If we are being honest here....I also went to a movie and got dinner afterwards.
And I bought .54 cents worth of tortillas in the clearance section at Dillons. They had to be sold that day and I found change in my car to buy them...but what was I doing at Dillons in the first place if I wasn't supposed to spend money?!?!
In lieu of such failures I think I should extend the challenge to November...with some tweaks. Starting November I will allow myself one purchased meal a week. And some groceries....what's reasonable? 30$ for the month? 10$?
