Spending & Saving

The month of August has been pretty bleak in the saving department. For some reason, we just had SO many expenses. The problem (as I've said before) is not always the BIG expenses (like the carseat we had to buy for the little guy) it's the wasteful spending at places like Erik's Deli, Yogurtland, and Nordstrom.

In total I had six trips to Yogurtland (I told you, I'm an addict!!!), three trips to coffee shops, (one or both of us) ate out seven times when we could have eaten at home (when we eat out we go to sandwich-type places... at least they are a little less expensive :), and I bought two pieces of clothing for my trip to Vegas this weekend (one is a bandage dress from Bebe- it's sooooooo sexy!!!), plus a dress from Target and one scarf- just because I love scarves.....

So there you have it. You get to see this month's wasteful spending in a nut-shell. I think next month we'll have to do a little bit better....for our saving account's sake. :)

Honestly, sometimes I have to remind myself why I want a big savings account. My little baby doesn't care about what dress I bought from Bebe or whether my purse is this season's "it-bag."  Tony and I want to give our baby a really happy home, free of financial stress and worry....


Do you have a problem with wasteful spending???? Isn't it so hard to give up the little things.....some times those trips to Yogurtland or meeting a pal for coffee are the best part of my day...just sayin.
