I went to Target and spent $29.80 over the weekend. $28.32 of that was on a bag of dog food. $1.48 was on shampoo. I also used a coupon I had for a free container of yogurt!
Then it was off to get gas. I spent $53.70 to fill my tank and get a car wash (which was about $2.50). Gas is $3.02 a gallon here.
Almost $85 spent on essentials. How I yearn for a post where I say, "I spent $85 one some fun impulse item for myself!!!" But of course I am now brainwashed and even if I had $85 laying around I don't think I could bring myself to spend it frivolously anymore. Could you?
