November Wrap-up

So, November is done, where did it go? Where is this year going? Hard to believe there is only 1 month left of 2008! Here is how November looked for me.
  • Groceries: $114.37
  • Gas: $45.50 (yeah! $34.50 UNDER Budget!!)
  • Dining out: $38.99
  • Entertainment: $14.00
  • Gifts: $25.04
  • Clothing: $222.92 (I shouldn't have to buy any new clothes for a LONG time!)

I earned $267.55!!! from surveys! $50.56 from half.com sales! And I added $570 to my savings account!

I didn't do much in the way of Christmas shopping at all, so I really need to get going on that. I am taking this Friday off for the annual marathon shopping day with my mom and am hoping to knock most of it that day! Thankfully I don't have that much to do.

I only had 15 no spend days in November and I think for December I am going to try something different. I think I will not keep track of no spend days, but rather just try to spend as little as possible, even if that means spending every day, but less overall. Does that make sense? I think sometimes I get so hung up on a No Spend Day, that when I am having a day where I spend, I tend to splurge. We'll see how it goes.

I hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving and is looking forward to a happy holiday season!
