July Transportation Challenge: Week #2

Well, today marks the end of Week #2 for the July Transportation Challenge.

I spent $19 on FareSaver bus tickets the other day (for 10), and I’ve used 2 of them so far. Oh, and I took a taxi once, which cost me $13. So I’m up to $59.50/$150. The taxi was unexpected, and I probably didn’t need to take it – but what’s done is done.

July Transportation Challenge: Week #1

Well, it’s the end of Week #1, of the July Transportation Challenge. Just to remind everyone, this will be my last time hosting the monthly challenges. If anybody else would like to host the next monthly challenge, just let me know. :) Otherwise, it was a good run while it lasted.

Just so you know, the recaps for this month will be on July 15, 23 & 31.

I’ve currently spent $27.50 on transportation – $20 to BF for gas, and $7.50 to park for my interview today. Yeah, that’s right. $7.50. For less than 2 hours. OUTRAGEOUS!

June Dining Out Challenge: Week #4

That’s it, we’re done!

I went $10 over … which I’m happy about, but I also know that I could have hit my mark had I kept a little tighter watch on what I was spending.

On one last note, have you signed up for the July Transportation Challenge yet? This will be the last time I’ll host my monthly challenge. If anyone wants to take over and host the next one, please let me know. :)

How did you do this month with the June Dining Out Challenge?
