the money diet

Week 15

Alright so I wasn’t and haven’t been able to get to the credit union to withdraw money BUT finally I was able to.

I think this will aid me in staying under budget.


I woke up monday and headed to work for 730am, I worked until 330.

I had to buy a bottle of water because I left my water bottle in my sisters car, that cost $2.10.

I had to buy lunch because I didn’t give myself enough time to make myself a lunch. That cost me $7.50.

Finally I walked to the credit union to withdraw money and realized as I got there that they were closed for Remembrance Day. I walked back and stopped at the Dollar Tree to look for stocking stuffers but only ended up buying cookie mix which cost $2.50.

When I got home I wasn’t feeling too well so we watched some tv, Jordan made dinner and we went to bed.

Jordan also gave me $35 for half of the cats food which was really nice!


I woke up around 7:45am and made a list that was to be completed in no particular order on Tuesday and Wednesday:

  • Do Groceries
  • Return gift
  • Play some Guitar with my friend from work
  • Make bed
  • Put dishes away
  • Tidy Dining room
  • Wipe Windows
  • Make/eat breakfast
  • Write out dinner board
  • Hangout with Zack
  • Start new blog post
  • Go to Credit Union to withdraw money
  • Take pics of Reciepts
  • Do some laundry
  • Clean cats litter

I successfully made the bed, wiped the windows, had breakfast, and cleaned the litter before heading to the grocery store.

I bought groceries which cost me $37.50. I went to the mall and returned the gift which gave me $15.80 back.

After that I grabbed a quick bite to eat at A&W which cost $11.85.

I hopped on the bus home and put the groceries away.

My friend from work picked me up and we hung out and jammed on the guitars for about 2.5 hours.

When I got home Jordan and I decided on dinner and turned on some Lucifer.

I signed up for Disney+ and I’m so glad I did. Jord and I spent the rest of the night watching Suit Life of Zack and Cody.


Wednesday I woke up and got ready to meet a friend at the mall. We met at Starbucks and sat waiting for the mall to open.

When the mall opened up we stopped by as many stores as we could in the span of about 3 hours. I got some awesome deals on gifts. The total cost of the mall trip was only $34.65.

After a good morning at the mall Zack and I went our separate ways. I headed over to Freeman’s Wine making shop and started some wine for Jordan and I, it cost $134.99 divided by 2.

After I walked to a different store and where I bought a gift for $10.95

I then went back to the mall to wait around for the bus.

As soon as I got home my mom had returned my call about a SWEET deal on a gift for someone so she picked me up to make sure that she wasn’t going to buy the same ones.

After that she dropped me off downtown. I walked around for a bit and then caught a bus home from the station.

After getting home I then went back out to Shoppers where I was able to do a 20x the points event and get some gifts for Christmas. I spent $105.50.

I came home and chilled for the remainder of the night.


I worked at 11am so I was able to do a few chores before work.

It was a pretty standard day, I spent money on food and coffees, total was $10.80.

After work I came home and did a bit of laundry before heading to bed.


Friday I worked a later shift so I was able to get a lot done during the day. I tidied up and played some guitar, which I am really improving on! Hopefully I’ll be able to post and share my improvements soon!

I went to work for 5pm and did my supervisor training. It was a good night, I did virtually everything without too much help.

After work my coworker Erin drove me over to the house to get changed and pickup Jordan. We went out with some people from work for some apps and drinks!

It was a great night, a little too great for some ahaha! but all in all I think everyone had a good time! I hope we get to do it again!

Nancy was nice enough to drive Jord and I home and then I threw on some Smart Guy and went to bed.


Soooooo… I had a couple drinks last night. I had to work a 9-5 today and safe to say it was a little rough. BUT nothing a good coffee can’t fix!

I spent $15.30 on food and coffee to get myself though the day. I was alright but I was definitely excited to get home.

When I got home I just chilled out for awhile before going to sleep.


I woke up to work at 7am. I worked until 12pm and headed home to meet Jordan. We got ready and walked towards downtown where we caught a bus to The Dugout.

The store I work at was having the Christmas party there. The food was absolutely delicious and the party was a pretty good time!

After the party Jordan and I walked towards downtown to watch the Santa Claus Parade.

The Parade was alright. There were lots of floats, I was impressed for a smaller city.

After the parade ended we walked home and went to bed.


I apologize greatly for the thin post this week. I had a nice post all typed up, I had thought I saved the draft and when I went to post it on Monday, everything after Tuesday had disappeared. Hope you still enjoyed the read. Thank you for continuing to come back weekly!
