No 19 - had to pay for emergency surgery for Caelum which he didn't survive. Then I spent postage to mail excess Caelum meds (heartworm and flea) to another dog who could use them.

Nov 14 - started (spent no money until Nov 18 when I had to do postage, then got food and gas since I already spent money and did need those things.)

Last fall I did a no-spend month after seeing a blog post pinned about it on Pinterest. The premise is to go through as much of the month not spending money on things outside of the very absolutes. I had lofty goals of fully stocking my pantry and freezer, meal planning with those items for the whole month, and bringing my lunch to work everyday. Needless to say it wasn't entirely spend-free, but I was able to eliminate a lot of my discretionary spending and even reduce my driving during the month. I liked how it made me think, that I vowed I would try it again and maybe even get my husband on board. I was hoping to do this again this fall, but the timing isn't quite right. I have a few car repairs that need to get done, my best friend's wedding is next month, and school has be completely frazzled and stressed to be able to plan this out thoroughly, but this is on my radar, and I'm hoping maybe come January I'll be able to focus in on this again.

Starting this tomorrow. 10/16-11/14. I'm trying to run this with the "no fast food for a month" goal. I would say a HUGE chunk of the unnecessary spending I do is on food. Even when the house is full of food to cook I still buy fast food because its just, well faster. lol But I need to try not to do that anymore. I'll definitely save a lot of money.
