Welcome to this week’s Spending Log! This is my explanation of all the money I spent in the last week. The week number aligns with the week in the year. My hope with the spending logs is that over time I can become increasingly more intentional with my spending.

On Monday night, I babysat 4 kiddos for 4 hours and made $55. The parents were more generous than my usual babysitting fees. I’m really glad they could enjoy Rogue One, and I could enjoy some kid time. The extra money is nice too.
On Tuesday, I won a gift card at work that I used toward some groceries that I had to buy from Amazon for the house (which comes out of different money).
For Christmas, I got Laura a LulaRoe subscription over three months. She loves how soft they are and I’m glad I can introduce them to her.
At the end of the week, I competed at Friday Night Lights at Redpoint Crossfit in Fayetteville, NC (videos here). It was only $10 to compete and it was local. In my opinion, it was a better way to spend $10 and a Friday night than some shitty bar. I placed second and rewarded myself and Casey with Taco Bell.
I was planning to go to Nashville this week, so I picked up some pre-packaged protein packets to take with me. Unfortunately, that trip got cancelled because of the bad weather. I will still be submitting for reimbursement for this when I submit as I will just take this protein with me.
