Extreme NoSpend

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 19: Cookie Crypto

Spare change was dug for and found. Lots too $14.40. Breakfast was waffles. Baking ingredients sucked up all the change. I made a pie for Aaron which turned out just fine. I took Dacia out to the airport and ate some Chili for lunch/dinner. Several people came over around 7 and we made cookies. It was fun and much excitement was had by all. Can you believe that none of them had seen "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"? Crazy. Of course.. here's some video footage of the days events.


Acquired: $14.40, groceries, 1.5 mocha pies, too many cookies
Consumed: $17.99, waffles, leftover chili, cookie and pie ingredients, gas
