Nearly A No Spend Day

December 3rd, 2014 at 07:20 pm

Today was a no spend day for me! No store shopping, no online shopping. It was nearly a no spend say for my husband, since he bought two sodas on his way home. I'm glad I can report that at least one day in the month of December I didn't spend any money.

My daughter reminded me of her Secret Santa party in about 10 days. The girls are exchanging gifts with each other. They each drew a name. When my daughter asked the dollar limit for gifts, she was told by one girl it was $25!!!! No, we will not be spending that much. We may get a gift worth that, but I sure hope not to spend more than $15.

I expect we will shop for the gift this weekend, while we are out grocery shopping. I just today made my list for groceries based on the meal plan I made last week for the first 15 days of December. I usually make a meal list one week at a time. I'm enjoying making meal plans for longer periods of time. Maybe eventually, I will just make a plan for the month rather than just week by week!

Do you participate in gift giving at work or with friends? Do you have a dollar limit? How often do plan your meals?

    When someone sets a value limit on a gift, I always looks for something WORTH that price, but not selling for that price!

    My daughter had an secret Santa exchange for her sorority. Went to Bath and Body Works and by combining a coupon with a sale, got a gift worth the price of the limit but didn't have to spend that much....she was sure happy about that!

    I usually plan weekly for meals. That way I'd be aware for healthy diet. Interested to read about financial freedom too? Try it here http://reflectandreshape.com/save-money-reducing-grocery-bill/
