    I am looking forward to no spend today and tomorrow.   All food from home and I am going straight home so no temptations in my way!

    There is a small film festival I may have to spring for this weekend and gas to get there, but I have friends presenting!

    DMC Thank you, I do feel much better today and look forward to getting some stuff done.

    Today will be a no spend day.  I'm going to stay home all day cleaning my house and getting my laundry caught up.  Have a few outside chores I'd like to do but I think I might still be to wet from all the rain we've had in the last week.  Might have to hold off on those until tomorrow or Saturday.  All food will be from home today.

    9/25 no spend
    9/26 budgeted spend
    9/27 budgeted spend
    9/28 no spend
    9/29 no spend

    Glad to hear you are feeling better SJ!!!   You are doing really well this week!!!

    I don't think I will be spending much in the next few days, just tickets to film festival and thats it.  I have enough stock at home as well and I don't have any grocery shopping to do either!  Hope nothing pops up!

    Have a great day!

    Yesterday I ended up at the post office (long live the post office) and we got our passport applications/pictures all done!  300.00 later!  I had to take the money out of savings for it.  Bummer, but I have been wanting to get this done for so long... now the whole world is open to us!  I feel FREE!!!  Now I just have to decide where and when to go!   Mexico?  Europe?  Canada?  Woo hoo!!!  The world is our oyster baby!

    Oh. okay, back to reality.  All food from home today! No spend day!

    Good job Chic, looks like a great plan.  I actually have  pc job today, so an earning day to boot!

    It looks like the other stretchers out there are questioning "no spend days"!  YAY!!!!  Inflation fighter  Good for them~  It really works.  Some folks on the internet go months, instead of days!

    4 no spend days!  Not bad, but need to go for more next week!  Stick out tongue
