Saving for Babies

The husband and I had a financial meeting on Sunday. We reviewed our expenses, and we strategized on how to increase our savings, ASAP. We need an extra $100K to pay for surrogacy, and I turn 30 next month and we'd like to have children before we turn 50!

Our new plan for saving is that we won't spend more than $25 each weekday. It seems like a lot of money for expenses, right? I thought this was going to be easy. We'd have $100K by next Thursday.

On Monday, I spent $50 on gas for my 4Runner, $35 at Williams-Sonoma for a cake pan, and $12 at lunch. FAIL.

On Tuesday I spent $20 at the dry cleaners, $8 on lunch, and $70 at eBay. FAIL.

Today, I spent $8 at lunch. SUCCESS!

Takeaway: Saving for our extra $100K is going to be tough, and in the future I'm going to ask my husband to pick up the dry cleaning.

  1. Um ... you didn't tell me you got a cake pan from William-Sonoma.
