Update as of August 12

Spend: 0

No spend: 9

Allowable Spend: 3

I love when I can string a number of days together. Mind you it is so hot even the idea of leaving the house to spend is very unpleasant.

My current totals:

Spend days: 6
No-spend days: 8
My goal is 15-20 no-spend days, I think I'm going to do it!

Now I hope to not shop again until Friday morning... cross your fingers for me, hmm? :lol:

Two more no spend days. There will be two spend days this week (tomorrow and Sunday) but that should be it. Getting much closer to my goal for the month.

I'm behind again. Oops!! :lol:

I did manage to wait to shop until Friday, then shopped Saturday as well. Sunday was a no-spend day, but today, Monday, is a spend day. We didn't qualify for reduced payment Lunches so we're doing home lunches, I must remember to buy more bread & fruit today.

Totals as of today-
Spend days: 9
No-spend days: 11
My goal is 15-20 no-spend days, I think I'm going to do it!

Now I hope to not shop again until Friday morning... cross your fingers for me, hmm? :lol:

My goal of 23 days is creeping ever closer. I know there will be no spending tomorrow, Friday, Saturday and perhaps on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing the total no spend days hit 20 by then.
