zen habits: One Month Challenge, Day 4

One Month Challenge, Day 4

This month, Zen Habits is taking up the One Month Challenge and I will be tracking all of my expenses and logging them throughout the month of February.

Day 4 of my One Month Challenge has passed (I'm on Guam, which is ahead of most time zones). Here's how it turned out:

  • Item: Candy for kids; Cost: $14.25; Essential: No
  • Item: Movie; Cost: $21; Essential: No
  • Item: Movie snacks; Cost: $12; Essential: No
  • Item: McDonald's; Cost: $24; Essential: No
OK, this wasn't the best day for us in terms of spending. It was family day, and part of our family day plan for this weekend was to go to a movie and then have a sunset dinner at the beach. We also played soccer out in our yard in the morning. Well, we had a great day, but the movie and snacks were expensive, and we didn't pack a dinner ahead of time, so we bought McDonald's and headed for the beach.

Running total after 4 days is $148.77 ($41.73 essential - 28%).
