I swear I try to be good and not spend money but there's always something going on or there's stuff we need. So here's what we're spending our money on, below are all our weekend expenses:
H.E.B: Went to HEB Friday night and spent $200. I swear we didn't get that much stuff or baby items. The only baby item was distilled water and it was only $2.50. Most of the stuff we got was food so that we can eat at home during the week. On the list was also paper towels and some sunscreen.
Target: Needed some new shelves in the laundry room so Target had some great looking RE wire storage for $39.99. Wife found a couple of shirts and we ended up spending around $60 there.
Home Depot: Wife's car needed a new garage door opener and I needed some paint to finish up some projects at home. For this purchase, I actually had a gift card but I left it at home! I walked out of there spending $50 on those items.
Macy's: Wife wanted to get some new shirts so we stopped at Macy's. She got 3 tops and she spent $0. Remember all the gift cards we had save up? She was carrying the $10 dollar gift cards but only spent around $30. She still had one card for $10 when we left.
Red Robin: Friends came over Saturday night to drink and hang out but we had no food at home so we ordered take out from Red Robin. Since I invited them over, I picked up the bill and a couple of beers at the bar while waiting for food. In total I spent $80 including tip.
There you have it, almost $400 dollars spent on nothing or at least it feels like nothing on Monday morning. I swear we need on average around $500 for weekends and $100 during the week to live confortably. Another $20,000 per year would be nice but I need to remember that our paycheck are actually going to go down this summer.
As far as baby stuff goes, I still have the grandparents buying the baby formula and diapers. They want to help out and the nice perk is they also bring the baby new clothes. They love to spoil her and I'm not going to complain- I like it! I will let them continue to do that for as long as they want.
How do you NOT spend money?!
UPDATE! Forgot to add Sunday. We also went to the movies on Sunday morning and spent $30 there. After movies I had to pick up some wine for the family and spent another $25.
