Last week when we had no plan to do a no spend week we spent a total of $529.61 in 1 week!
This amount only includes gas, food, and extras. All other payments such as mortgage and natural gas ect are all paid automatically.
If we keep spending that amount for a whole month we are looking at 2118.44 a month. This is about $776 over what we have budgeted for these areas. No wonder we are having trouble keeping our bank account in the black.
$776 over for a whole year would mean we would be spending about $9300 over budget!
This last week we started a no spend-a-thon. We are only allowed to spend on gas, groceries. only when necessary.
We spent a total of 119.99! Much better!
Anyone else doing the no spend month?
Let me know how its going!
