    I need to track this also. It's been an expensive month, between paying up front for appliances, going way over my grocery budget, and paying the last of my moving costs. :S With all of that, I have about $30 in the bank account and $10 cash to last until the end of next week. And I know some of that will need to go for gas!

    Yay, going out of Aug. on a good note.  Looking forward to lots of no spends.. crossed fingers!

    Welcome Juana!  You have come to the right place.  I just helps knowing we have to come and post here when we goof or not.  It feels good to be conscious about spending habits.  Hope you do well and just use up what you have.

    I need to do the pantry challenge soon!

    This week has been a no spend week, so far.  Both the van and the car will need gas this weekend.  I need to do some grocery shopping.  UGH!

    I just need to make it week by week until the 15th of September. 

    I need to check in more often for motivation.

    Keep up the good work.

    Welcome back Striving, we miss you when you are not here!!! 

    We can do this.  It is hump day!  What is in your pantry or freezer that you need to eat up.  Tonight I am using up some salmon and will have enough for a little salmon salad tomorrow for lunch.  Using up so balsamic dressing!

    Keep coming back, we all need your input and motivate eachother!

    Oops, I'm failing at this already! :( I didn't sleep well last night and was super tired this morning, so I stopped for coffee on the way to work because I'd run out at home. Then I also went to the grocery store for coffee and creamer, so I can make it at home and not be tempted to stop for an expensive one again. The total was just about $10.

    Wednesday was a no spend day.  Today will be a budgeted spend day.  The groomer will be here later this morning to give my little dog a much needed hair cut and nail trim.  Not sure what we are having for supper, need to make a menu change because we are out of lettuce and I'm NOT going back to the store.  Whatever I end up fixing will be from home.

    08/29 budgeted spend
    08/30 budgeted spend
    08/31 no spend
    09/01 budgeted spend
