This fabulously (and a tad bit scary) snowy Thursday turned out to be a NO SPEND, number 4 for the year, that I'm particularly proud of. My work phone was broke Monday thru Wednesday and I needed to fill out a bunch of reports on the replacement phone today at 5 different stores. I drove at least 100 miles today in this nonsense (for the record I'm used to LOTS of driving from years past and I'm very careful in snow which I'm also very accustomed to driving in). Did I want to pick up a Starbucks beverage during the middle of the day? Oh yeah. Did I want to grab a few clearance items while working in the 5 different stores? Yep. Did I want to get a few groceries before I headed home. Yes I did. I really wanted to pick up a box of granola bars for my little Abe. But I resolved this morning to not spend a dime. I brought some snacks with me for the day, made myself a big cup of coffee before I left the house and just stuck to it. I'm kind of shocked that I pulled this one off. Usually when I work a longer day, particularly one with a lot of driving, I can't squeak out a no spend.
Average daily spending for 2015: $20.11
We only went out for about 3 minutes to shovel the front steps.
But he liked getting out of the house.
That strange thing in back was making a home in my basement.
I'm getting rid of it.
Little Abe calls in the spider webby roof.
I have no idea what it is; I think it was a project some kid made at one time.
