Today, on Day 27, I went over budget. That’s right, I crossed the $500 mark in spending for the month at Trader Joe’s this morning.
I could have stayed under budget. But that would have eliminated some donation and stock-up items, and I’d rather spend a little extra while paying as little for them as possible.
Right now, I’m just over budget, but I will probably spend a little more before the month is over – I haven’t been to the Farmer’s Market or Whole Foods yet this week!
I want to gather my thoughts over the next week or so, and then I’ll share my final impressions about this cash experiment with you.
