In case you were wondering, I spent a grand total of $519.84 last month during my spending freeze. I gave a mid-month update that you can read here, to see what I spent money on. I did achieve my goal of saving $1500 for my grandkids to take three vacations next year.
Here is the list if the rest of the money I spent.
$22.00 on dinner for me and my husband. Now do you see how frivolous that was? I could have easily cooked, but I just didn’t feel like it.
$51.00 on Thanksgiving dinner. I had a free turkey as well. The crowd was larger than expected and I did not have time to cook anymore turkey and dressing, so I bought it. This is why it is important to R.S.V.P. for events b the requested deadline. Had it not been for these last minute straggler’s whose other plans fell through I could have kept that money in my pocket.
$284.00 (downpayment) for a branding coach. This is vital to my business, as I am taking my business to another level in 2016. I know that I can’t do it alone and I have no problem investing in myself. Yes, I could have waited until the freeze was over, but something in my gut told me to act fast. It really wasn’t that fast, however, as I had been studying this person for about a year and I knew that she was the coach for me.
As you can see, you can meet any financial goal you set. Could I have done better? Of course I could have, I could have had $2000 for my grandchildren and it’s still not too late. I can still save more money directed to their vacation account. I am happy with my outcome. Thanks for joining me.
