Today I bought everything I anticipated I needed for the next couple of days because I wanted to have a couple of NO SPEND days...
Then I got to thinking...just because I have some NO SPEND days, doesn't mean I won't go over my budget. But then again, even if I just spend a little EVERY day, it would really add up.
I didn't think I would spend more than $20.00. But, the dog needed food, the guinea pig's cage needed to be cleaned out and we were out of bread so I ended up spending over $80.00. Since payday is 12 days away and we have only $200.00 in our checkbook, I'm hoping that I can have all 5 NO SPEND days this coming week! :) (The $200.00 that was missing in my paycheck because of my shortened hours is definitely noticable now.)
$200.00 will not go far as both cars need gas. So hopefully I'll have 4 NO DRIVE days too!
This will certainly be a challenge.
P.S. Thank you Giraffe Spender for showing me this neat "receipt" site!
