If my boyfriend had brought his lunch, it would be zero, but I took him to eat since he was hungover and wanted greasey food.

I bought gas for my car, which was 49 dollars. I drive a mini, so that will last me about two weeks.

I almost did a detour to BK for French Toast Sticks, but I thought better of it--I'm buying lunch today, so my $0 is soon to be $5 ($5 foot loooooooooooong--I eat it over two days to save money).

I do most all of my spending between Friday and Sunday. I try and look at stuff online or hit the library during the week, but I have a late class tonight, so I figure I'll end up buying a snack.

i've slowly learned to reduce what i spend most days now. i get an iced green tea ($2.60) and perhaps i'll go back and get my iced coffee after 2pm for $2.00 but that's basically all i'm spending these days.

£1100/$2200... I bought a car. Actually it was a little bit more if you factor in insurance, petrol, etc. But yeah ALOT and I wont be spending a dime from now on if I can help it!

$37 -- but I put $11 in gas in my corolla, and $15 in my pathfinder. $6.99 for grilled chicken at the grill next door because I forgot to bring chicken to cook at work for my salad. And my husband said he spent $5 at chickfilet (however spelled. I never go there). Pretty inexpensive day, minus the gasoline. Good idea to keep a tally, I never thought of that! Thanks.
