No Spending this Weekend!

Well, Saturday and Sunday at least --- I've been trying to get some "No Spend" days in this month. So far, I've only been able to pull off 3 of those this month. - the 5th, the 9th and the 10th (today). Of course it helps that I haven't left the house since I got home Friday! I've spent the weekend doing yard work, cleaning out closets and even a bit of vegging out!

I will have to head out later today --- I have to go by a friend's house to feed and water her cats while she's out of town. I am deliberately planning on wearing ratty clothes and no makeup so I won't be tempted to just swing by anywhere else since I'll "already be out". I know how my mind works, and "since I'm out anyway" can easily translate to $$$. However, I WON'T go anywhere else if I make sure I look like crap. Because we all know if you look like crap you will run into 15 people you know and be quite embarrassed due to the fact that you look. like. crap.

It looks like I should be able to pull off day 3 of my monthly goal of 10 no spend days. I'm going to have to step it up a bit though or I won't make the month's goal. Planned spending is the key!


  1. I think the weekend is the hardest time not to spend any money! GREAT JOB!! :)!

    P.S. It never fails, when I look my worst in public is when I see everyone I know! :)!

  2. It does help if you don't leave the house! And my house is now all sparkly clean!
