2: I refuse to even type it out. We're going to SeaWorld and *trying* to stay under the $90 fun money we pulled out, but that may not happen. So yah. This day doesn't count
3: $0, except some extra cash.
4: $0. I'm calling it early. We don't need anything anyway.
5: 7.xx Dh bought McDs
6: $34.xx at grocery, then $16.16 at Taco Bell. I forgot to buy the beef needed for meatballs so i had to pay $7.99/lb and then i ran out of fruit for my smoothies. I need to re-adjust my lists now that I'm eating more. Then DS talked DH into grabbing taco bell. *sigh*
7: $0
8:$ 21.37 on DH bday present, $40 at BWW, $10 at Target for something, $3.66 at Cinnabon... DH birthday splurges on them all lol
9:$0
10: $18.97 at Target, needed more water and had to grab lunch there. My workout was 1.5 hours long, so by the time I was done the kids were starving and I just didnt have the energy to cook.
Expensive few days, and I have to go to Target AGAIN for packing tape and materials! UGH

I've been doing really well so far this month. I did have to get a poster printed for a conference and that cost $4.77 and I used my credit card.

Other than that, I've been doing great earning money on pay pal and selling things on craigslist so I can have some spending cash without using my credit cards.

Oh, but one funny/sad thing: a friend invited me out to lunch and I paid with cash and felt proud of myself for having cash and not using a credit card or check. But then I went back to my office and there was free pizza. Ugh.

Re: The no spend year: March

I've been doing great. I spent $2 last week at a thrift store. I bought 2 new ink cartridges for our printer. (Normally over $25 each!) I went and stocked up on bulk food and spent $120 on all kinds of gluten free stuff.
With Dh's lay-off on the 21st, I'm going to try to cook from the pantry with the exception of milk & produce. Our budget has just gotten crazy tight and I have to be no-spend. No more putting all the bonus into savings (But if we tighten up... we won't have to spend our savings).
