Aaaahhh! I think I may have spent a little too much on my mother’s day gifts. And I think so because I didn’t plan accordingly. Now, I’m not broke or close to over drafting my account, but I definitely could’ve spent less than what I did had I been paying attention.
So here’s the breakdown:
- Flowers – $53.20
- Chocolates (See’s Candy) – $13.46
- Two Tickets to the Dodger’s Game – $148.23
- Stadium Parking – $25
- Raffle Entry – $10
- Food at Game – $30
And the total comes to…$279.89.
That’s way more than I planned to spend. Don’t get me wrong, totally love my mom and would do all in my power for her, but damn. I dropped nearly $300 on one holiday on one person. Not to justify this over spending, but had I spent all of this money in one day instead of over the course of a few weeks, I would’ve been more conservative with what was leaving my wallet.
I gotta continue to focus on saving, and hustling, and creating more exposure for my business and getting more business in general. It’s nice to know I can afford to spend nearly $300 on someone, but if I don’t have to, I shouldn’t. Pricey lesson learned.
How much did you spend on your mom yesterday?
