So since I did all my running around BEFORE noon! I figured I shoudl just go ahead and let everyone know about my "no spend" details early.
I had to pay my rent today, but we won't worry about that because it doesn't actuallly factor into my no spend month (ah, the glory of fixed bills!) I did however put much needed gas into Austons car , a whopping $25.00! which is a ton for me, who doesn't like to fill more than $10 at a time.
After looking into my cabinets I realized I had everything I needed to make pizza tonihgt... everything except dough that is. Thus my trip to the grocery store.
I am actually really proud of myself. The candy stand right next to the register ALWAYS breaks me down, and i end up with a bag of M&Ms, but not today! I said, do I really need that? and didn't get them.
I did however, get pretzles and chocolate chips. We have no sweets in the house and when that happens Auston and I always end up making a dairy queen run.
Breakdown of today:
Pizza Dough :$2.49
Pretzles (buy1get1) : $1.99
Chocolate Chips: $1.99 (each, I got two bags.. because of the buy one get one pretzles)
Tax: $0.00 (strange?)
Total Spent: $33.46
Total Saved with rewards card : $3.19!
I figure $5.97 for 2 big bags of chocolate covered pretzles is better than $8 or so a night on ice cream!
