I’m hoping to get my passport renewed this month, which I’ll put into ‘personal care’. Keeping transportation a little higher to encourage me to get out more!

Aside from that, nothing too outlandish.

Whats on the financial plan for this month?

  1. My big financial goal is to buy my lunch less. It’s tricky because when I’m on a job site, I usually can’t bring food in since it’s a construction site or a really dirty building… I think I will be trying to leave a packed lunch in my car. We’ll see how it goes! Good luck with your budget this month!

    • That is a great call actually. Lunch is hard when you are on the move all the time. Maybe have a bunch of non-fridge required foods? I found honestly bringing my lunch every day was one of the first things I started to do to save money and it was hard, but after a few weeks you get in the groove. Good luck!

      • I’ve started by leaving peanuts/cashews and fruit bars in my car this week. They won’t go mushy in the cold like fruits or veg would, and they’re easy to snack on while I drive from site to site. Baby steps!
