No Spend/Low Spend December Challenge

Post by Jackielou » Sat Dec 01, 2018 11:20 am

I found it difficult to keep track of my no spend days in the regular check in. So I am starting this up once again.

Since it is hard not to spend this month I changed the title a bit.

No Spend: 1

Allowable Spend: 0

Low Spend; 0

I am hoping to be a bit more spend mindful this month. The last two months were pretty spendy.

If anyone else wishes to join in they are more than welcome.

Here it is December third. I better update this while I remember and before things get crazy today.

No Spend: 2

Allowable Spend: 1

Low Spend: 0

Counting today as a no spend. I will be much too busy to spend anything at all.

Much easier keeping track of no spend/spending days this way.

Update

No Spend: 3

Allowable Spend: 2

Low Spend: 1

As you can see this could end up being an even worse month for spending than last month.

Yikes this does not look good. I am hoping that next week is better considering the amount of cash I spent at Costco it better be.

A little bit better, but not by much. I am really going to have to dig deep this month. I hope to add another three no spend this week (do have to pick up cat food, dairy, and perhaps ground meat or stew meat if on sale this week).

The way prices are rising here I just wonder how those that spend their money foolishly are going to make it.
