Midmonth update

Since we are halfway through the month, I thought I'd look to see how we are doing with "limiting the amount of money we spend" and saving/paying off debt.

The good news is that we have only spent spent $194.35 of our allotted $400, so we are under half! The bad news is that we have only had 4 no spend days all month! FOUR! That's like a quarter! We should be doing better than that!

I transferred $100 into our car fund today which will bring that up to $300+interest. Hopefully I'll be able to add another $100 by the end of the month. I also have made our normal payments on both hubby and my student loans. Hubby gets a paycheck today which will go towards his, along with some extra money he has made on the side.

On a personal note, I have totally slacked at going to the gym! I was going 2x/week for a little while, but last week I didn't go at all! Now, halfway through the month I have been their two times. This week doesn't look to promising and next week is Christmas...I'd like to go at least two more times before the end of the month.
