Remember how I did NoSpend November last year? Well this year I decided to try it in December. There are a couple of reasons for this shift. First of all I had a vacation planned already for November so I didn't want to skimp on it since vacations for me are so rare. The other reason is that while last November was difficult (primarily because of football season) it wasn't as big a stretch to pull off. Christmas is a big spending time and I found that instead of really saving on holiday spending, it could have been differed. So is it really no spend? Tough call. So in that spirit I modified one rule from 09. No Christmas stockpiling.
No Change November sprung as a result of things being moved to December. I can now compare it to December as well as last November. I also get a chance to see if I am able to track spending when it is happening all the time. Lets see how it all goes! Also of note, I am changing how I list acquired and consumed. If I acquired a cookie and ate it all in the same day, it will only be listed in consumed. Acquired will only be present for things that make it to the end of the day. The exception to this is cashflow.

Day 18: *****o
I had a good name for this day but I'm not going to post it because it would give away the present idea I had. I tried to get a lot of Christmasy stuff done today but it didn't work out so well. It required using the truck to get out of the driveway though, which meant more gas. So the morning was taken up with that and the afternoon was mostly hanging out with Dacia and then eating Chili that Patrick made. Sarah came by to pick up one of the pies and dropped off $20 bucks which covered both. The second one will be picked up tomorrow. Oh! I also edited and posted this loverly video.
InventoryAcquired: $20, gas
