Report: 1/7/19

Money I Spent:  $31.82 at Chipotle; $128.3 for Sabrina’a yoga classes (set of 10). I was going to wait and do this for her birthday, but she’s really into it right now, so I figured I should just do it now (saves a couple of bucks per class to get it in a block of 10).

Money I Avoided Spending: Accidentally ordered a backpack on Amazon. Had meant to put it in my cart, so I could go back later and compare it with another one I was looking at. But I guess I clicked “Buy with 1-Click” instead. Didn’t realize it for a couple of hours, but once I realized it, I contacted the seller and asked them to cancel my order, which they did. I will likely buy the same backpack in Feb or March, but I want to at least do it on purpose, after looking at a few! 

Extra Money I Found or Made:  eBay: two small items sold on auction for cheap (trying to get rid of old inventory), so total on each was $8.50 or so. 

Use It Up Challenge:  Leftovers for lunch; that’s about it.

Thoughts:  COFFEE SAVINGS: We used to brew K-cups, at approx $0.50/pod (cheapest was around $0.46 if I recall correctly). Now we just make regular coffee in a regular cheapo Mr. Coffee coffeepot, using Costco ground coffee for the most part, for a cost of $0.03 per 6 oz cup. Considering the household consumes a good 6 cups of coffee per day or more, the savings for the year will be in the hundreds of dollars!
