2009 planner- to record my spending in Smile

TOTAL SPENT: $138.24

Dinner tonight: Hot Italian beef & White Rolls with butter/honey

Had to come back and edit my original total spent for the day. I went ahead and prepaid our CSA share for the summer/fall to save 5%. We will get 26 boxes of food with 15-20 pounds of organic fruits/veggies in them delivered starting in June. So add another $716.30 to my total for the day.

Which brings my total spending for today to $854.54

Yikes! That's a big number Smile
