OK, friends, we’re going to look at this as a fun challenge!
I have $100 to last the next 18 days.
Thankfully, there are only two weekends in there, so only two grocery shops. The goal is $40 for each grocery shop and $20 for everything else. School supplies/books are all bought, so we just won’t have any spendy social events til February. I also previously stocked up on some important foodstuffs, like coffee – enough to see me through – but I didn’t have full stocks of everything yet so some creativity will still be required. I had planned earlier on these being lean weeks, but not quite this lean.
We can do this, people!
I also look at this as a great opportunity to focus on the simple things while getting started back at school tomorrow. If I can’t go spend money on crap, it’s a wonderful chance to for that and the goals I set out in previous posts. Plus, I’ve been wanting to host a BYOB games night for a while – perhaps now is the time!
