    I did grocery shop today ($63.97) but I don't count that in my "spend" days!

    Today is a no spend day!

    Yesterday was a planned spend day (annual sale on Cherry Tree Hill yarn started at midnight New Year's Eve), and today was going to be a no spend day until I broke a nail last night....ticks me off to have a spend day for something that's going to cost about $3 to fix. Oh well.....it is what it is!

    No spend day yesterday.

    Am confused, some people seem to count groceries and others don't. Is this a personal choice?

    Yes it is.

    I personally count everything including bills since it's still $$$ out of my hands.

    I'm going to try for 15 no spend days but I count everything (groceries, bills, gas, etc.) as a spend day since it's $$$ out of my hands.

    The 1st was a spend day.

    Thanks madjen and imagine. I always seem to buy extra bits and pieces when I shop so a no spend day for me will be a complete no spend and hopefully this will help me to become more organised.

    Tomorrow may be a spend day. Dangerously low on canned puppy food. These two GSD pups are eating about 4x their weight in food every day!!
