Days 28 and 29 boom! Gone just like that!
I started off the days with $62.
I remember stating that Wednesday was going to be a low key night for me with the Shocker game but I was too tempted to go out for the game by friends who want me to fail Project Minimum Wage. Ended up going out and only had a couple beers but I did not eat out. I made sure to eat dinner at home before going out. Probably something I wouldn’t have done otherwise.
Thursday was the haircut I was supposed to postpone until next week. Figured since I had some money, I might as well get the haircut over with. Stopped by the grocery store on the way home to pick up some items here and there for dinner.
Final damage? It wasn’t too bad. I’m now sitting here with $22 in hand. That’s crazy cause 22 just happens to be my lucky number as well.
So here we are on the final day of Project Minimum Wage. I do have a birthday party to go to tonight but I’m thinking I’ll be able to manage it all. Unfortunately I’m betting I won’t have much money left over.
On the bright side, I did bring my lunch again to work. Its spaghetti cooked inside of bread dough. Pretty interesting concept. It’s very cheap to make to. Spaghetti, ground beef, spaghetti sauce and frozen dough all flattened out and then you wrap it around the spaghetti. Plus there was a nice little sale at Dillon’s. If you look online, there are sites like dealdetectingdiva.com that show you what coupons to use at what stores to maximize savings. It’s great! They do all the work for you.
One more day left all. I’ll post the final day write up this weekend and then next week will be my final thoughts.
