Weekly Spending

I haven't posted much budget wise lately but I promise I'm getting back into it. I am now doing by budgets in two week time frames according to my pay periods. I find this the most sensible way to do it. I get paid on Fridays so my budget starts that Friday and goes until the second Thursday after. I hope that makes sense to you guys. So i've decided that when I post my weekly spending it will go Friday - Thursday to coincide with my budget.

So here is my weekly spending from Feb 4th (payday) to Feb 11th.

Fri - 2.65 lunch, $2.62 ice cream, $27.09 mandarin, gas $22.00

Sat- $3.44 fries

Sun: $0

Mon: $10.77 breakfast, $3.04 food basics

Tues: $3.44 fries

Wed: $2.92 food

Thurs: $3.13 fries

Total: $81.10

Basically I spend all my money on food. This is because I live with my parents and they suck at grocery shopping which means I am always buying lunch at work. Today though, I did go out and get some frozen dinner stuff to take to work this week. Even though its not necessarily less money spent overall, its probably less calories overall. There was some good ones on sale for $2 each such as lasagna, canneloni etc and all are under 400 calories. I also got some of those Crispy Minis (dill pickle is my favourite) and some vanilla yogurt. So hopefully I won't be spending anything on junky food this week!

Oh except I do have that Bon Jovi concert on Tues (tres excited!!!!) and I think we are maybe going out for dinner before hand. So there will be some money spent there but oh well.
