Saturday Shopping and Challenge Updates
I've spent 50% of my non-household food expense for the month; a tank of gas for each car, and $4 for Turtle Bug and Tar Spray (excellent at removing both) to detail Mr. Goats car for Valentine's Day. (His present was having his oil changed, inspection sticker updated, and a detailing by me.)
I've also done the two oil changes, two inspection stickers, and the rear brake pads for my car that were the motivation for cutting the budget this month.
My toy budget spending remains over by 49%. Luckily for me, Infiniti is running a special where you get $20 off every $100 you spend on maintenance, so my brake pads did not cost as much as estimated, and I did not have to dip into savings even a little to pay for it. So far the no-spend challenge is a success - we'll see if I can make it work all the way to the end of the month.
On the Shape Up for March challenge, I have been moderately sucessful. I missed Judo on Thursday tring to save a calf, but aside from that I am 100% in both Judo and gym. That puts me at 3/8 for Judo and 11/17 for gym.
On a completely unrelated note, halfdozendaily has some cute napkins up for sale on her website, and she is giving a set of four away free. Head on over there and give her some comment love to be eligible to win.
