January Shopping List

I've started a new monthly series for 2014. I'm tracking all my "selfish" spending for the year with the hope that it keeps me more accountable. I was finalizing our budget for 2013 and was embarrassed at how much I spent, so I won't say. I will say that I commit to spend only a fraction of that horrible number this year. To start off with a bang, I gave myself $20 for January. What?!!! "That's nothing!" you say?? Well, that 's what I thought too, but I was able to stretch the heck out of that $20! 

Here's what I got...
