Blew Threw my Monthly Entertainment Budget in Half the Month!

Ok, so today I went out and bought a couple items for my fiance for Valentines Day and got myself some lunch at Taco Bell. My fiance and I give ourselves an allowance of $100 a month to spend on whatever we want. Mine usually goes to eating out because I can't control myself. I like to eat out and eat out often. Last month I did a good job. This month however, my fun money is gone. I spent about $30 on my fiance for a couple items for V Day even though we decided because of our budget not to buy each other anything. But I had to get a card and some chocolates for her. And then I got a romantic movie. I feel it is our first V Day together since being engaged and I don't just want to not do anything. So it came out of my fun money. I'm ok with that.

Now I have to figure out a way to make it through the last 17 days of this month without spending any more money. I guess this will force me to not eat out. On another note, somehow my fiance is an amazing saver and has all her money for this month plus $40 left over from last month. I need to learn from her! Next month I will try to have some left over money!
