TJ Maxx, and Old Navy, outfit for kid and new decoration for living room and jeans for me.... $20 old navy (kid) $35 tjmaxx... not too bad....

Following therapists suggestion to 'redecorate' a bit and a new wall hanging seemed like a nice compromise. The other was 5 years old and getting on my nerves.

Oh return trip to grocery this am $35...

Day 122 - I needed a trip to the store. N (11) has been eating me out of house and home this week/end. I'm glad that he is eating. This kid does not eat. $35 spent.

So, I have a few concerts in mind. I am going to one of them...which one?? That is the question.

I've reset for May. Made a meal plan and shopped to the list.
I've also set up a bunch of Dr. appointments for myself. I HATE going to the Dr. For many years now we have always opted to have a high deductible insurance plan since we seldom need anything more than preventative care. This decision though leaves me with the choice of getting care for things that are not routine and not an emergency. We've saved money in the long run, but it does enable me to put my health last on the list...which probably is NOT the best way to be frugal.
I (finally) had a cyst removed from my head. $$$
Other than that, I've been doing pretty well this week with the no spend.

Money is flying out of this house. Thats all Im going to say. Things are needed, its not unwarranted spending at all, but gosh all mighty.

Sniff- I'm glad you are getting medical care, that is where a huge chunk of my spending is going.

Day 127 - So, I know that it doesn't count...I picked up the Life of Fred today. I found it at a yard sale for $.50 a book. How could I pass that up.

We are still in the first half of the year. July 1st is half way.

insurance is due (auto and renters)... more money leaving....

the 2nd half of the year isnt any better with spending/not spending... school starts (kid needs supplies for campus) holidays, more bdays etc. it just keeps bleeding money.

I should say I am more conscious to use coupons when we go out or buy things. I watch for sales, double points days, that sort of thing. So i guess I am spending less. I've also been more aware of the cash on hand and i have what is called 'emergency money' which consists of change and $1 and $5 that get put aside for year end holiday spending. I guess this is kinda working??

It is working for you. It is hard not to spend when you have a kid in college. Just having kid/s and not spending is very hard.

Kids cost so much money!

@zebra text books always feel like such a rip off! I don't miss those days, and am not looking forward to having to deal with it again!

@Nazsmum Life of Fred for $.50! When you are finished you can resell it for a profit! lol

This doesn't really fall into no spend: glasses, glasses, glasses!

We stopped at the cafe to tide us over between appointments $7

I went back and re-read the thread, and I have to say that discretionary spending is way down for me. Making the effort is also putting me in the position where if I need to spend (like for 2 new pair of glasses) I don't have to stress. The money is there for that need.
