September Budget

I am here today, like every month.. to share my budget with you.

Drumroll please.

So here goes:









Nada. Zilch. Zero. Nothing. You get the point.

I bought nothing this month. Whoopdeedoo, I know, but for me, WHOOPDEEFREAKINGDOO.

When I say I bought nothing I mean clothes, bags, shoes, accessories, etc. I am always wanting something, so I finally said no more and I tried to do a no spend month. I still bought house stuff & books, but books can't count, can they? Well they probably should when they are all Pride & Prejudice related. Ooops.

I daresay this should count for my 30 before 30 goal of going a whole month without shopping - what do you think? Cheating?

In October I am going to try and continue the no shopping including books so if you find a cute copy of Pride & Prejudice for the love of Zeus, don't tell me.

  19. Noble goal, and keep it up! I'm guessing you are avoiding all malls and stores? haha.

    I just want to say, Pride & Prejudice anything is an allowed exception.

  22. Wow - impressive! Especially since I haven't been able to stick to my 2014 resolution of doing one no-spend week each month, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yay for you! No spend is usually my motto, but I blew major cash on clothes this month. I'm cut off for October... Except it IS my 30th b-day month, so I might do some pity-party-shopping. No promises!

    Keep up the good work girl!

  24. um can we talk about how proud i am of you?! that takes some dedication haha. also loving the new layout!

    ReplyDelete
  25. YES it counts!! Great job!!!

    Not spending money is so hard and this is a hell of an accomplishment.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I need to try a whole month without spending as well. I could more than benefit from that. More or less I just need a second job. lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's amazing, good for you!! Proud of you. And it totally counts! Good luck with an October repeat :)

  28. Look at you go!!!! I have cut back certain months...but I dont know if there was ever a month where I bought absolutely nothing that was clothing, make up or fun related. You're so good!

  34. Oh my gosh, good for you!! I really want to do a no spend month, just to know that I CAN refrain from buying pointless crap, ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think your interpretation of "no shopping" for September totally (totes magotes) counts. Baby steps, my friend. Also, I am lol-ing at "for the love of Zeus" XD
