Experiment #1 Catch Up

Posted by idawrites on February 6, 2008 in PF Experiment 1, Spending Log |

I’ve been sick recently and haven’t felt up to blogging much. I haven’t even read the blogs that I’m addicted to! I have gotten much reading done and have soothed myself quite well with herbal tea. So, now that I’m back out of my fuzzy slippers and back into my desk at work, it’s time for me to catch up with a few things.

First things first – the Spending Log.
Mark spent:
$20.21 on time out with The Boys
$22.77 on pizza for the kids since I was in bed sick

We both spent:
$290.44 on groceries and household items for the next couple of weeks
$5.71 for beer (SUPERBOWL!!!)

$1,087.00 House Payment
$1,151 Child Support

I spent:
$25.00 for medical copay (annual physical)
$33.62 for lunch*
* Yep, total extravagance. I had to fast for 12 hours prior to my physical… which means that I hadn’t eaten in 14 hours. Mark even fasted with me. The end result is that our favorite BBQ joint is down the street from the doctor and since we were starving, we totally splurged. YAY

I’ve been looking around the web to see if I can find a way to make this spending log easier. So far, I’ve stumbled across a free service at Joe’s Logbook. Google search turned up MVelopes, which isn’t a free service but, definitely has tons of features that make it something worth looking into. Go Debt Free has a printable spending tracker for hand written records.

I’ll have to give a few of them a try and see how it goes.
