I think that has got to be the most frustrating feeling ever. I know, I do it ALL the time. DH always says I am the only one, so I am at least glad to know that is not true. I hope you actually remember the tape today; I've been known to go 3 or 4 times to get x & come home with a,b,y & z each time, but still no x! Happy tape shopping today!

Yesterday was a no buy day.
Today I spent $92 and change at the grocery store.
Wednesday I will be spending $400-500 at the truckload sale.
Can't beat 96 cents per pound on drumsticks and 99 cents per pound on thighs. I will by enough hamburger, pork chops and chicken to last 45-50 meals.

Doing pretty good this month.. with the bitter temps I go out long enough to drop the DS12 off and pick DS12 up from school..... so I don't spend money...

I met my goal of 12 No buy days and will actually exceed it!

I am not doing so well this month. Lots of expenses. I've been meaning to post my numbers, but I haven't gotten around to it.

UGh, totally blew the month, DH had to buy a new cell phone this weekend.

So I need to go back to a no buy day for the rest of the month, except for Thursday. Picking up a used Expression from a friend.

Almost done with this month!!

How is everyone doing????

I had to jump off the wagon the past 2 days.. well, DH jumped yesterday, but I had to today.... I bought DS16's tux for prom. We decided to buy because he is such a small little guy that it was easier than renting..

I've been tracking in my email program. Not doing horribly, but not doing great either. I've had a few $0 days, but they were mostly snow storms where I couldn't leave the house!

I had a no buy yesterday. But today I needed cereal and DS11's meds. And gas, and DS12's tooth extraction, and a watch battery for DS16's watch.

Fun day.

however, I did have $120 in cash and I have been trying to use that, not my card. It seems to make me more critical about my purchases. I need to start using cash more again.

I only spent $3.55 over my budgeted $125 for groceries and I was able to stock up on A LOT of stuff. Good savings at Price Chopper!
