I'm thinking of budgeting $100 a week. Any spending on clothes, beauty items and salon treatments will be deducted from this amount. The leftover money will be saved and used towards wish list items. I'm also giving myself a $20 bonus for any home-cooked weekend dinners. I cook every weeknight dinner, but we're usually so busy on the weekends that we grab take-out for dinner. If I can find the time and energy to cook on the weekends - I've saved us at least $20, so I think it's fair to keep it. (I don't know how often I'll take advantage of this bonus though - takeout can be such a lifesaver!) I will allow myself extra spending during holidays. We don't go away that often - but when we do, I want to take advantage of the opportunity to get items that aren't available locally.
Hope my savings plan works! Do you have any wish list items at the moment - how do you plan on saving for them?
