Credit card bill was 35% of normal.
This did not include the *cough* $120 spending spree I had at Macy's in the final dwindling days of September when I was making superhero panties for a friend's daughter and the kids decided they needed new underwear as well. This turned into some superhero clothes and maybe a Minnie Mouse shirt...or two...and well, there you have it. We hadn't actually done back-to-school shopping this Fall at all yet. And after a fast, binge-eating is usually in order, no?
"Little boy wanted superhero underwear", [yeah, $120 worth of underwear, yeah...]to which hubby responded,
"Well that's important" [it is, isn't it?!]
Come to think of it, clothing is still not technically -quote-
bringing new sh** into this house - unquote.
$2.50 for the microphone cover +
$3 for the karaoke version of "Call me Maybe" [don't ask]
Hubby's total: $5.50
$20 for Philly Rock N Roll Half Marathon Visor +
$120 spending spree -
I made $147 at my Moms' Sale
My total: $49.
Ok, he wins. But this is still a SCORE!
This was a good exercise.
Now back to our regularly scheduled spending.
CHRISTMAS IS COMING FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!!
...Oh wait...what about the coffee...
Oh screw it, the dirty secret, and what I didn't put together when hubby suggested this whole idea, is that, as a finance
dork person, he does the 'projections' and 'analysis' of our finances over a year just like he does for his company. And he ties it all out--i.e., our fiscal year ends--in September. So he was trying to tidy up a little at the end of the year by cutting back on the credit card bill.
Well played, my friend, well played...
