I think this will be the last Credit Card Bill post. It’s just too boring which is great our wallet, but it doesn’t make for an interesting post.
In May, we had the smallest bill for as long as I can remember. I was getting the hang of being a stay at home dad and not spending any money. I can get use to it. 🙂
Credit Card Bill
Pet – $4? I must have had some credit or something. What could I even get from the pet store for $4?
USPS – $13. Shipping
Amazon – $27. Just diapers.
Home Depot – $14. We got some potting soil and a Spanish lavender. It’s doing really great by the way.
Target – $104. A high chair, a slim tower fan, and a paring knife.
Total – $162. That’s even less than the April Bill.
The high chair is quite nice. It can recline so it’s good for infant as well. When I’m home alone with baby, I can put him in the high chair and have a quick lunch. Previously, I put him on the play mat and then bring my lunch over to eat nearby.
Gas – $36. We went to Costco to fill up in May so I had to put it on the debit card.
We give ourselves
$100 $50 cash allowance each every week to spend on discretionary items: groceries, shoes, shows, dinners out, and whatever else we want. We decreased our cash allowance by 50% while I’m taking time off.
When we went to get cash yesterday, I accidentally withdrew $300 instead of $200 (for two weeks.) It’s one of those ATM that has a preset amount and my finger just unconsciously flew to $300 button. At least we didn’t have to any ATM fee here. I think this is a symptom of frugal fatigue! I’ll write a bit more about this next time. Meanwhile, we put $100 in the “bank” envelope and will withdraw only $100 next time.
How about you? Did you spend money on anything fun last month?
