I have not been doing very well in the NO/LOW Spending so far this month. I got paid last Wednesday and thus entered a new budget month. I spent on groceries and gas but as they are sorta necessities and part of my bi-monthly budget I don't count them as "spending" per se. I also needed to purchase ink cartridges (over $80) and then on Friday bought a coffee and as Kazi was feeling down we went out for beer and wings - ka-ching!
Saturday wasn't too bad - I just spent $5 on coffee and a newspaper. Then I thought Sunday would be a No Spend day for sure as we were going hiking but then we ended up going to The Waltzing Weasel again for wings (and wine) - DOUBLE KA-CHING!! = EMPTY WALLET!!
So I have a whopping big empty space in my wallet and $242 left in the bank for misc spending. Squeezing out $88 for TV savings is going to be a challenge for sure. Whine whine whine!
One thing I'm not whining about is my weight! I have lost another pound and only have 3 more to go to reach the Ten Pound Loss goal! Even with all of those wings! Not to mention the apple dumpling for dessert! I find that as long as I stay on the straight and narrow from Monday to Friday indulging a little on the weekend doesn't seem to throw me off track too much. And my pants are thanking me for having to stretch out a little less around the waist. You're welcome, I'm sure! The frequent exercise has a little something to do with my weight loss too.

I hope you're doing better than I am at NOT spending this month!!
