NSD finally, everything breaking!

January 13th, 2015 at 06:48 am

Yesterday was a no spend day. Finally! I can't remember the last time I had one of those. I practically tap-danced at bedtime.

The new $400/week budget, groceries and eating at home are going well. We have $155 left until Friday. But, I fear trouble ahead. Hubby is going out to the movie tavern with a friend tonight (it's a theater with beer and dinner service), and that is no cheap date once the beer, food, and movie tickets are calculated, and I know hubs is going to want to pay the full tab for the two of them.

And, I have a breakfast meeting tomorrow for a community service project, so that will set me back. Plus, we will need to buy milk and fill-in groceries later this week.

I also realized I'm not imagining the never-ending to do list. Last week, the toilet broke, so I had to go buy a part and fix it. (luckily an easy fix).

This week a man flagged me down to tell me one of my car headlights was out. Gah! Luckily, the last time I changed one, I bought a two pack of bulbs, so I just happened to have one in the garage. No money spent. Phew.

But still! That is the thing about owning homes and cars. It's always something. Work work work to be done!

    Yes we had something go wrong yesterday, a stone stuck in a brake pad - these things happen. Hoping you have a break from stuff breaking/requiring repairs Smile

    No break in the breaking yet! The wireless router broke today, so that was $50 to replace, and hubby lost his new earbuds, so he spent $16 on new ones.

    That's a lot of earbuds to lose in a few weeks. Hope Murphy goes away for you guys.
