Re: Starting our 2018 No Spend Challenge

I can't believe a week has gone by since I posted. My only spend was gas for my car (minivan actually). It usually runs me about $35 a week and I generally use it for work. No stores, unless you count DH going out. He bought windshield wiper fluid for my car and nose drops for himself at Walgreen s....

Re: Starting our 2018 No Spend Challenge

Yesterday, besides using up more gas to get to work and eating cereal from my stash, the only out of pocket spend was a gallon of milk, $2.99, at Walgreen s. DH just told me this morning that he ordered one of his meds, so I should find out the co-pay in a few days. Today and tomorrow should be stay...

Re: Starting our 2018 No Spend Challenge

A no spend day since that snow storm hitting the east coast caused my company to close, so I didn't't even use gas. Eating what's stocked up or leftover.

Re: Daily Check In December 20, 2017

Good morning. It is chilly around 30 but going up in to the 50's.Unusual for this time of year. Suppose to get colder and maybe even some light snow showers tomorrow.

Re: Starting our 2018 No Spend Challenge

Great start to a new year. We did not go out, so no money spent, no gasoline used. Heat is set at 60 or 62 depending on the room. We ate well today. I have about a few cups or so of cooked turkey left from boiling down the Thanksgiving turkey and Christmas eve turkey breast. So, I made a few meals a...
