We’re a little over half way done with September! So, I want to give an update on our no spend month. It has been a lot harder than I anticipated. I bought some things that weren’t on my list!
I’m sharing with full transparency to hold myself accountable and to show that I’m not perfect and it’s a process.
So we haven’t been perfect by any means, but it is so much less than we were spending last month! Total this month we spent $55.18 on non-essentials. This no spend month has been a fun challenge, and hopefully I’ll have even more discipline the rest of the month!
Some big successes have been present too! Pandora released a new jewelry line, and I did not immediately buy it all! We went to California for a long weekend and spent within our predetermined budget! We ate ALL the food we bought from Costco. No wasted spinach or left over avocados! We finished it all! And we even had some great breakfasts at home!
