No-Spend Challenge: Update for Week 3

no spend challenge

I’ve been so surprised by this no-spend month, because other than gas or groceries (and paying our basic bills), we haven’t bought anything.  I guess it just goes to show that we don’t really need as much as we think we need!  There have been several times the girls have reminded me it’s “No-spend” month, but I’ve also had to remind them on occasion (like when they really wanted a sticker book from Amazon)!

I do wish we could spend a little less on gas, but I knew going into this month that we had several day trips to make that would keep our gas bill higher.  If we lived in town, we could walk to quite a few places, but that just isn’t feasible with our location right now.  I have been trying to cut down our trips to run errands and stay at home more often, but I’m not really seeing much gas savings yet!

Anyway, we’re down to one more week!  :)

What we spent from February 17-23, 2013:

  • Gas:  $38.28
  • Groceries:  $54.54 (Grocery Store) + $10 for Farm Eggs = $64.54

Total for the week:  $102.82

Total for February 1-23, 2013:  $292.30

I’m going to try really hard to keep us under $400 for the month!!  That’s my final goal!

Weekly Rewind: February 23, 2012


Life Rewind:

All I can tell you about this week is that I worked on taxes…I worked on taxes…I worked on taxes.  It must have fried my brain….because that is absolutely all I can remember.  I’m going to keep better records, so I don’t have to do this again next year!


I think I said that last year.


Thanks to all of your suggestions, I did buy QuickBooks.  Hopefully that will make things much easier (once I watch some tutorials and take a class, anyway)!

Oh!  One fun thing that happened this week is that my passport renewal came in the mail.  I’m a little sad to have lost all my stamps, but I guess that means I need to add some new ones!  I don’t have a trip planned or a destination in mind yet, but we’ll see…
