Cruised into second half of July very satisfied with spending, or precisely how little spending was actually being done.
That changed in one week. In one week I spent $48 on a soccer uniform (still far less that what I spent for Club Soccer), $28 on uniform shorts for high schooler (the only clothing item I needed to buy for BTS! thanks to old uniform still fitting 8th grader, and uniform exchange for high schooler), $10 at used book store for summer reading books, $44 for Panda Express (younger daughter was home for this week from summer camp job).
Younger son was invited on an last-minute road trip from the Midwest to CA (he is flying home with me on 7/30). He cost me $60 for new flip flops, sun glasses, ear buds, water bottle, some snacks and $20 spending money. He and my stepdad left this morning and have already hit the Arch in St. Louis.
I also stocked up on snacks for younger daughter returning to camp for three weeks ($15).
The only good news is that most of the spending is done for BTS and trips, etc. Grocery spending will be minimal since everyone is away again, so back in the saddle starting tomorrow.
Hope UFMC is going well for other participants!
So much for UFMC!
