Well, we're doing really well for the month. We got our tax check, so we've been spending that for home remodeling, but that was already budgeted, and we consider it separate from our paycheck. We have only spent our tax money for what it was intended for. We've only gone out to eat once this month, and that was due to very bad planning, and it came down to - send the kids to basketball practice without eating or grab something at the mall. We opted to grab something at the mall (and no we weren't there spending money other than food!). The bad thing is that the place we ate is new and it was really good! We've wanted to go back, but we haven't! The only other money we spent that wasn't for bills, groceries or gas was for dh to have a father/son night out that they REALLY needed. So, I'm feeling pretty good about this month. We need to work on our grocery bill, but we are still adjusting to and learning about our new diet. So, once we have the hang of it a little better - I can work on the food budget. Anyway, this month has been good for us. If someone starts a no spend challenge for May, I'll probably hang around for inspiration. We have some things planned (camping for one!), but keeping in the no spending mindset is a good thing!
