For 3 weeks, from November 29 through December 20, 2012, we are having a no spend challenge. (Actually, a spend less challenge.) We have set aside $300 for gas, transportation, entertainment, Christmas gifts, and groceries.
We spent a bit too much money last week ($160.97), so we tightened the purse strings this week.
Here is what we spent:
12/7: $5 for husband’s transportation
12/9: $73.19 groceries at Whole Foods & Trader Joe’s
12/10: $5 for husband’s transportation
12/11: $10 for husband’s transportation
Total for the challenge so far: $254.16
Remaining left for the last week: $45.84
Houston, we have a problem.
The biggest problem is that I have not put any gas in the car since this challenge began, and the car is close to empty. I will have to put in some gas, and my husband will have to have some more money for transportation.
Things are about to get interesting.
