Weekly Spending/Saving

So, I've tried various ways to track my discretionary spending and announce it to the world without much success. Then I came across this site called Give Me Back My Five Bucks and really liked the way she does her weekly tallies. So guess what? I'm hopping on board.

Monday
$ No Spend Day!

Tuesday
$ No Spend Day

Wednesday
$40.00 gas for Brutus
$8.xx McDonalds (me and Sonny Boy did the 59 cent cheeseburgers and a large fry)
$1600.xx bi weekly pay with bonus. $600 should go towards the no touch savings based on my new budget plan, however, it can't as I need to finish the insurance payment this month.

Thursday
$200 - Hair (yikes! But it looked great!)
$45.00 gas for my truck

Friday
$25.xx Publix
$47.xx GFS
$80.xx Publix
$140.38 weekly pay

Saturday
$ No Spend Day!

Sunday
$ No Spend Day!

Notes/comments: It's Labor Day on Monday so I had to shop for the 3 day weekend and festivities. Check out the amount of food I figured we prepared and was consumed in 3 days. Wow. I can't even put an estimate as to how many people we fed. It was just all day Saturday (cleared out by 10pm thankfully), 6 hours on Sunday and another 8 hours on Monday. I had hoped to not spend a whole lot of money for the weekend, intending to simply raid the pantry and freezer, which I did, but still, 4 18 packs of beer really added up!
Also, I didn't do a grand tally as I dont' have all my receipts in front of me to add up...AND well, ho hum, I'm too lazy at the moment!!
