I am feeling more confident this week with my weekly spending. After re-evaluating my goals - I felt so much better adjusting the amount rather than failing another week. I realized that I have a long way to go on changing my spending lifestyle. I might need to tackle them one by one instead of taking them on all together. The main focus/priority is to pay off my debt - but I wouldn't mind picking up a tip or two on how to better curb my spending.
Its payday week so I was able to get a huge chunk out of the debt. I will only be able to cover the minimum for my debts next payday since I will be traveling.
Week 2 Starting Debt $23,722 || Paid $600 || Ending Debt* $23,122
I wasn't being too realistic with the goal of $100 (see post) - so this week was adjusted to $150
Sat - $15 Gas | $17.50 DrinksWeekly Spending Start $150 || End $134.50 || Roll over $15.50

Another $50 was put into my Google Wallet account. I will be spending this amount next weekend. Good thing its already covered! I also revised the amount for the trip - this is going to be a wedding, so I am pretty sure there will be some things that needs to be covered.
