Yikes where'd that bill come from?

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 23: Wait and See


Today was my first back at work for a while. It was a little hard to get motivated since it is going to be just a one and a half day week. I got quite a bit done though but much of it was done while waiting around for people to make some decisions that are out of my hands. Breakfast was yogurt free - apple and granola bar. For lunch Ryan and I went to Sake House and I opted for a bento box. After work I was so wiped out it was about all I could to do start some laundry and lay down on the couch. All the driving of the past week caught up to me and I almost felt like I had a cold coming. Patrick and Kim make a turkey pot pie out of leftovers from last night and were nice enough to share. Before I sacked out I remembered that I had a bill to renew my Family Handyman subscription, so I did that online too.
