Wow - First Week of April Over Already!!
The extras are killing me this month. Nothing huge but added together they are causing a serious cash shortage. So far the extras have included $74.74 for car maintenance, $56.46 for my internet security/virus check etc renewal, $38.40 for Turbotax, iTunes (only $1.29) and two restaurant meals. Luckily for Jambalaya I had one of those "Groupons" that I purchased a few months ago - I paid $25.00 for a $50.00 coupon. The server was really cute so I gave him a big tip - thanks Michael :)
Tomorrow night is our dinner out at Saffrons. It's a restaurant completely staffed by students and staff of the Hospitality program at our local college. I've eaten there once and it was so amazing. Very professional, very classy, very good food and wine. Hoo boy! I've got to keep my spending in check somehow...once the wine gets flowing it's so easy to throw caution to the wind! I still haven't even figured out yet how I'm going to pay for it!
Other "unique" spends coming up - volleyball registration ($50), trailer lot fee for the season ($1740.00), the painting I bought from my brother ($250 - a steal!!), Easter treats for my daughter (?) and I hope that's it!!! This is turning out to be way worse than March. It looks like I need a MISC savings account for all of these once a year little bits and pieces. What a drag!
How's your spending going - are you on track so far?? I hope you're doing better than I am!
