    Default I'm having a no-spend week...anyone else?

    I'm making it my goal not to spend any more money for the rest of the week. Anyone else want to jump in for accountability? I seriously want to spend money for some reason, but need to scale back now that the holidays are past (and the Christmas credit card statement will be arriving soon, yuck).

    I grocery shopped today, and that's it for me for the week.

    Who else?

    I'll join. There's no money to spend on anything so it shouldn't be too hard.

    I'm up for it! We had to spend quite a bit over the weekend and it just really stressed me out. I'm wanting to hold onto what money I have right now.

    I'm in. I doubt I'll make it entirely a no spend week as I'll do a little grocery shopping.

    Does already budgeted expense count in a no spend day? Good luck I feel this time of year is a great time to not spend money and stay home. Of course I live in maine it is easy to stay home.

    Today was my spend day of the week. Mandetory meeting in Seattle so there was parking & ferry & lunch. On the way home I tossed in a grocery stop to stock up on some canned goods too. The rest of the week is $pend-free.

    Yesterday I had to have a new battery and brake light put in the car dd drives. (For fun, try pushing a car on ice in a blizzard, lol). Except for groceries I'll be going no spend.

    I had to spend $9 to send back an unwanted Christmas gift yesterday - hope that doesn't count!

    Otherwise, doing well here on not spending. Nothing since Monday's groceries. Yay!

    We have been having a no-spend January. I do my grocery shopping on Monday and that's it. I have never had this much money in my account on the 15th of any month. Wow what a sense of money control! This is great! I think that we might even try February as well. This has become a sport to us !
