The Weekend

November 17th, 2008 at 06:09 pm

... was very spendy. Basketball Boy and I spent about $225 @ Costco. We have a food budget of $250/mo so we have $25 left. Granted, we haven't been shopping in about three weeks so the Costco run should def last us through the month.

I've never really tried any frugal hacks before and I'm not sure if this is frugal or just evil. I went to American Eagle a week ago and spent about $300 with a 40% off coupon. I ended up taking about $100 worth of the clothes back but said I didn't have my receipt so I got store credit for the amount without the 40% off so I got $200 back for only spending $100! That was pretty freaking sweet. I also spent $45 @ Victoria's Secret for two pairs of these super comfy sweat pants that I just LOVE!

I'm not going to lie though, my credit card is now over $800. I have faithfully paid off my balance in full every month for about a year now and I don't think I will be able to this month. I guess I could but I don't want to pull from my $4,000 EF because I feel so much more secure with that money there.

    Umm...hate to say this, but what you did at AE was illegal. There was a case of a woman who did something similar and she was arrested and charged on grand theft/defraud or something like that. She made over $10k, but ended up with several years in jail.
