After my pay check this past Friday, I had to pay my last OSAP payment, pay my parents rent, put about $120 on my credit card, then I put $100 aside for savings which only left me with about $100 or so plus about $25 in my wallet. I decided to just take out the $100 in cash and that is it until I get paid next. I thought if I just have it all in cash then I know exactly how much I have left.
Yesterday I spent:
$3.77 Dairy queen (first time going there this year...sooo good).
$25 girls night out (this included 1 martini and food + tip) My friend is moving away so it was our last night out before she left.
$10 - food.
I got a salad from Subway on my break, but they are really big so I asked for two containers and I split it in half right away so I can eat the other half tomorrow.
And I must of spent various other small amounts because I have exactly $77 left to last until my next payday. I think I will only let myself bring a small amount of money to work each day that way I can't spend too much.
