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 3: Chinese finally

Man oh man this is hard to remember what I did this week.. I think I have it sorted out now though. This morning I went to take a tour of the free clinic in Christiansburg. I got a free squishy broccoli thing. On the way to work we stopped by McDonalds and I got one of those McGriddle meals. Tasty but toxic :)

Lunch was a big ol club sandwich at PK's wich included some leftovers. Dinner was with Dacia and as you might guess was Chinese for dinner she owed me from a football ticket so that was covered. I let her have some pie to take home too.


Acquired: McGriddle meal, club sandwich leftovers, General Tso's Chicken
