The past two days were no spend days. Yay! I'm also planning a no spend day for tomorrow.

Today I rushed out of the house. I should have been better prepared. I should have woke up earlier. I was/ did neither and spent $3 on coffee this morning.

I purchased groceries for an even $25 and spent $15.50 on toiletries.
The toiletries category for the year is now exhausted and I'm left with only two spending categories: food groceries and Christmas.

Yesterday and the day before we ate mostly food that was on the brink of being too old, while satisfying in the sense that I'm proud to have not thrown those items in the trash the exercise made for a few very blah meals.

My goal spending for the month is $432 of which I have $388.50 remaining.

Average daily spending for 2015: $18.19

Now onto Christmas cards! I'm rather behind in the endevour as I've spent at least two months brainstorming what I'll do for the cards themselves this year. I think I've finally come up with an idea that I like but now it must be executed. I truly love sending Christmas cards, this is one ball that I refuse to see dropped over the wonderful holiday season thus I better get moving. (I'm a little jealous of Frugally Challenged who has just announced the job done on her end (although I applaud of all your hard work!))


  1. Honestly, when things are crazy and I'm running late, sometimes a splurge helps get me in order.
    I have some food in the frig that we need to eat but I'm so not interested in. And I know if I freeze it, it will just take up space because I don't see myself wanting to eat it.
