$12.76 to the $20.00 Challenge

September 14th, 2006 at 12:13 pm

.07 from my husband's car
12.69 from my car
12.76 this pay period

My husband's car was completely empty because he made an out-of-state trip last week. I was pretty psyched about my car, but unfortunately I have a trip for work this weekend, and I won't be getting reimbursed for my travel. My destination is about 1.5 hours from here, and I'll be doing some driving once I'm there. Hopefully I won't use too much gas. I also have a trip next week (not a budgeted gas week) that I will get reimbursed for, so I'm trying to figure out how to account for that. Maybe a category for reimbursed work expenses/expenses, and another for reimbursed work expenses/income to even it out? I'll have to think about how to account for that since I do it about once per month.

    Is this change found in your car?

    I wish! I budget forty dollars for gas for each of our two cars every other week, and if we need less than the forty, I am putting what's left into my $20 challenge account. I'm hoping that it will motivate us to drive less by consolidating errands, etc. What really helped though was that gas dropped to $2.37 this fill-up, compared to close to $3.00 two weeks ago when I filled up.
