Another week under our belt. Let's check and see how we did:
The Good: Um....well.....um...... Not much to report here. Usually I can find something positive about our financial week, but I am kind of at a loss this week. Sorry folks!
The Bad: Where do I even start??? In an attempt to not completely beat myself up, I am just going to pick one thing (I could go on and on about all the bad stuff, but really....is it going to help???). As part of the kids' birthday family day out, we took them to the movies. A rare treat around our house. We were supposed to go to a 10:45am show...but the theater was having technical problems and wasn't showing our movie. We ended up going to another theater that evening and I remember why we 1) don't go to the movies, and 2) don't go in the evening.
Folks....the admission price for 2 adults and 2 children: $35.50. And it wasn't even in 3-D! We got a large popcorn and large drink to share (free refills!), and a bottle of water for Bossy. $15. The bottle of water was $5 just for that! So our movie excursion was $50.50. Cute movie....kids liked it. But $50???????
The Ugly: Uncontrolled spending. Period. We are entering the 2 month period of time where our finances go wanky and I am glad we caught it all fairly quickly. My plan to have Student Loan 2 paid off by November is probably shot as I un-do what I have just done. I am still planning on having it paid off by the end of the year though!!
So....spill it. What are your GBUs?
