Update

No Spend: 9

Allowable Spend: 4

Counting today as a no spend because I am going to be sticking close to home and not heading any place that encourages me to spend. Lots to do around here to keep me busy.

I am counting today as no spend. I went shopping yesterday so I should not need to shop again until some time after Christmas...Or at least I hope.

I might have to change this to a low spend day. All depends on if oldest DS stays a couple more days with us. Kind of storming and I would really like him to stay until the storm clears up.

Last day of the month and as I don't plan on spending today.

Update

No Spend: 22

Allowable Spend: 8

Low Spend: 1

I didn't do as badly as I thought I would. I managed to stay out of stores, get settled in and put my mind off shopping for fun (did not even hit the stores on Boxing Day or any time during what is now Boxing Week sales).

I am hoping to do just as well next month. Though having to travel and stay in a hotel for tests could in fact make this very difficult. I may have to plan spending accordingly (do some grocery shopping in the city instead of here at home).
