I did it!

October 29th, 2012 at 08:24 am

Update on my 5 day no spend challenge. Success! I went the whole five days without spending. I know I saved myself lots of money that would have been spent on food or snacks at work and after. It was kind of freeing in a way. Lots of times after work I think about going by the store to pick up a needed item. But, since I wasn't spending, I was able to just go on home and use whatever I had at home.
I put two dinners in the crock pot as a result. They were ready for me when I got home. So I was very happy with the results of my challenge.
I will do it again soon.
Great news on the home front. My son-in-law got a job with Direct TV installing internet and cable. He is feeling so much better about himself.
My husband is working again as well. He left our home in Texas on Saturday morning and is now in Richmond, Virginia waiting out the storm. He is an insurance adjuster and he will be doing loss claims for All State.
So everyone in my household is employed. Thank the good Lord for that!

    Joan, I really don't know how much I saved. But, I would guess about $50.

    That is great!

    Wow, yeah. $50. That is great. Really significant, especially if you can repeat the performance many weeks. You could have a couple thousand in savings in a year.
