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 30: I'm Ready

Last day of course had sushi for lunch with Melissa and Sarah. Breakfast started the day and I had a granola bar as a snack before lunch. Dinner was a good one at home with Patrick and Kim. I say around pondering what to do with my last day of spending. Oddly, didn't do anything at all. No online purchases, no flights to the west coast. Dropping 1600 in a month was quite an inspiration not to spend in December. There was a bonus that state employees got this year. It would have been really easy to just blow it all without thinking. Now I have lots of cool ideas for things to make for presents, projects to work on, food to make. Going to be a fun month. I'll update the final count when the credit card site shows what I spent :(
