May 14th Spending

After my post yesterday y'all know that it was huge spending day over here. Aside from paying for the water heater it was a no spend day though :-)

Since I had to stay home with the repair guys, I didn't get into work until11 yesterday...3.5 hours later than I typically do! To make up some of the time I stayed until 5, and time flew!

Hubby had a pizza party at school yesterday and brought the leftovers home. So we skipped the gym because I got home late and ate pizza. We also watched the first two episodes of Heroes since I borrowed them from a friend at work.

I am hoping to get some time this weekend to work on our budget. I think we got a little to debt happy and didn't realistically look at our numbers. Our budget is created by combining both our paychecks and I just assumed that all I was paying was covered by my paycheck, not thinking that I do deposit some of hubby's money into my account. Basically, I realize that I will be a couple hundred short at the end of each month we deposit all of hubby's paycheck moneys on debt. Oops!

Lesson learned...when budgeting allot money from each paycheck to an assigned category to make sure everything is covered! Even if the over all budget looks fine, this should still be done to ensure you're not pushing the limit of your bank account!

Hey thanks for the tip about buying a bigger tub of yougart and putting it in small containers. Great idea! I love love love yougart. I think I could eat it with every meal.
One thing that is a great yougart treat is to put some in a big bowl add some granola and fresh fruit, pop it in the freezer for 10-15 min. and then go sit outside in the heat and enjoy. It is simply divine!
