I feel really good about this month. I sent a monster payment off to the CC company for DH's tractor and also managed to purchase most of the wood pellets we'll need for this winter. Having your heat paid for is such a good feeling. Especially when you live in northern New England!

Month end tallies:
Shopping $50/$50
Home Improvement $50/$50 (still working on our project though!!)
Groceries $300/$300 (especially proud of this as over a $100 was bulk maple syrup and tallow that I bought)
My fun money- $5/$30

I didn't end up tracking no spend days. My spend days were so few, pretty much maybe 6 for me- for groceries. My driving days were about 12.

Nothing else was bought and the things we bought shopping and such were things that were needed, not wanted. We are doing well and holding steady. I will be soooo very happy when this year is done and I have everyone paid off for this pregnancy and birth.
