No Spend Days

February 28th, 2013 at 08:07 pm

Looking back on this month I have a total of 10/28 no spend days! Awesome! Resisted the urge to stop and pick up fast food last night even though DD bugged me. Hope to keep it up as it is not only good for the wallet it's good for the waist and Lord knows I need help with both! LOL! I also needed a few things at the store but I'm going to try to wait a few more days.

Cut the cable!!

Cable company. Need I say more? Our cable bill kept creeping up from what was once $120 monthly tv/phone/internet bundle to $191. No movie channels nothing special really except an HD package but I have been bugging the crap out of DH to cut it way back or off! So he finally did! Hurray! He cancelled the TV package and is having the phone number ported over to switch to Google Voice or Vonage. Now we will only have the internet plan with them until we find something better that will be $47.00 a month. So cool!
They wouldn't even let him talk to a manager to get the promotional price on the phone. Grrrr.

So on another note been doing well on the grocery budget $397 for the month of February and do not plan on going back until March. I'm trying to keep in under $500 a month.

Also got new insurance for our new vehichle same price for more coverage!

Have an awesome afternoon!

Howdy!

Finally decided to sign up! Long time lurker that has been following many of your blogs and using lots of wonderful advice. Things are tight since having to take on an added expense of a used(new to me) car payment among other things. Looking for some free online budgeting software that's reputable if anyone has any suggestions that would be great! I use to be into couponing but I'm having a hard time finding them for healthy food items. We frequent Aldis and Sam's but I have to be careful in the latter because I can spend way to much in there! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday!
