I know, I know..

I've been away for some time now. I apologize yet I don't even know if anyone reads this away and if it even matters! Lol. Anyway, I had Monday off since I have to work this Saturday and I tend to stay away from the computer on my off days. Then Tuesday I woke up with a horrible allergic reaction that made me look like this:

So I spent Tuesday on the couch trying to reduce the swellingness of it all. And yesterday, well. I was just plain lazy! So anyway, my No Spend Month is officially finished. :( Early, yes, I know but I ran out of money. I think I would still be doing well if I hadn't had to buy dog food and flea/tick medicine. But alas, those are things that just come up and there is no avoiding them.

The realization that I don't have to spend money all of the time is really nice. I'm going to do the same thing on a two-week basis (since I get paid every two weeks). I'm going to start small so that it's easier to focus on 14 days as opposed to 31. Oh, I also didn't eat out hardly at all (maybe once or twice) which was AWESOME, I saved a ton of money that way. I definitely loved cooking again!! I also like using cash only because it has helped me not spend as much because when it's in your hands, it truly is harder to spend. So, call me a failure if you want but by not spending as much I was able to buy Christmas presents for my Dad, Mom, nephew (and his birthday!) all at once which was awesome.
