May Spending

I will try to keep track of my budget better this month I must stop shopping randomly by doing a few things.
  1. Cash only (Debit Card only to pull out the weekly spending allowance)
  2. Change Bucket that I will count at the end of the month that will go into the bank & the end of the month so I can start saving $$
  3. Must use what is in the house until then except for Milk/Bread/Fresh Fruits & Veggies/Household products budgeting no more then $60.00
Wishing me Luck!!!!
