Woah, where have I been the last few days?

I had a latte at Starbucks on Tues, spent nothing on Wed, but bought this GORGEOUS red french jacket from H&M yesterday. I've been pining for one since I saw it 3 yrs ago. Definitely way over budget there. I'm going out tonight, so let's hope I keep my costs low because I'm already over budget for the month!

Starbucks: 1/5
Eating out for lunch: 0/5

$40-9.98= $31.02 saved!

16. $48.82- The Body Shop
17. $0
18. $0
$40-48.82= $8.82 over!

19. $0
20. $40.32-dinner and a bag
21. $0
$31.18-40.32= $9.14 over!

22. $11-Michaels

24.$0
$30.86-11= $19.86 saved!

25. $3.52-Starbucks vanilla latte

I am in for October. I procrastinated too much this month to join so I am gearing up for next month. I have a vacay to pay for and we are thinking about building a house in the next couple of years so I need to start hoarding money lol

9/4 - Co-Op day, I bought myself lunch (ran out of time that morning to pack it, I had packed the kids lunches the night before, poor planning on my part)
9/5 - Lunch out with husband, Target, Car Repair, Used Book Store, Groceries
9/6 - $0
9/7 - $0
9/8 - Target & Lunch Out (I am seeing a pattern here!), Groceries
9/9 - $0
9/10 - $0
9/11 - Lunch
9/12 - $0
9/13 - Lunch & Target
9/14 - Lunch
9/15 - Dinner

I used to be fairly active on these No Buy threads, but I kinda disappeared. I am debating rejoining in October. My September spending was a HOT MESS!
