Today will be no spend so that will bring me to 19. On course, but next week is a bad one. Appointments, grocery shopping, bill paying...not a nice week at all, quite the drain on the chequing account.

Money will be spent today. We will need to fill the vehicle to get home, and eat one meal out. Since no eating establishments are open in the city, it will be a drive through meal from a fast food place. Not my fav, but something that will be necessary considering. Hubby did not want me packing a lunch so I didn't. This will keep me at 19 days of no spending this month.

Tuesday was no spend and today should be as well. Heck, I have lots of milk left in the fridge as well as other groceries so I may even be able to have tomorrow no spend as well. I am now up to 21 no spend days. Better than I had hoped, but not as good as I would like it to be.

Yep today is going to be no spend. I will not be grocery shopping and the truck repair is being done on a recall so it is on their dime.

This brings me to 22 no spend days for this month. That will be the total as tomorrow I will need to go to the dentist (co-pay), the pharmacy, and bank for our allowances.

Not bad, but considering the spending I will be doing in May not great either.

I've already had two days of spending this week, so I seem to be bombing April miserably after six months of being as tight-fisted as Scrooge. Actually, we've just been replacing some things that were needed, but it feels rather odd to be spending money.

Today will be a spend day, but I am holding off grocery shopping for a few days. The dentist will be the costly part of the day..... So I continue to sit at the number previously stated of 22.
