Sorry about the above, but I have not been able to leave a comment and last night I wrote out this big long comment and it wouldn't take it. Grrrr.

I am very rud of you, but I am tired of it too. I am doing a NO SPEND challenge and soon. I hope all is well! Blessings!

your blog rocks...I'm a leopard fan but never been bold enough to act upon it. I do have to pillows in my living room with some spots on them--does that count? lol.. AND I do have a leopard skirt i wear in summer with matching leopard italian thongs--now that does count!

I'm a mom of twins also--twin girls, that just turned 23. I'm going to have to follow your little budget information closer. I'm a pretty good spender and saver but i do know I could use work.

Nice job! The new spending total - is that for next month?

Rebecca, no, the total is what Ive spend so far this month on everything. The house payment is going to knock it all out of whack in about a week though but so far I think we've done really well.
