Anther no-spend day planned. Getting a little boring, aren't I? I mean what was it that I used to buy that ate up all of our money? I couldn't even begin to tell you. This month has been a real eye opener. We'll save almost 35% of our take home pay and we aren't missing anything. Makes me think we could be saving a lot more. And we need the savings. We have lived too close to the bone for too many years.
I would really like some candles though. I have burned every little nub of candle stub and am completely out now. Dh's birthday is Friday and dinner by candle light is a bit of a tradition. Or I could dig out some Christmas lights and tuck them into mason jars for a similar effect. LIke this: http://lavieenblanche.blogspot.com/2011/08/lets-talk-lighting.html Yep, I think I'll do that. Wouldn't want to break a no-spend trend.
