    I bought groceries and gas last week, so don't need to do that again for awhile.
    I'm not really sure how many "no-spend" days I've had so far in 2016, so I'll just start now.

    Today will be no-spend. It's cold outside and I don't plan to leave the house at all.
    As long as I stay off Amazon, I'll be good!

    I'm not going to set a goal for this. I'm just going to track them and get as many as possible.

    Dang... I've been "gone" for 7 days not counting today. If I remember right of the seven days ( not counting today yet ) I've had 3 spend days and 4 no spend. Today I'm not sure of.

    I have too many challenges to keep up with on a daily basis. My new plan is to track on calendar by my laptop my no spend days and post on Monday nights. Last 2 days have been spends. Will try a little harder this week.

    Yesterday was a spend day, I bought lunch for my parents and SO - we had Thai food. My mom was short on hours this check so I didn't want her having to buy food after driving 1.5 hours to see us. Today is a no spend day and I'm shooting for not spending until Saturday.

    I just discovered that I can view a calendar in Quicken and it shows all financial activity for each day.
    So far this year, I have 9 no-spend days, today will make 10.
    Tomorrow, I will pick up a $4 prescription refill - so a small spend day.

    Packed all the lunches and dinner will be baked mac and cheese.

    I did give ds11 $2.00 from the change jar for the snack bar for play rehearsal because we didn't have anything to bring and he is very hungry by the time school ends, and he won't get home until 4:30.

    Other than that, we shouldn't be spending anything.

    No spend day here. I was thinking about buying lunch today because I was super hungry, but I figured if I didn't and just drank the protein shake I bought I was helping two challenges at FV!

    I was off work on Wednesday. I stayed home most of the day, except for going to the gym. That evening I realized I hadn't spent a single dime all day ! I brought my own water to the gym...lol

    Breakfast, lunches and dinner, no spend. Kids asked if I could order pizza for dinner and I opened the fridge and showed them the entire shelf of leftovers. NOPE!

    I will spend $12 tonight, as DS11 is going to open skate at the local rink with his friends, and it's $8 to get in and I give him $4 for Gatorade and a snack. I don't mind that $12 at all, as it is good, clean fun, and the local rink open skate is big with the middle schoolers in our school.

    I'm hopeful for a no spend weekend, as well!
