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 22: Tummy Rut Roh

I had my make up lunch with John today. I hadn't planned on going out for lunch but I was really itching to get out of the office. I took an hour off at the end of the day so I could take a nap before the drive home. Sarah came over after that and we exchanged presents which were of course well received on both sides. Packing up the car went well and I was able to remember everything even though I could have sworn that I left my camera at home. Liza napped most of the way out to pick up Leigh and we went on our way. Leigh covered gas for the trip and we only stopped once for food at BK and again for bathroom breaks. Note to self.. your tummy hates BK now... ugh no fun. Ginger ale was also purchased as a result. Also note to self, the Shell station off of 340 uses a night stick (???) for the bathroom key chain. I dropped off Leigh and she gave me some oranges to take along with me. It was late, and thus I did little other than sleep once I arrived home.


Acquired: cookies, black licorice, gas, oranges
Consumed: $13.31, Pizza, BK dinner, ginger ale
