Um.. how come you eat out so much?

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 22: Harry

It's important to note that while I've been hanging out with Anna, we've been splitting bills. So you might have seen sometimes where my consumption/aquisition was not representative of my spending. Today was primarily on Anna. We went to get oil changes together and walked up the road to get some donuts from Carol Lee's. Next we went off to see the new Harry Potter movie. At the theater we dared to order hot dogs and they said it would take a little while to make them. I thought that was a good sign because it meant that at least they were made fresh. Whether or not the hot dog itself was healthy, who knows. Since it was going to take a while, the girl that sold us the food said she'd bring it to the theater. How cool is that? The movie turned out to be pretty decent.

Anna headed out of town and I got to work on some things for the office. Patrick and Kim had a potluck tonight so I got a free Thanksgiving dinner. Very tasty.

Since the trip is over now, here's a couple of videos I made of our adventures. Enjoy.
