Good intentions...

December 14th, 2006 at 07:13 pm

I failed at having 4 no-spend days in a row this week.

Tuesday (day #1 of my no-spend goal) I was able to not spend any money.

Wednesday I was talked into going out for lunch with some co-workers. lunch is my social time, so I have a problem saying no. On the up side I just ordered a bowl of soup so it cost me under $5.

Today I had a dr appt (which I forgot about earlier this week). I had a $20 co pay there. Then I decided to pick up my gift cert since I was already out and about - $20. Then I went to JoAnns and picked up a few tins for christmas goodies - $8. Finally I put gas in my car $20. I am hoping this tank lasts me until we leave on christmas eve.

I hope the only other thing I will need to buy this next week is groceries - as long as I plan well, I shouldn't go over budget.

    Sounds like your spending was thought out and controlled. Don't be too hard on yourself!

    I was also trying to not spend between Tuesday & Friday, but I missed my first day! I had forgotten about a work party that I was supposed to bring brownies to, so I had to stop & buy some donuts for $3.49 instead. I did ok yesterday & today though! Don't be too upset. You still did well!
