This was a good week. I kept my spending to a minimum, and was able to bring in some extra income. I sent in my receipts to my extended health care provider ($101.99), and I should receive a cheque in the mail sometime in the next 2-3 weeks for the full amount.

I got that MSP refund, and then spent it right away on the dress. I could have saved it, maybe should have saved it. But what’s done is done and the dress is beautiful. Perfect for my upcoming trips to hot destinations.

Spending Recap: May 31-June 6, 2010

Monday 31st
$14.60 dinner
$11.99 movie (Sex and the City 2)

Tuesday 1st
No Spend Day!

Wednesday 2nd
$75.87 dinner (Cactus Club) – do not get me started on how over-priced CC is. I had no idea. And the food wasn’t even that good. Now we will never go again. It was for BF’s birthday.
$23.98 movie (MacGruber) – paid for BF b/c it was his birthday

Thursday 3rd
No Spend Day!

Friday 4th
$8.38 Subway (bought lunch for my boss & I)

$22.89 Target (make-up) – blush & pressed powder, that will last me until close to the end of the year

Sunday 6th
$10.98 Taco Bell

TOTAL = $210.12

The $$ for BF’s birthday date has come out of my Travel Fund, so that it doesn’t affect this month’s budget. Clearly it’s not a “travel” related expense, but I’ve always used the Travel Fund as a loose term. It’s also for Entertainment too, like sports events, concerts, etc. if I can’t find a way to wiggle those expenses into my monthly budget.
