Update as of Sunday August 56th

Spend: 0

No spend: 3

Allowable Spend: 2

The allowable spend was for the church envelope. We did go out to brunch after Mass, but I had a gift card that covered all but the tip. Hubby used change from his pocket for that purpose.

I want 16 no-spend days (would like 20, don't know if I can make it).

I spent last Saturday, though obviously I didnt buy enough milk as we’re down to less than 1 gallon— have told kids to make it last until Thursday morning. 😐 I also bought gas & clothes at Old Navy last Friday.

No personal spending today though I have a Norwex order to put in as soon as my reactivation fee clears.

So I’m currently at:

No-Spend days: 5
Spend days: 2
Want 16-20 no spend days for August.

I don't plan to spend until Thursday Aug 9, rather I only have $4 cash until Thursday. I do have a salad to cobble together for tomorrow’s summer swim party, so if I dont have yogurt I may buy one — trying not to do so though.

Counting today as an allowable spend as I am shopping and picking up scripts. Paying bills online as well.

So I shopped on Tuesday, spent nothing yesterday, and shopped again today though I surely wish I’d waited. I also went to Dr this morning, then got a RX filled.

Totals are now-
Spend days: 4
No-spend days: 5
Still wanting 15-20 no spend days.

I don't think I’ll shop tomorrow, but may buy more milk Saturday depending on how I feel.
