A Pinch And A Punch For The 1st Of The Month


Day 1 and I hav,nt been over the door so no temptation to spend, although yesterday my Niece phoned to tell us she was planning a surprise visit to see her Gran who lives with us, and it,s next week, and not 5 minutes ago a friend of mine that I see only occasionaly phoned to make a lunch date for next Friday.

Still I am looking forward to navigating my way around these arrangements and sticking to my $300, I went on to a cheap recipes site and I have got a load of inexpensive recipes to follow which I will have the time to cook as I am not working. And some of them look really interesting and tasty.

Day 1 of no spend August

$300 still in the kitty

Breakfast boiled eggs on toast
Lunch sandwiches with roast beef (left over from yesterday) and pickles
Dinner chicken mince rissoles with sweet potato and brocoli
Snacks biscuits in pantry

  1. Isn't that always the way? Just when you thought you were safe, all of these "events" happen...:)! Glad you thought of ways to get buy, great job on the NO Spend for today! :)!

  2. Good luck! Can't wait to see how it goes.

  3. Try selling something to pay for it. That is what I have been doing. Working out pretty good so far.

    You guys should make a day of it and go to a park or something or sit outside and sip coffee. At least if you are going to spend, you can make it worth the money! :-)

  4. I'll be following throughout the month... good luck!

  5. good job for day one ~ stay strong!!!

  6. Thanks for your support girls it,s keeping me determined not to let anyone down.
