Day 2 No Spend August / Passive Spending
Day 2 and I have still not spent anything at all, although I very nearly went for a coffee as I was up at the Hospital getting the stitches taken out of my hand, but on looking at the time I decided just to go home and make Dinner, and have a free coffee instead.
And talking about free coffee I realised today that although I have kept to my budget by not taking money out of my purse, I am PASSIVELY SPENDING every single day, we all are. Whether we are asleep or awake it is costing us money.
Take our fridge for example we never switch it off or our freezers, so 24 hours a day we are spending money on electricity. We are paying road taxes even if our car is sitting in the garage. The same goes for insurances most of us make no claims, and of course we can,t forget taxes, in one form or another. My conclusion is that we have to be aware of our conscious spending, when we can do little to prevent the passive spends.
