Weekend Spending: Sept. 18th-20th

Both Friday and Sunday were no spend days!!! Woohooo!!!

Saturday was an expensive one...

Gas for hubby... $40.66
Gas for me... $41.12
Groceries (2 stores)...$56

Total... $168.78

We may have only spent on one day, but it was a big day! We were able to pick up a new water pitcher, and it is so refreshing to have nice cold water to drink! We got one of the big units, so we don't have to keep refilling every couple of glasses. We went a little bit of over our grocery budget, but it's a first time in a long time, and we also bought tahini, which is expensive, but we can now make our own hummus, so hopefully it'll save us over time.

I also started going through some things, and I found over $100 in gift cards! I'm so bad with them, and forget to use them, so now I'll have to plan out how to use them. They are AMEX, and a lot of places around here don't take AMEX. Don't ask me why, but they don't.

I'm starting off the week with lack of sleep, but I'm still being hopefully that I'll go for a run after work. I went for one on Friday, to the gym on Saturday, and chased after preteens for most of Sunday, so I won't feel too bad if I take a rest day.
