Great way to think of it, Nan. Chocolate cake with peanut butter icing it is!

Ooh, cake sounds good! I am so proud of my $0 buy today. I went to Christmas Tree Shop & didn't buy a single thing. That is probably the first (& only) time that will ever happen. I do have to get some bread, milk, lunch stuff later, so I won't end up $0. However, it will all be necessities & within budget!

Way to go on the NO BUY day!!!

I'm glad the major stores and malls are miles away!!!
Went to town today and did my errands (dropping off of paperwork) and came straight back home!

So no buy today for me!!

Since I just found this thread yesterday, I'm hoping it's ok to just chime in. I'll start with this week and try to go back to the first of the month later.

January 2013 No Buy

Goal: 15 $0 Days

1/12 $0
1/13 $0
1/14 $0

Total $0
$0 Days 3

Last week was a bad week for spending but for good reason. I had to purchase items not on my usual lists due to my DD's Sweet 16 and my DH's 50th Birthday parties.

I'll try to catch up soon.

Danielle, I say cake too. We do dinner out and cake on beats. Even if there's a party later.

Weekend was not good. We splurged on dinner out.

Need to get my numbers in.

Dbfs office is being remodeled, so they're getting rid of stuff. Ya for free shelving and a white board for the preschool, but the gas to go.get it! Then a trip to winco for energy drinks... Turned into a cart full....

Today was almost a no buy. Quick run to dollar store for mailing supplies.

So DH finally looked at the car....UGH need rear brakes, pads and routers...he checked into prices and it will be around $100 total. At least he can do them and I won't have to pay a mechanic.

Not a bad price... but just a time commitment on DH's part, Cassey...
Hope it gets fixed soon...

He says he will replace them on Saturday or Sunday. I am thinking it will be Saturday as he is going to want to watch the Patriots game. It always seems to be something with one of the cars here.

A Brake job for $100 sounds like a good deal.

Groceries went well yesterday- spent under the budgeted amount and the only thing I should need to add to it this week is a new loaf of bread (if they eat sandwiches a lot).

I did however find out we are headed to Orlando for the week next week so it won't be a no buy week- but since I have been doing so well this month I have the money to spend there and we will do our celebration dinner there as long as DH had a good interview on Wednesday.

So true and we don't have much of any debt- really just a car loan with 0% from mom that she doesn't expect us to start paying back until DH goes full time and our mortgage so as long as we don't go overboard- and we will have a full kitchen so I will do cooking so it shouldn't be too bad, we already have our passes and they include parking so our only spending will be for food, gas, and tolls.

Today didn't turn out so good, but was just not my fault. DH forgot items for work, so guess who gets to drive them 22 miles to him? Yup, the person who said "don't forget" as he left the bedroom. Something about coffee pot needing water & putting his shoes on, so he forgot. Whatever! Danger was his job is near a Big Lots (and it's far, so I don't go often & I'm a little peeved, right?). Found Bazzill scrapbook papers, so I had to buy those, then some heavy cardstock & PEZ Christmas clearanced at 75% off because ds wasn't leaving without those, & Big Lots ends up being $17, lunch at Panera $11 & my no buy day just cost me $28! But.....now that I have paper, I should be able to scrap! (Yeah, because I didn't have paper before. LOL!)

Don't you just hate when they don't listen.. or they listen and forget!!! Drives me crazy.. DS16 did that to me yesterday.. he got lectured when he got home... more of a reminder and then anything else about responsibility!!!

Sometimes retail therapy is just needed...

So far so good, no buy day... but we may not get til Friday...DH was saying he was about out of de-icer for the cars.. darn cold weather!!!
