No spend Day 1

Well I did it. I didn't spend any money. This is harder than I thought. I shoulda did like Shannon is gonna do and went to the store one last time. But since I didn't have any cash, I didn't feel like it was fair for me to do that. Like I said yesterday, I'm outta coffee, then i realized last night that BBQ pizza is on the menu tonight, and I'm outta BBQ sauce and pizza sauce. But I am going to be resourceful and try to make up my own homemade sauce to go on it tonight, cause my family is really looking forward to eating it, I don't want to just make something else. Then Ben yesterday is like when are you going to the store, I need razors and shaving cream! Ugh......that means outta my measly $45.00 this week those things will have to come out of it,,, and they arnt cheap! Due to me having a little money in the bank it would be so easy for me just to run out and swipe that debit card,,,,, BUT......that would be cheating, and I'm not gonna do that! I will say though that I should have waited til Friday to start this challenge when I actually had some cash.

OH, one more thing,, on the way to the soccer game Ben wanted to know if we could get coffeefrom the gas station,, I told him not outta my money,,, so he used his own to buy it. But that doesn't count as spending because it came outta his work money.

Hee hee. I'm going to try this with you. I did a short trip to Walmart this a.m. to get my final stuff. Mostly to save money tomorrow as we are going to the zoo. So I'm packing our lunches tomorrow, zoo is already paid for and hopefully I'll stay strong. I did work on my menu last night for the next week and Josh asked for me to have one meal as a "eat out"...so I figured that into acct. We shall see how this goes. I'm going to try and only take cash when I go to the store...not using the debt card will make me stick to my budget even more. I'll be traveling with my calculator. Hey I have a jar of pizza sauce if you want it. It is from when I thought I'd make homemade pizza and J told me he didn't really like it. Let me know if you want it.

He needs razors and shaving cream tell him to pick some up!! lol!!

On a serious note...Was pizza on your menu? Bad, Bad Bad! You have to write down everything that you need for meals. Even the little things. I was in the same situation the other day, so I can't really talk. :D Just trying to help is all. :)

I need one more shopping trip because I've been stocking up. I've been trying to get a 3 months supply started and I need a little more. No I do not have 3 months, just starting it is all. :) I have a list and I wanted to check off what I need. After that I can do my challenge.

I don't go to the store in between shopping trips. If we are out of something, we are out. Like potatoes. I made a roast this morning and now we don't have anymore. Oh, well! I have some canned ones and instant ones if I really need some but otherwise...

Do you guys really have his and her money?

Hugs!
