For the first time ever I have decided to start recording ZERO SPEND days. Here are my personal guidelines (yours may be different).
- Allowed to pay monthly household bills online or by mail.
- Allowed to use gas in vehicle as long as it does not require going to the gas station.
- No spending online, in a store, or at a garage sale (no money leaves the purse today)
- If forced to purchase supplies for business as long as no non-business items are bought it still counts as a no spend day.
So after three days in 2013 two were ZERO SPEND days. I am allowing gas on these days so we can picnic at the beach or go on a photography walk or hike as 2013 is also the year of FUN!
My day so far:
I had leftover home-made pizza for breakfast (it was yummy). Had a look at this weeks grocery flyers, cut out a few coupons, am going to dust (breaking out the housework in bits makes it easier), do some business work, and then get ready for a wine and cheese reception we have been invited to this evening. Another ZERO SPEND day!
