Target.. my Nemesis

The New Plan

Remember how I did NoSpend November last year? Well this year I decided to try it in December. There are a couple of reasons for this shift. First of all I had a vacation planned already for November so I didn't want to skimp on it since vacations for me are so rare. The other reason is that while last November was difficult (primarily because of football season) it wasn't as big a stretch to pull off. Christmas is a big spending time and I found that instead of really saving on holiday spending, it could have been differed. So is it really no spend? Tough call.


So this time I figured I would get back into the blogging habit by No Change November showing you what happens in a typical month for me. I will do my best to be realistic about it and not restrict my spending out of shame since you're watching! The only noted difference is that I am not allowing Christmas presents to get stockpiled a head of time. A benefit of this activity is for me to see how well I can track my spending. In this age of digital payments I rarely look at bank accounts or credit card statements. Lets see how it goes!

Day 2: Bad memory

Ugh... It's hard to remember what I bought and ate even when it was only five days ago. Luckily I am a very credit heavy spender. I was able to go back through my credit cards and found the following. Lunch - Rivermill... Some sort of burger with bacon and ham and cheese on it.. delicious. Yogurt was breakfast and dinner was uhh.... Oh! Dacia and I had Chinese for dinner (I think). Wait .. no.. I have no idea what I ate that night.. Maybe it was just a frozen dinner. I did eat some pie though. That was good.

Whoops almost forgot a big one. I paid for the hotel for my trip to Ashville. I am glad that I waited to get it booked because there was a 30% discount on the rate. I guess I'll go back and add that all in now


Acquired: Rivermill burger, Hotel in Asheville for next week
Consumed: $342.61, Yogurt, Rivermill burger, Stouffer's lasagna, piece of pie
