Spent according to budget
Blew the budget
: Nothing spent! No driving! Nada nada nada!
I can't remember the first two days of August, so I'll start with Monday the 3rd.
3: Bought a few things at the grocery store. Made a basically-free dinner (trout DH caught, mashed potatoes w/ ingredients I already had)
: 4: Didn't go anywhere, didn't spend money, made a yummy dinner out of things I already had at home (including adding herbs to a really yucky spaghetti sauce I had in the fridge.
5: Bought postage to send the card my kids made for my dad's bday, about $5 at McDonald's (lunch for DS and I, and an ice cream cone. And entertainment for over an hour for DS!) and about $35 at the grocery store, where I got some great deals (but did splurge on some letter tater tots for DS, who has recently learned the alphabet and was very excited about them).
: 6: Didn't buy anything at the farmer's market. Played at the park and made dinner with things we had around the house (and DH loved it!)
7: Grocery shopping- did well!
8: A bit of driving and a tiny splurge for DH and me (DQ and Starbucks) but not too bad (I gave this a new face because, while it wasn't a no spend day, it wasn't a total splurge, either.)
9: $12 on stupid carpet cleaner
10: $1.25 on eggs, no 'real' driving (just to the park!)
11: About $15 on groceries. Just drove to the store!
12: About $15 on groceries (staples we needed until next payday). Again, just drove to the store, about a mile away (would have walked but DD doesn't like the stroller and we have to walk most of it on a busy road and don't want to walk w/ a 3 year old boy if I have DD in a sling. And it was 90+ degrees today and the sun is really hot in Colorado!)
: 13: drove to the park, no money spent, didn't drive out of town!!!
