Money I Spent:  $26 for Sabrina’s birthday presents. Still have 1 or 2 things to get, but not a whole lot.

Money Victory ($ I avoided spending):  At one point had about $100 worth of stuff in my Amazon cart (for birthday) but talked myself out of most of it and just kept the best things, and things i knew would get here in time. Also had a free bagel at work for breakfast. 🙂

Use It Up Challenge:  Leftovers for lunch and dinner last night.

Thoughts:  Because of how busy the weekend of Feb 2 is going to be, we are having a sleepover for Sabrina’s birthday this weekend (Friday night), and going to Dave & Busters on Saturday. That will be pretty expensive, and not something we would normally do during Fiscal Fast, but since I’m having surgery Feb 7, we can’t really do it after her birthday.  The weekend of Feb 2, she has dress rehearsal Friday night 4-5:30, parent performance at 5:30, then we figured we could do presents and cake after that. Feb 3 is cheer competition from like 8:00 – 1:00 or whenever. Sunday Feb 4 we are going to St. James Tearoom.


  1. Money I Spent: $38 for gas in the truck.

    Money Victory ($ I avoided spending): Remembered to buy my gas on base today, so saved several cents per gallon.

    Use It Up Challenge: Still packing those leftover, low-carb lunches. God I want a pizza.

    Thoughts: Looking at my growing bank accounts makes it all worthwhile!


  2. Money I Spent; so far (only 9:00am) I have spent $19.95 at Amazon for Sabrina’s birthday present. It is a little charm bracelet from Stranger Things. Hope she likes it!!

    Money Victory ($ I avoided spending): Those subway sandwiches are still calling to me, but not tonight!

    Use It Up Challenge: still good here, we have 3 nice jar salads in the refrigerator, onion soup, corn chowder, posole, etc. for lunch. Don’t know what we will do for supper but probably salad and crab balls.

    Thoughts: Have a few tax things in the mail, hope we don’t owe too much but probably between 3000 and 4000. Hopefully not more than that!!!!!!
