July No Spend Challenge

Post by Jackielou » Sun Jul 01, 2018 1:12 pm

This month I am going to try for 19 no spend days. We have a few trips to make and company so things might get a bit out of hand if I don't concentrate on keeping spending under control.

Anyone care to join in?

Allowable Spend : 1

I will update this tonight as I am trying to get our vehicle in for service hopefully today, but by tomorrow for sure.

Spend : 0

No Spend : 2

Allowable Spend : 2

I don't know how this month will work out as Hubby keeps adding appointments to the mix. These appointments are necessary (eye exams) but will cut into my no spend days and make things difficult if not impossible to reach my goal. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I usually do not keep track of my spending/no spending/planned spending days. I figure as long as I stay within my budget, it all should work out, but I am having so much success with my no-spend challenge, I thought I would try to keep track this month.

I spent on the 07/01- grocery shopping
07/02 –no spend
07/03- planned spend (an auto pay came out of my account)
07/04- no spend
07/05- no spend
07/06- planned spend- paid a couple of monthly expenses (electric and water bill). I also had to buy a printer to replace the one I have since it died, and I need a printer for work and volunteer purposes.

Tomorrow should be a no spend day and Sunday will be a planned spend- church and fill up gas tank on the way home.

I am aiming for at least 22 no spend days this month and the other 9 days should be planned spend days- budgeted things.

So far for July: 3 planned spend and 3 no spend days
