Saturday Night & I Ain't Got No Money

August 26th, 2006 at 03:32 pm

Well at least that's what I'll happily be singing tonight anyways.

On Saturday mornings I make my bank run depositing anything leftover from my Allowance Money for the week. So in that pot there is 1.39! Inotherwords, I stayed under Spending/Allowance budget by 1.39 this week. YEAH ME!!

Next week's allowance is paid out by the banker (me) from money I got out in cash on the 1st of the month. Monday mornings I'll be starting fresh with 5.00 in my pocket to last the week for 'blow' money. $2.50 or less of that will likely go somewhere at a place where I'll unwrap my food in the drivethru for my splurge lunch. Not always but most weeks I do treat myself to a takeout lunch. Woo-hoo, big spender!!

Not everyone would be happy with this scenario because they like to carry cash and they like to go out shopping on Saturday. Or they like to let alot of money slip away unaccounted for. I don't. Any of those things. Sunday's money is always for tithe and it's written out of checkbook and if we have PLANNED and BUDGETED to eat out on Sunday then the money is either available in cash or w/a debit card.

But today's Bank Run Deposit is 1.39! Meaning 1.39 is going today to ING to be put out at hard labor earning me some buckos!!


3.34 last week
1.39 +
4.73 MONTHLY BANK RUN $'s to date
(I'll have to check later and see what amounts went earlier in the month pre-blog)

    I can tell you are enjoying this!!

    Yes, Ima I am. I have done many many of these things on my own for years, so it's kind of fun to plot the thoughtlines that go with the actions. I think it will be fruitful as a I progress farther in making adjustments to have something to refer back to.
