Today was a planned no spend... I've not been doing well with sticking to the plan over the past month.
We ran out of milk yesterday and milk is a must have here in the $12 a day home.
"Well there goes another foiled no spend. Or...
Ah ha! Return bottles."
I manged to scrounge up enough return bottles to purchase a gallon of milk which makes today a successful no spend cheat, and NO SPEND day 40 for the year.
We have to pay a 10cent deposit on all our carbonated bottled beverages. My household doesn't drink a ton of pop and my hubby who loves micro brews doesn't drink a ton of beer but we'll have one or two grocery bags filled with empty bottles once or twice a month. Since I already paid for the deposit and include it in the grocery tally I don't count the bottle return as spending a second time around when I redeem it. Yay!
Average daily spending for 2015: $18.24
