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 6: Patio party


Today I did laundry, picked up a few things from Kroger and I fixed the storm door (not with things from Kroger). It's always been horribly drafty so I ripped some wood to support the door better on the side and made a strip to add to the bottom of it, slapped on a new weather strip type thing and it was perfect. Some of the things I needed to get from Home Depot but I used a gift card that I'd received a little while back. Brunch was cereal. I forgot to get sugar and eggs but Patrick and Kim picked some up for me. For dinner I ate at Sarah's patio party. I had to buy gas on the way out though so I suppose it wasn't a completely free meal. We had cider, Thai chicken soup, chili, cookies, candy corn (that's a lot of stuff that starts with C) and she made marshmallows too!
