    Well, today was a no buy day until I was checking on line for my DS16's college course bill.. it was there so I paid it in full today!!!! (he takes the college challenge course and gets college credit and the credits are dirt cheap but count towards his degree!!!!!)...

    So, we are 3 kids down and tuition FREE til AUGUST!!! :woohoo:

    Good for you! That has to be a huge burden off your shoulders.

    well I think losing your no buy day was a good call to be tuition free for the next 5 months!

    Nan, I know. We got side tracked by cheap bday goodies. I'm so mad! I have to go to walmart tomorrow to see if they have gloves or mittens still. So I will get tape. I need it to wrap my orders! Ugh!

    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! :woohoo:

    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.
