We're about 1/4 of the way thru July and my wife and I have done a good job thus far in keeping our expenses down. Our goal is for July to be our lightest expense month yet. That shouldn't be too hard since we've spent an average of $7,110/month in the last four months. I'm hoping we can keep our July expenses in the vicinity of $6,500.
My wife and I are treating ourselves to a dinner date tonight, but to keep true to our goal, we're taking advantage of a buy one, get one free coupon at an Italian restaurant in our neighborhood that we haven't been to. We ordinarily spilt a meal when we go out, since the servings sizes in restaurants are usually huge. So, with a buy one, get one free deal, we’ll have a nice meal tonight and leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
Got to love a deal.
