I missed a couple of days but let's see how I did with the first week. (I think I went a little over). This is the total from last nights evening out on the town
Money spent: 61 dollars
On? Dinner out ($25), Drinks($22), show ($8), and unexpected cab ($6).
Money left: -$19.50
All in all, it's not too too bad. I'll be saving a little bit of money on transit this week because I'm buying Kristen's brothers CTA pass from him for 6 dollars and that gives me an extra 2 days before I have to buy one. So instead of spending 96 dollars on transit, I'm spending $75. So things are ok, just have to reign it in.
