We also spent alot of cash, I don't know the exact number, maybe $150-$200?  I didn't even keep track of our cash spending this week.  Huge fail on my part :(
I find that having and using cash makes it harder for me to track where the money's going, but I know that it's just a matter of writing the purchases down.  I need to put more effort into tracking expenses.

One success on my part this weekend is I have a meal plan for the week.  I made a turkey sausage and cheese quiche last night and that will be today's lunch.  So I need to ensure that I am not spending any more money on lunch today, or this week even.
I'm glad that I got a few more Christmas presents out of the way, but the list is still long.  I need to get more organized.  I feel like I tell myself that each and every week.
