Dairy Queen – $15.17
Home Depot – $78 (paint, painting supplies, light bulbs)
I’m trying to think I really should have just called this a “low-spend” month. I’m really trying hard not to spend on things that aren’t a true NEED but I’m having trouble balancing being frugal, being practical and having fun. *sigh* Like the paint…I didn’t *need* it now but timing-wise, I’m ready to repaint the ugly gray-green walls in our breakfast nook and kitchen. They are seriously depressing me and making the whole great room (which is essentially most of the house) ugly. First-world problems, right? In my defense, I have been spending my furniture sales money and not family funds on these indiscretions.
