Progress on September Goals:
6/7 actual no-spend days. Woot!
$119/<$75 in discretionary/preventable spending (oops)
0/0 unfunded credit card charges!
figure out how to cheaply accommodate M&M habit: have realized that the M&M habit needs to be ceased rather than accomodated. All M&Ms have been baked into cookies and consumed by the family.HOME STRETCH GOALS:
No more lattes!
I have $6 for treats... no more than that!
