Budgeting: Receipts, Week Two
A week's worth of food receipts for Boyfriend and your MatchGirl.
We tried to keep it in check, buying on special at Associated and making use of our pantry items. Missing from the receipts: iced coffee ($3), Friday and two ($6) for Saturday. Also food on the road - egg and cheese for me and breakfast burrito and coffee for Boyfriend ($11) on Saturday.
The only big spend for the week was brunch on Sunday in North Adams, MA, where we went for the weekend.
Although it's not food related, I was really glad that the hotel took the entire stay as a deposit on my debit card when I made the reservation in June. It really annoyed me at the time (that could have had something to do with the tone of voice of the woman on the other end of the line), but it was really nice not to have to worry about that coming back into this week.
Your MatchGirl gets paid twice a month and Boyfriend is still waiting to hear from unemployment while he searches for a new job, so budgeting is more important than ever.
Thanks so much, to all of you, for your continued support!
