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!
