If it’s just you, probably $50 is enough. And do you have enough meat in the home? I understand that we often overindulge with food, in particular during the festivities. But we need fuel for our body, so I would try to be careful with that. Not spending money and then getting sick isn’t good at all.
But I love your attitude.
Some people avoid to use to pay by cards if they want to save money. You make a budget, and then you make different envelopes with cash inside. One for food, one for fuel, one for utilities and so on… And you have to live that way. When the money is finished, that’s it. Paying in cash makes you more aware of your spending habits.
