Jackie, 10 out of 13 is amazing!! I'm going to have to break down and buy dog treats tomorrow - but I am determined to make this a no spend weekend. They have some treats that someone gave us because their dog doesn't like them - and they don't like them so much - but they can do with those or do without until after work tomorrow - mama isn't spending any money!!

I will be spending a couple of days next week, and I just know on the lead up to Christmas there will be rushing out and buying all those little things I seem to have "forgotten". Hopefully I will remember to add things to my lists before I shop, though sometimes my brain is not functioning correctly.

I can certainly relate to that, Jackie! I already have a list started for when I do go shopping - flour, coffee, dish soap...on and on...

And I do need to pick up a few little things for Christmas - my son and daughter-in-law's chocolate oranges and little odds and ends like that - that is the type of Christmas shopping that drives me bonkers.

Yep, and those are the little things that I seem to forget to write down and then have to run and purchase in a special trip.

Since it is so darn cold out, I can safely say that I do not plan on going anywhere at all today (unless it is a quick walk to get the mail).

This will give me 11 no spend days so far this month.

I do the same! And I'll see things I know I need and think "I'm not shopping for that type of thing today" so I won't get it - then I wish I had!
