 the green number is the difference from last week,
 (the parenthesized is a snapshot of what the money was spent on.)

Overall a really good week. We did go out for dinner last week but we are within our budgeted food amount. We had to buy a new thermometer ours had died and we had a sick kid, she is fine just a cold. I also dyed my hair, I am really liking it.

I am really trying not to buy anything this weekend. We are very under budget and I would love to put it toward our debt repayment.
