February No Spend: $0 Spent Last Day

February 29th, 2016 at 05:42 pm

It was VERY tempting to go out today to run errands. Especially since I can see our paycheck pending in our account. However, I stayed in. We spent $0 today. I did some more spring cleaning. It was even warm enough to take the cats out in the yard for an adventure. I pulled a few weeds I found while they enjoyed themselves in the sun.

I'd like to say that I could go longer with a low spend month, but we have some things we want to spend money on (and have saved for). I'm not planning to buy more than a usual month, of course. I just know that if we need to spend we will. And some of it will be wants. There has to be room in life for wants!

Our Marriott Rewards card arrived in the mail today. This card will provide 80K bonus points(plus 7500 points for adding authorized user) after spending $3K in the next three months. The card does have an annual fee, but you get a free night as one of the perks. We expect to use our points for several nights in Washington DC this summer. If anyone recommends any Marriott branded hotels in the area, let me know!

    Several years ago we stayed in the Marriott very near the National Zoo and were impressed with it. I used Marriott points so I don't know how much the cost would have been. But it was a walk to the zoo and there was a subway stop a block away too so we could get downtown to the museums. We didn't use the car at all.

    Geesh. You did much better than we did in No Spend Month!
    Although, our low spending/weekly cash-only budget seems to be carrying over into March, which is good. If we keep it up, hopefully that means more money to the mortgage!

    Oops! I think the title of my post has alluded that we spent $0 in the entire month. That is not true. We spent $0 on the last day of February. We actually spent closer to $900 for the entire month on expenses that we could control. This is far better than the $2K+ we usually spend.
