Target.. my Nemesis

The New Plan

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 this time I figured I would get back into the blogging habit by No Change November showing you what happens in a typical month for me. I will do my best to be realistic about it and not restrict my spending out of shame since you're watching! The only noted difference is that I am not allowing Christmas presents to get stockpiled a head of time. A benefit of this activity is for me to see how well I can track my spending. In this age of digital payments I rarely look at bank accounts or credit card statements. Lets see how it goes!

Day 14: Corrie!


I was struggling to find things to do today. Put away laundry, cleaned, made a mess, watched tv. Dacia went to Kobe with me and afterward I dropped off something at the post office. On the way out we ran into my friend Corrie. I hadn't seen her in a while so we talked quite a bit. After that I took Dacia to Michael's where I found an artificial tree with lights that was broken. It was marked down to $9.99 but I think it will be a good project to fix. Target was next but I avoided buying anything there. I played around with it when I got home but it wasn't a super easy fix so I will look at it another day. I really was pretty useless the rest of the day but I got through a show that I was watching and talked to some people on the phone. I did shoot a video for my youtube site. That turned out well.
