Friday Follies: Blowing the budget (link up your follies, too!)

Friday Follies is a weekly feature here at Frugal Follies, where you can link up your story about a crazy, silly, or just boneheaded thing you did in the name of frugality. Last week I told the story about my garbanzo cake disaster; in previous weeks I shared my story about buying Rome apples for school lunches and about the strange thing in my freezer.

This week's biggest folly for me has to be my trip to the local Albertsons store closing sale.  As I tell my story here, I went to the sale without having a plan.  Though I did get some good bargains, I ended up spending almost $80, way past my budget of $60.  Ah, well.  Such is life, and I'll have to pay for it by having an even smaller weekly budget for the next month.

Link up your good shopping stories at my other linkup, Wednesday Weekly Shopping, and check out more fails at Friday Fails

What funny or crazy things have you done in the name of frugality? Please leave a link to your post below.  I would appreciate it if you had a link back to Friday Follies in your post!  If you don't have a blog, then leave a comment.  Thanks!
