We did it!

Three days....in a row....no spend!!!

Today is payday....G-man's part time job pay is already in the account....I will get my check later today.  It is a good thing we have money again....we are out of coffee, milk, lunch stuff.....

For those of you who are accustom to having no spend days....this is probably no big deal.  But for us....it is huge!  I think we use our debit card on a daily basis for something or another.  Some of it is convenience or poor planning.  Some of it is just the rhythm of our lives....

We managed to eat what we had around (although dinner last night really left something to be desired).  Fortunately, we both had gas in our cars (but I am pretty sure that G-man is hugging the big E and will need gas today). 

And my instant coffee that I am having this morning....not bad!  It is individual packets that we purchased when our power kept going out for days on end. 

I am just a little proud of us.  :)

  1. I'm proud of you. When you need a basic like milk, its hard not to just go to the store and get it. Good job!

  4. Good for you! I hate those times when the money comes down to the wire. I've been pretty good the past few years to not do that anymore, but it still happens on occasion....sigh.

  5. Great job. It makes a difference to set aside some days to not go to any stores or run any errands, but it also means more careful planning so you don't have to visit the same store often.

  6. Great work overall but double bonus points for not spending on the coffee! I would break a 'no spend' if I ran out of coffee!
