Yesterday I came this close to suggesting to my husband that we get pizza for dinner from a pizza place. Picture me putting my thumb and pointer finger so close together that there's virtually no air between the two. I really didn't want to get in the kitchen last night and I really wanted pizza.
I'm definitely getting better at this self control thing. I did not suggest pizza to hubby but rather I asked if he wanted me to warm the left over taco meat for tacos. Thus NO SPEND day 26 for 2015 is in the books for yesterday! And we ate leftoverS last night. I heated up the taco meat for him and chopped up an onion. I heated up the leftover chicken and dumplings for me. I boiled spaghetti noodles and heated up left over spaghetti sauce for little Abe. LeftoverS!
Today is shopping day and then I'll try for another 3 or 4 no spends in a row. I don't think I can say it enough, I hate shopping. Ugh. My budget for today is $60 and my resolve is super low. I've checked the sales. I have a list made out. Now I just need to get up and go and stick to the plan. The latter half is the part I'm worried about. Again, my resolve today is super low... here we go!
I'm posting number now reflecting "the plan" and hopefully I'll be more inclined to stick to it so I don't have to adjust the numbers I'm now about to post. Yes, I am that pathetic.
Average daily spending for 2015: $17.49
$185.93 left to spend in March
