August Challenge: Day 2--Failure Strikes! :(
So far, so good on the spending front. Well, maybe not entirely. Remember when I mentioned in my challenge reveal post that I had already planned a dinner with a friend where I was going to end up blowing my challenge just this much? Well, that dinner was last night. Nothing like blowing the challenge right out of the gate. However, it goes a tiny step further. Yeah. . .I'll admit it. I screwed up. I thought I had been all smooth by going out and scoring a coupon to the place where we were going to be eating. Until the moment that I drove up to the restaurant. My girlfriend had given me the name of the place. I had plugged the same name into my GPS and it had led me right to the front door. However, there was a different name on the sign/front door. Same type of food, just different name. So, I figured I wasn't going to be able to use my coupon. Looking back on it, I totally should have asked them if they would accept it, but. . .alas, I just sucked it up and paid the bill. Grand total spent: $18.73. Ouchies.
