Goals:
3/20 no spend days
3/15 no drive days
$0/100 selling items we no longer need/want (I made $73 doing this last month!)
$133/250 groceries

Key:
No spend:
Planned spending:
Unplanned spending:
Extra income:
No driving:

Aug 1: $90 on groceries, $3 for a lock to keep my nephew out of my pantry (this will pay for itself many times over...)
Aug 2:
Aug 3: DS woke up with a cough/high fever and was miserable so I had to make a 3am trip to Walgreens.
Aug 4: Gas and new auto insurance policy. I saved $600 by switching! Also, DS had an appointment in the city and we didn't spend anything extra. Normally we stop on the way home and get Sonic or Subway but instead we went straight home.
Aug 5:
Aug 6:
Aug 7: $43 on groceries and $20 on other household things (extra mop head, other cleaning/laundry supplies, ACV for my hair, AC filter, etc). Most of that stuff will last a long time though. I even found an AC filter that you cut down yourself and it was big enough to make two the size we needed, so now we have one for the rest of this year and next year.

Carly [29] + DH [27] + DS [9]

TTC my second and his first!

Aug 1: $200 of $200 Baby EF saved (our tenant paid rent ), and paid off EVERYTHING but the mortgage Starting the month off with a clean slate. However was the second to last day of Dh's preplanned activity so some preplanned unnecessary spending

Aug 2: more preplanned unnecessary spending
Aug 3:
Aug 4:
Aug 5: DD had surgery so some lunch for me. Ate dinner out but didn't pay as FIL took us.
Aug 6: This entire weekend sucked up a bunch of unplanned money. IL's took the kids camping and we had to drive them there and pick them up and we also stayed one night as well and overall spent way too much. And it wasn't even like it was a *great* weekend...
Aug 7:
Aug 8:
Aug 9:

My goals this month are (might add more as we go):

3/10 no spend days
2/10 no drive days
4 dinners made at home a week
$200 of Baby EF saved

groceries/other normal spending
completely unplanned

and we do have some big days where we have some preplanned spending like a vacation we have coming up those will just have to be [/QUOTE]

Aug 2: more preplanned unnecessary spending

Aug 5: DD had surgery so some lunch for me. Ate dinner out but didn't pay as FIL took us.
Aug 6: This entire weekend sucked up a bunch of unplanned money. IL's took the kids camping and we had to drive them there and pick them up and we also stayed one night as well and overall spent way too much. And it wasn't even like it was a *great* weekend...
