I have to say, this no spend month went south in most areas the second week in.Not only did our stimulus money come in, I ran out of a few things. There were a few of purchases that I had not planned. Two of them were vitamins; vitamin D and my B-complex.
I didn’t realized I had a couple of weeks left of pills, so I ordered some before they ran out. Since I had to order my B-complex through Care/of, I decided to stock up on the B-12 supplement as well. Heather Robertson released a nutrition guide and as a fitness coach, I am always looking to learn and expand my knowledge. I wanted to take advantage of them before the price went up since it was only $14.00 versus $19.00 post sale.
She is one of my favorite trainers at the moment, so check her out her fitness/ nutrition content if you have not.
I also purchased a new hat, which was a smidge under $10. I just wanted to have another hat to alternate with when I wash one or the other. I used to have my ex’s hats handy but obviously, that is not an option anymore.I have been purchasing candles still during this no spend month, but I limited it to ONE a week versus my usual 2-3. I also still do a dine-out once a week, which hasn’t changed from a regular month but I did just want to mention it.
Typically I do Wendy’s with the kids on Sunday’s and get a salad for myself.We also signed up my oldest for gymnastics. I was going to wait until after school started back up, but I figured she could have a couple of days to get used to it beforehand.
- Vitamin D: $14.49
- B-Complex & B-12: $22.00
- Winter Hat: $9.97
- Gymnastics: $42.00
In the grocery department, I’m at about $300.
My goal for the month was to be under $450. I did run out of pull-ups and wipes, so I those upped the amount of “groceries” I’ve spent. In terms of Starbucks, I’ve only added $10; my goal is to be under $25.At the end of the month, I’ll do a full recap of my no spend month. So far I will say I’ve been thinking twice of my purchases just knowing that I’m not supposed to spend anything “extra.”
Have a great week y’all!
