I was able to keep to 20 no spend days for the month which pleased me very much!!
This month I was good!
- Groceries: $84.34 ($4.34 over budget, but I am usually so far under this doesn't bother me)
- Gas: $79.00 (yeah! $1 under budget!!)
- Dining out: $54.42 (much better than last month)
- Entertainment: $10.00
- Gifts: $19.38
- Clothing: $19.60
I earned $50.92 from surveys and freebies I received were Nivea face cream, Aveeno night cream and a year membership to Blockbuster Rewards. (my payment for the $125 focus group won't hit until next month).
I also added $3653 to my savings account. Next month I will add $700 from my paychecks and $85.44 from eBates. I am going to be on vacation Aug. 1-10, but the things I have planned should keep my spending in check, so I am anticipating another good savings month. Not as good as last month because I am not expecting big payments, but with my frugal ways, I'm sure I will be able to add another healthy chunk to boost my savings.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer, getting out and enjoying some time outdoors! I will check in periodically while I'm on vacation, but may not post much, depends on what I end up doing. Enjoy!!
