A Planned spending day

January 20th, 2007 at 02:24 pm

I spent today, groceries. But it was budgeted for and we were within budget. Otherwise a quiet day. We're waiting for the snow storm and the Bear's game tomorrow.
Yesterday was payday, the budget was gone over, bills paid and accounts all balanced. We're sitting pretty so far.

Still on track

It's the 18th day of the year and I'm still on track. I have only had one spending day(work pig-out for bosses job promotion). I even found some money (only 7 dollars but hey!) so I think I'm doing all right.

Today was a no spend day. My husband wanted to go out to lunch when I got home from work, but I talked him into doing a 50's drive up lunch at home. (Hamburges, french fries, pickles in a paper plate and holder, with big dill pickles on the side). When we usually do this type of meal we make shakes to go with but no ice cream. We did have chocolate for milk so we did that instead. Seems so simple but we call it this when we saw a retro 50's diner on vacation and us being children of the 50's loved it. So we do it at home every once and a while.

My No Spend Week

January 12th, 2007 at 05:43 pm

I was so close to ending the week without spending a dime but.... we had a pig-out at work, there was a sign up sheet. I scanned the list and had nothing at home that fit the list so I had to stop at the grocery store. I really tried to be creative with out spending but being the end of the week, I had nothing. So close, so close. I will start again on Sunday and see how far I can go.

No Spend Day

It's Wednesday, day four in my no spend week. I am convienced I'm addicted to spending and suffering withdrawal. I think that I wouldn't have spent anything normally today anyway so why am I feeling like I need to go out shopping. Thank heaven I had a very busy day at work and am pretty tired. I'll go to bed soon and day four will be over. Hanging in there until tomorrow. Good night

No Spend Day

January 9th, 2007 at 04:02 pm

I have had three days now, not spending a thing. My dinner came from eating down the freezer and pantry. I'm working on a no spend week, which will be hard since one of my weakness is "Kohl's 15% off if you use your charge". I had a day off today and usually I clean the house, do errands and hit the stores. I almost weaken thinking I could hit the stores and just look, but nah, I know myself.

No Spend Day

January 7th, 2007 at 02:49 pm

I'm coming to the end of a great "no-spend day". I set up my budget, cleaned out my purse, started up with my coin jar, cleaned out my 2006 files, started gathering the tax stuff, put the rest of our christmas stuff away, cleaned the car, made chili and corn muffins. I did almost run to the store for green peppers for the chili but stopped and we will just do without today. I'm feeling very pleased with my self.We also listed all our credit cards with associated phone numbers, all our emergency phone numbers. I found all the credit bureaus fraud line numbers, we took out all unneccessary items from the wallets. It's all for "just in case" something happens. We have it in a safe place now. I am going to try to have a no spend week.
