    Welcome to No Buy!

    Please feel free to join in, regardless of if you've joined us in the past or not.

    The point of this thread is to keep track of your discretionary spending on each day of the month. The goal is to have as many $0 days as possible.

    The beauty of this challenge is that each person gets to set their own spending goals and choose how they would like to post their results. Most people choose to post their spending for each day on a daily basis, as well as keep a running total of the monthly spending. Some people break it into categories, while other people do not. You can also list exceptions to your spending, such as gift purchases or vacations. It is entirely up to you!

    Good luck to everyone!

    I have never done one of these before, but I am going to try.

    Monthly budget (not including bills)

    Gas (both of us) $200
    Groceries $200
    Entertainment (this includes eating out, movies, bowling, etc) $100 (it will probably be less than this)
    Misc (RXs, nails, etc) &70

    Valentine's Day gift $:confused3 I have no idea what I am getting my husband so I can't even set a budget. I THINK I am going to get him p90x so about $120 for that.

    Now do I post each day of the month? Or can I do this?

    Feb1
    Feb2
    Feb3
    Feb4
    Feb5
    Feb6

    and do this each week and just edit it each day?

    Just post on the other one. I looked for one before I started this one but didn't see it. :confused3

    Maybe the mods can just poof this one.

    It's okay hoffman started the other one. I totally crashed and burned for January and I'm debating even doing this for February.
