Today will be my 4th no spend day.

Youngest DS is going to try and start some eggplants for us in his little greenhouse type thing. If it works, those plus the peppers he brought will save us quite a bit on garden veggies.

I used to grow eggplant, Jackie. We have the hot weather it needs in the South, but we also have tons of flea beetles, which can strip the plants' leaves to skeletons. It took a lot of dusting with copper-rotenone powder, which is a fairly safe organic pesticide, to ever get any fruit thanks to those danged beetles.

Today is my fourth no-spend day. It's kind of funny how my shopping behavior has changed: if I need to order pet food, I do it on the day I buy groceries so that there's just one spending day in the week. :)

Yesterday was a no spend day and today will be as well. This will bring me to 7 no spend days this month.

Still sitting at 7 no spend days. Monday I have a dentist appointment and probably mid week our taxes will be ready for pick up. Tomorrow and Sunday should be no spend days though and that will help with the total.

So today will be no spend. This will put me at 8 for the month so far. I am a bit worried about next week and am hoping that I will only need to spend twice. Once on Monday for the dentist (driving in miserable weather I believe not going to be a happy person) and then again on Thursday for bill paying, allowance getting and grocery buying.... Boooo.
