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 5: Yogurt free

I didn't have any yogurt today so I went out and got a muffin and OJ from Au Bon Pain. I do so love their corn muffins. Instead of paying for it with real money I had them swipe my ID. Oddly there was some cash left on there from when I ate at a dining hall. I'll consider that not real spending for this case because it's like finding spare change. For lunch I went to Moe's with Odessa and I tried the fish tacos. I recommend them. It takes about 10 minutes for them to cook the fish up for you, but that's ok. After work I had planned to go to a movie with some friends but it ended up falling through so Dacia and I met up with Deb for dinner at India Garden. It was tasty and I got one of my usuals. Also as usual, there were no leftovers. So tasty. Oh and dinner was on Dacia because she was still paying off the ticket. All that tasty food for $8.40. what a steal!
