Expenses and miles, oh my!

April 10th, 2012 at 04:18 pm

Today's spend: $24.38 on groceries. Mostly milk and produce.

I have been keeping track of how many miles I drive in a week, in a bid to reduce my overall miles. This past week was 428.8 at 37 mpg. Wow. No wonder I feel like I live my life in the car!! Granted, I had two round trips to my mom's (1 hour drive) for Easter weekend, but geesh. That is still a lot. That included all my regular trips to the babysitter, swim lessons, groceries, etc.

I'm planning to keep track for the next three weeks to get a handle on my average miles, and then come up with a plan to cut where I can.

On another note-- car note, that is-- the sitter was out of town yesterday, so I sent the $60 I would have spent on babysitting to the car loan. It's money I would have spent during a normal week, so I can rationalize that!

    I love taking the unused money out of categories and "reassigning it" to a place where it will make a difference! When I (rarely) have extra grocery money at the end of the month, it goes to savings or mortgage or IRA. Love that! I feel like I'm getting ahead!

    Oh, wow, that is a lot for one week. Now I know that when you're not blogging, you're probably driving!
