I’m going to do a no spend month. If you’d like to do it too, it’s pretty easy.
Basically, you don’t buy anything non-essential. Food, pet supplies, household stuff is allowed but no extra stuff.
I plan on not buying anything from Amazon. If I need something such as Rid-X which I do get from Amazon, I’ll just either wait or go to Home Depot. So, no clothes, coffees out unless we use a gift card. We do have a Panera one that maybe when B feels better we can go.
I’ve done this before and it really does make one aware of the things that money is spent on. Generally, I don’t buy a lot of extra stuff but still, there is some. I didn’t ever feel I saved money per se, but it did make me more aware of where I spent money.
On another note, I’m almost done with the SDI form so we will do that soon. There are a few things were not clear about but overall it is straightforward. I think this will take us thru the transplant and then after that, we will need to do something else.
On a fun note, if you have Netflix, there is the new MarieKondo series called Tidying up. I’ve watched 2 and it was fun. She is a really sincere person and I like her approach. It’s definitely worth watching.
Today is a gym day, but I’m not feeling great(probably stress) so I’ll just do some weights. There is the Koffee Klatch lunch but I’ll probably skip that too even though I’d like to go.
Dinner is unknown…
