Ring In December No Spend

Post by Jackielou »

Well I couldn't think of a catchy title for this months no spend challenge so am going with ringing in the holidays theme.

Tuesday and Wednesday were no spend so I have 2 no spend days so far this month. Shopping and transferring cash today so hopefully this is my only spend day this week. Oops forgot I get a hair cut tomorrow...another spend day. It is starting already.

So it will still be 2 no spend days at the end of today. Hopefully I will have no more spending over the next 4 or 5 days. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Today will be day three of no spending.

Following the mantra of use it up, wear it out, make it do again.

Good Job Jackie! I am 3-days no spend (if you count today) and 2 spend. I spent Thursday evening on cat food, laundry soap, and every sort of thing that I was running low on for the house and I needed a couple items of makeup - all sorts of things - just no groceries.

Yesterday I spent $5 at work on raffle tickets (safety precautions in place - no money exchanges hands). I normally never, ever gamble my own money - it is a "thing" with me that actually creeps me out - but this is for charity and I might could win some really fun Christmas decorations - so - yeah.

Adding two more days of no spending.... I am at 5 now and hopefully adding a few more.

My list is getting added to for the weekly shopping trip almost every day.

Charity raffles are fun and when the money goes to a good cause, I don't consider it gambling.
