I can't believe that we are already half way through January. Time is just flying by. My next month is booked solid with Bookfair, work, kid stuff, school vacation, oh....and G-man is planing on working on our bathroom. *shaking head* Seriously, does he really think NOW is the best time to do this??
On to the week....
The Good: I was overflowing with "good" last week. It hasn't been a "bad" week, just not overwhelmingly good. I am loving the cash system for groceries. I am much more aware of what I am buying, and it is forcing me to be a little more creative. We still have $16 left in the jar until Wednesday, when we replenish the funds. And other than milk and fresh fruit, we have everything we need. Also, I made my first $15 in side hustle....I sold my yellow pages!! Some guy was paying $5 a book. CRAZY!
The Bad: The mortgage refi is still not locked up. I spoke to MG yesterday, and they are all still confident that it will be fine. If the refi falls through, my current budget won't work, and I will have to redo some line items. And then it will be TIGHT.
The Ugly: I failed my no-eating out challenge as an individual (family, we are still good). I had bookfair stuff on Friday night, so my co-chair and I had to go shopping for supplies. We decided to get dinner out, sort of a Mom's Night Out. I spoke to G-man about it beforehand, and he wanted me to do it. So I spent $17 on Chinese food (and a very yummy cocktail!!!). Add in when I bought my boss and myself lunch....and this is a clear failure.
How was your week??? What are your GBUs?
