No Spend Update 2
The no spend month is going really well. I thought I would struggle alot more than I am. I've been staying away from stores, or when I do go, I don't feel tempted. During the week, I tend to read or blog during my lunch break. At home, we don't normally go anywhere in the evenings. The weekends are probably a little harder, but it's been okay.
I will admit that I had one crazy day where I failed on the no spend. The minute I turned on my PC at work, I had issues to deal with, and when I left I had a whole set of new issues. I had no breaks, no lunch and I was so drained. When I came home, I didn't have dinner prepared and I knew I needed to give myself a few minutes to stop stressing or my whole evening with my family would be ruined. I ordered a pizza....I didn't feel bad about it. It gave my a chance to reset and focus on my family. Leave work at work. Life happens, and sometimes you need to make a judgement call.
Week 2- all in all has been good. I think it might get harder as my vacation starts to get nearer. Hunting season is around the corner, and we'll be going back to our hometown to visit. I need to keep my spending in check, and realize I won't need any new things.
