We are at the end of week two of our NO Spending Spree, and things are going quite well. Besides our bills, the only other spending that was done this week was on milk, and a bottle of water. My husband went to pick up the milk from a local farmer, and forgot to take cash with him. So to get cash back, he had to buy a bottle of water from the grocery store that was nearby.
When he came home with that bottle of water, I was very upset with him (in fact you might describe me as a volcano on the verge of exploding). I have a lot people reading my blog, expecting us to do this perfectly and he goes and gets a bottle of water?? He of course pointed out that his only other options would have been to use another bank’s ATM and then end up paying more in fees, or he would have had to drive back to get cash. This would have cost us more in gas money.
So after I calmed down and averted the pending explosion, I realized I was being ridiculous over a bottle of water. The point of the NO Spending Spree is to help us save money, learn to be better at planning ahead and also teach our children to be smart planners. While I would have preferred him to remember to take cash, he did the smartest thing that would cost us the least amount of money in that situation.
Don’t worry guys and gals, he got a big hug and I apologized for being such a grump over a dumb water bottle.
I didn’t go to the farmer’s market this week, because I just couldn’t brave the heat. The Georgia humidity is terrible right now. How will I ever survive the rest of the Summer? Meal planning is going well, and we are getting plenty of greens, drinking aloe vera lemonade, and have a diet filled with good proteins, whole grains and preserved fruit.
Cost of Milk: $24
Cost of Said Water Bottle: $1.63
