So as Christmas came and went I completely forgot about my budget. I didn't go over, I just completely failed at inputting all the numbers. Then Christmas Eve I got paid again, and was totally unprepared and didn't even have a budget ready. Oops. However, I get paid again this Friday so I will once again try valiantly to keep up with my budget. I guess my issue is that I'm doing pretty well money-wise so it's easy to forget about keeping track of things. But it's a new week and even a new year so here's to keeping better track of my money!
And now for the Weekly Money Check-Up

1. The most I've spent this last week was on stuff at Target to organize our bedroom. We are trying desperately to have a lovely, clean, organized house in 2011.
2. Today I feel optimistic towards money. We have a lot of saving to do in 2011 and I think we've got a good start on it.
3. Money can't buy happiness. One free/inexpensive thing I did last week that made me happy was have homemade beignets with my finace (heehee. I love saying fiance)
4. I will consider this week a success if I...join a gym.
