Week 19 : Long weekends

I know we have a lot of Canadian bloggers out there so Happy early Thanksgiving Canada! I hope you get to enjoy your family and friends. I am totally due for a visit to our family in Toronto

Also, yay to long weekends! Hopefully you also get the day off on Monday. I am heading to the East Coast to visit some friends for the long weekend over a short period of time. I wish we had a pod that can just zap us to places whenever we feel like it. One day...

Current Debts:

No Paycheck this week, but here are the ups/downs of the debt progress. I am so glad that I have 3 pay periods this month. There are 6 more pay periods left for 2014 - hopefully I can tackle as much as I can by the end of the year!

Personal Loan
Student Loan
Credit Card
Car Insurance

Starting Debt: $19,648  || Paid/Interest: $62.32 || Ending Debt:*$19,710

Weekly Spending: 

I got to do two no spend days this week... so hopefully this will continue this month. The $200 challenge seemed to go well even though there were unexpected expenses (expensive dinners) this week. I managed to leave around $10 from the budget. I am not too sure if I am going to do this again next week, but we'll see =) 
Sat - $10 Drinks  | $23 Groceries
Sun - No Spend Day!
Mon - $24 Commute
Tue - $16 Dinner | $10 Drinks
Wed - No Spend Day!
Thu - $15 Gas | $11 Lunch | $75 Dinner
Fri - $5 Drinks

Weekly Spending Start $200 || End $189

Pending Expenses: 

I keep forgetting putting something here - so new strategy. I will start purchasing Christmas presents for everyone. I will also start to tally them down here. I will write a separate post because I have to think about who I am giving a present to this year

Current $50 | Goal $500 $450 more to go
