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 16: Off to NC

You're not going to get a lot out of me the next week or so. I'm on vacation with Anna down in Asheville. Dacia was nice enough to be a surrogate lap for Liza so patrick doesn't have to deal with too much yowling. Drive down was a little rainy. We stopped at a nice place in Meadowview that had good pie (pizzas and squash). The lunch was covered by money in a card that Anna received as a gift for helping a coworker out (gift from her grandma). Leftovers resulted. We checked into the B&B and got some restful tv watching in. I feel this is perfectly acceptable since Anna got to sleep in the car on the way down. We sorted out our plans for the rest of the week and went out to dinner at a place called Kubo. It is a nice Japanese place that provided us with tempura sweet potatoes, shrimp dumplings and a huge pile of hibachi steak, chicken and shrimp. Leftovers again resulted. It's nice because the place we're staying has a fridge that we can store things in. Before bed we watched a movie from downstairs. Day one in Asheville done.


Acquired: pizza (leftovers), squash pie, Kubo dinner (leftovers), tickets to the Biltmore
Consumed: $60.48, pizza, squash pie, Kubo dinner
