I will be spending at Family Dollar today on household items. I need a gallon of vinegar for cleaning, toilet paper, etc. I have the FD app on my phone and they frequently have good t.p. coupons so I will use that if I can.

I'm "funny" with the t.p. - if I only have a couple of unopened packs left, I don't have enough - I like to have a couple packages in the reserve - so I don't buy more when I'm out - I buy more when I have two packages left.

I bought groceries and ordered dog supplements, but can't remember if I did them on the same day. So I think I'm at Day 14 out of 20.

This will be day 18 of no spending. I am actually reaching the point of wanting to spend. Good thing I have bill paying and shopping tomorrow.

That should put paid to any spending need I seem to be developing.

Isn't it great being able to watch that number go up. I feel a sense of accomplishment each time I post a new number.
Yes it's a great feeling to watch the no-spends go up, but it's equally satisfying watching the amount in the chequing account knowing that savings will grow also.

Not having checked in since Sunday, I'm adding 3 to bring the total to 17 days NS.

Today will be a spend day, but it will be the only one this week. This will keep me at 18 no spend days, but there are still more days this month to add to this total.
