I figures I might as well be realistic and as much as I want to be on a complete spending freeze with only money coming in. That is not going to happen. I still need to pay the bills as they come in, feed the children, get to work and eat. So I am allowing for the minimum spending.
Here is what is allowed
Gas for the car
Lunch meat and Bread
And Shipping for items that have already been paid for by co-op but are expected to be here this week.
Yesterday no money was spent. So far so good.
I have allowed $10 per week for Mike as he is not quite ready to go cold Turkey.
Next up getting Microsoft money up and running to track our spending and savings better.
