This is the wagon I fell off of this week. Yes, I fell of the "Not spending money for takeout breakfast" wagon. I was doing so well, too! Here is how I did for 3 weeks:
Week of 01/25/10 - $0
Week of 02/01/10 - $3.01
Week of 02/08/10 - $0
So I did really well for 3 weeks.
Then Hubby had surgery last Friday. I discovered, since then, just how truly spoiled I am. Though Hubby is in a wheelchair and is pretty self-sufficient, I have been having to do a lot of stuff that I don't normally have to do. Like running all the errands, getting the mail, picking up prescriptions, washing dishes, doing laundry, etc. It doesn't sound like that much, but I leave home at 7am and get back from work at 6 or 6:30pm. (9 hours a day and 1 hour commute each way. Though, part of my commute IS waiting at the bus stop.)
I really, really, really appreciate how spoiled Hubby has let me become and I can't wait for him to be back on his feet. LOL!
Oh, yeah, the wagon. This week, I bought breakfast 3 mornings, just because I didn't think to fix something to bring from home. I DID bring my lunch every day, so I didn't fall UNDER the wagon, just off of it.
I will be baking this weekend so I can get back to saving money.....that I will then have to pay for medical bills. Ah, such is life.
