Yesterday was unplanned spending day #2. Went to walfart with my daughter (always a mistake) and got a couple of needed deals like clearance conditioner for $1 bottle each. However I spent $21 on clearance items for my granddaughter and a $12 termite kit, half price. If it works it will be worth every penny I spent. For a company to come out and install a termite system is $1000 plus quarterly fees. If it works I can but a lot of these kits full price for $1000.

January is supposed to be a no-spend month, but so far we had only 3 true no-spend days. Some of it we don't control, because that's when bill payments, etc. fall on. As far as discretionary spending, we've been primarily spending on groceries and gas, a couple of birthdays that have come up so we needed to get gifts, cat food, and a haircut. We've also started tracking each expenditure in a budget planner. My goal is to try to increase the number of no-spend days each month to get to at least 10.

Yesterday was unplanned spend #3 of the month. When grocery shopping I saw the ends you put on a hose to turn the water on/off on clearance for $1 each, normally $5. I bought 8 because the were good ones unlike the plastic ones we currently have.

Today spend. I didn't leave house but hubs went to Ace Hardware to get that tape they advertise on TV for cracked tubs in bathroom. While I did't do the spend I'm counting cause I'm not leaving the house much on my own. So I'll count as a spend.

On the other hand if he's out and gets a junk donut or whatever that ones not on me.

Today the 1st and spend already. Couldn't keep him from going to Dollar General. $24.32 spent and also added to Grocery Budget Challenge. This isn't going to be easy with having to count him in this.
I'd like to shoot for at least 15 no spends for this month.
