Today, I spent $1.30 on a cup of coffee. But it was very good. I would have had a caffeine headache otherwise. So I went out to eat with friends. $4.01 on a small chef's salad. That's the only time I'm eating out this month.
Afterward, $.65 on an icecream cone at McDonald's. I'll have to let everyone know I can't eat this way all the time! I've spent $5.96 of my food budget on the first day alone.
I am eating food I already have at home. In some ways that's cheating, but I will probably buy more than I can eat at the end of next July--so it evens out.
Tomorrow, I will only drink the coffee.
