No Spend Day

WOW… I didn’t realize how much I have spent this week. It’s depressing to look at it all. Next week I have to get back on track.

 I also forgot to mention that on top of all the stuff that we did to the car we also put in this stuff to flush the engine. I used a product called STP that’s designed to unclog dirty fuel injectors in just one treatment. I don’t think the car has ever been done. So it seamed like the right thing to do.

I called my dad’s mechanic to book an appointment for him to look at the car. It has to pass safety and I don’t know what that will cost me.


  1. We are in the same boat. I already know how my own spending recap looks. I don't know if I am depressed, upset or frustrated with it and how the next one will look but I truly can't wait till all the dust settles. I wish this car thing was smoother.
