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 26: Updates Are Slow


What did I do the day after Christmas? Very little. What did you expect? Nothing new in or out of my pocket. Anna came up to visit so there were more presents exchanged. Just a nice relaxing day. The only exception was preparing for a huge storm that was likely to hit the area. Luckily it dodged us but it did have an effect on family traveling home. All is well and cookies are dwindling and dinner was at an empty Chinese restaurant, 'Christmas Story' style.
