spontaneously bought soup at work one day for lunch. I just couldn't resit the notion of homemade soup to go with my salad. It was $4.95 with tax so we'll count this as a Low Spend day. The other two days of the week the family ate out so these didn't make the grade.
- No sugar. I met this goal with average success. I ate one cookie one day at work (and it was a tiny, small one). I'd say I kept on track and turned aside a few other opportunities to eat sugary things.
- Taxes. Started the taxes. I can't ever remember a year when I started taxes this early. With any hope I'll be able to complete and file next month. This would be without precedent since I usually am a April filer.
How did you do with your budget this past week? How is January coming to an end for your budgeting?
