Weekly Spending – 4/28/13 – 5/04/13

Today I’ll be continuing my weekly spending posts as a summary to keep tracking of my extra spending. My weekly spending for this week consists of the following:

Sunday 4/28:

Monday 4/29:
Gas – $10

Tuesday 4/30:

Wednesday 5/01:

Thursday 5/02:
Lunch – $11

Friday 5/03:

Saturday 5/04:

Total Week Spending: $21

First of all – can’t believe that it is May already…looking forward to the warmer weather finally arriving! Gas spending for this week consisted of $10 on Monday – not bad at all. It seems that gas prices are slowly creeping back up for the summer though. I also spent $11 on Thursday for dinner. Normally I wouldn’t really go out for lunch during the week but my boss suggested we should go to lunch as a team, and I always think this is a good opportunity for networking and building relationships. At least I didn’t have to make lunch on Thursday night for Friday! $21 for the entire week is really good I think, but this is definitely at the low end of the scale for me. We’ll see if I can keep it up throughout the month.

    1. Thank you, I definitely don’t feel bad at all. I feel like it’s money well spent in those sort of situations, sort of like an investment in myself. Plus I get to have some fun 🙂

  1. Great week! I just found your blog from my friend Pretired Nick, and I’m sure glad I have. My wife graduates in a week and I began a PhD in 3 weeks! We write about our weekly spending too. Seems like we’re doing a similar thing!

    Keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks – this is probably as low as my budget will ever go for now haha. Congrats to her! I’m a reader of your blog now as well 🙂 It’s definitely helped me for now, I may just turn it into a monthly thing but it’s great to be able to see my expenses right in front of my face.
