Broke the rules

I broke one of my new year’s resolutions last week and in the process, I also led myself to lose the “$75 Challenge” for last week.   When I went to the Raptor game with my Dad on wednesday, we tried a couple of restaurants downtown and found both of them had wait times for tables.   We then settled on McDonald’s.   Actually my Dad settled and i didn’t say NO.   I should have but I didn’t.   I broke my fast food resolution and when I went out the next night, I spent the last of my money for the week and went over by $11.   I need to get better on the $75 over the next month.   I knew I was going out a lot last week, I should have planned better and said “NO” to some things.

    So I guess I don’t understand the $75 challenge, Bob; can you explain? Bummer about you losing it though.

      It is a practice in saving money and trying to cut back in our spending. We start the week with $75 in our pocket and we are not allowed to spend more than that. Gas is not included but groceries, entertainment and whatever else is all included.

    Fast food is so hard! It’s not as cheap as it seems. Still $11 isn’t terrible, and for your 1st month doing it, I’d say that’s pretty good. 🙂 Roughly 15%? Not bad.

    Hey, things still on for the end of the month living situation?
