13 of 26. 50%
Tomorrow will be 14 of 27, because there's no time in the day to even THINK of spending, thank goodness, so 51.85%

15 of 30. 50%

I haven't actually left the house since... um... :?

I don't remember when it was. Doesn't stop DH though - the spend day between Saturday and now was my fault, I sent him to get something :lol: He did well, he got the one thing and came back.

For the first time ever, a greater than 50% month: 16 of 31... 51.61%

Just barely, but I'll take it. It's harsh when you realize the key to no-spend days is to have a job based at home.

Grocery shopping? ONE day a week. If you need it and we don't have it... You're going to wait :lol:

All right... 0%

And we will unfortunately remain at 0% until, at minimum, Nov 8, whereupon I will try like the &#@! to not spend for at least 16 of the remaining days of the month so I can approximate my October results in November.

I have to leave town to see what it is I will be managing remotely. <sigh>

I'm terrible at visualization, I have to actually SEE it to have any idea what's going on, so off I go.

OH! I posted in recipes, a pumpkin gingerbread. All the warmth and spice of gingerbread AND beta carotene!

2 of 9... 22.22%

As predicted, no no-spend days were had before the 8th. I'm trying to carry over 'til Sunday but we'll see how it goes.
