Spending Report: April 15 – 21, 2012

April 15: $30 Starbucks card reload, $27.96 brunch

April 16: no spend day!

April 17: no spend day!

April 18: $41.98 nail polish & strengthener, $57.70 Dress911, $25.72 Shoppers Drug Mart, $44.63 The Bay, $76.65 refunded from MAC

April 19: $8.07 lunch

April 20: $4.19 lunch, $8.53 Starbucks (on loaded sbux card so not included in my total)

April 21: $32.99 Groceries

Grand total: $196.59

I know, I know. April is supposed to be a clothes shopping ban, and there’s a charge from Dress911 there. It’s for a dress that I’ve been waiting for that came back in stock this week, and I was afraid I’d lose it. I’ve also started yet another quest for the perfect foundation and this could get expensive. I had some momentsoff weakness this week while I was in the mall, but I managed to walk away from the cute tops & pretty cardigan. Phew!

How was your week? Any suggestions for a foundation with magical mattifying properties (sold in Canada)?

  1. I’ve been having the hardest time with keeping my spending under control with all of the cute clothes that are out there lately!

    • I know right! May is a three paycheque month for me, and I’ve really been trying to not spend that extra paycheque before I get it, but it’s hard! I feel like I have savings fatigue and I want to rebel.

  2. These kinds of spending reports make me glad to be a guy :)
    I can’t say I’m dying to buy the latest fashions and definitely don’t spend anything on things like makeup.

    • What I wouldn’t give to not have to wear makeup (and yes I realize I can go without, I just prefer not to do that because I look like the walking dead without mascara and blush)!

      • I’m sure that’s not true. Us guys appreciate the effort that women put into looking good though. We’re just glad that we don’t have to go through all that.

  3. I just started budgeting. You have days specifically set aside to not spend, or does it just happen that way?

    • Nah, it just tends to happen that way. Some people plan out no-spend days, but I forget about things I need to buy way too often to do that. Most of the time I’ll just realize that I haven’t spent anything and it’s been a no-spend day. Good luck with your budget!

    For what it’s worth, I believe brunch is a deep investment in personal weekend happiness.

    I gave myself a $30 Starbucks budget at the beginning of this month and then went over that 2 x $5.32 this weekend… sigh. Guess I’m really done! And Jeremy’s comment is both hilarious and smart. It really does pay to be a guy!
