So remember how I was tracking my "no spend" days over at that Women in Red blog? My goals for October were pretty steep: 24 (out of 31, obviously) no spend days and 28 no eating out (NEO) days. The results?
25 no spend days (that's $0, bitchez!)
29 NEO days
That's RIGHT! I didn't just meet those goalz, I destroyed them! Rawr!
The bonus side effect was even better, though. Keeping that tight of a reign on my spending was pretty tough, but at the end of the month I had a total of 17 transactions out of my bank account in October. That includes all groceries, all gas, all bills (even the auto-pay ones), the one check I wrote, and the credit card payments. 17 transactions in one month! It didn't even fill up one page on the online account register!
It's so amazing to me that I can't stop using exclamation points!
I better go to bed.
