Daily Spending- week 3

Yesterday concludes my third week of implementing some new spending habits. I have been pretty strict this week. Calculating how much debt I owe on Monday (see this post) definitely helped me get more focused on trying to control my expenses. In total I have saved an estimated $496 over the past three weeks.

Looking back

After reviewing my finances a few weeks back I realized how much money I was spending every day on small purchases that didn’t really add anything to my quality of life.

I decided three weeks ago that I would try to make some changes to my daily spending.

Proposed changes

I decided on four changes to make

  1. Quit smoking and start vaping
  2. Stop drinking energy drinks and make my own coffee
  3. Start bringing my lunch to work by utilizing meal prepping
  4. Eat dinner at home instead of picking up food on the way home or eating out.

I have not been perfect but I am proud to say that the past three weeks I still managed to save an estimated $496.
