A little smattering of spending-related choices, listed briefly, to keep my mind on the right path.
Saturday April 8 🙂
Bicycle ride along the river in spring sunshine. Meal planning in my head during the ride.
Sunday April 9 🙂
Meal prep for the week! Free museum entry; bicycle riding. Yep, there’s definitely a theme to the free entertainment and exercise this month! After all that boss frugality, split a $ pizza with a friend. Ha.
Monday April 10 🙂
Bicycle commute to and from work; packed my meals.
Tuesday April 11 :]
Bicycle ride and bike rack purchase – have sat on this spend for months, as it’s absolutely NOT necessary. It is already making a tremendous difference in the ability to pack all my supplies for the day, which will lead to more bicycle commuting and less driving.
Wednesday April 12 🙂
Packed my work meals.
Thursday April 13 🙂
Weekly group bicycle ride. Ate a packed meal beforehand. Spent $6 on a beverage. Passed on the free beer. My wallet and my body were happy.
Friday April 14 🙂
Worked late but still managed to eat packed food!
Lots of wins – I’m getting better at maintaining meal prep even during busy social weeks; I spent only the cash I’d allotted for my weekly Thursday outing; and I kept a stash of snacks at work for late nights to prevent vending machine temptation. The pizza was DIVINE.
Kiddo will be in town for a week, which is typically where my food spending goes sideways.
