Sorry I haven't posted since before Thanksgiving! Where has the time gone? I can't believe we are so close to December already! Well, my month of not budgeting has gone fairly well. I only spent $60 on gas and $52 on eating out. Groceries were $124, but that was feeding extra people, my turn to prepare the main dish for tailgating and making food for Thanksgiving dinner, so I am pretty pleased with how this came out.
I have been working WAY too much and therefore have been coming home, eating cereal or soup and calling it a night early, only to get up early the next day and do it all again many times over. This is one of those times I wish I had a job where I was paid hourly instead of salary! I would have earned SO much overtime this month! Oh well! It should all pay off when it rolls around to my review and raise time.
I have had 11 no spend days so far this month which makes me very happy. I'm sure I won't have nearly that many in December what with all the Christmas shopping I will be doing. Speaking of Christmas shopping, I still haven't done much about this. I have my list of what I am going to get everyone, I just can't seem to muster up the energy to get out there and shop. Anyone else having trouble with this too? I was at the mall one Saturday this month and it was so crazy busy in there I vowed that I would only be going out there during the week after work. So far, that plan hasn't worked, but maybe next week! I just need to take my list and go to it.
Over the holiday weekend I did get my tree up and all decorated, it looks great and I love coming home and turning on the Christmas tree lights. ;)
I have to go out shopping still for a baby shower gift for this Saturday, maybe I can knock a few things off my Christmas list while I am at it. Wish me luck!
I hope November was a good month for everyone and that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Gotta run now, I'm at work and must get back to it. :)
