Day 21 No Spend February / Plus Weekly Spending Report

My Spend Less Week In Review

This week has been a big success, I still have some of my Mad Money left, I also have not put all of the money allocated for fuel into my car yet, the petrol money you can see spent was left over from last week, hoping to be able to keep that expense down. My Grocery bill was around the $100 mark but because I made some good food choices next weeks bill should be down.
I managed to sneak in an extra 1hr 20mns overtime today, I had been counting on staying back for 2 hrs but the sky turned black and a storm threatened so we all got sent home. Maybe tomorrow I will be able to pick up some more hours.

  3. We are down to the wire - 1 week left to go. No problems for you, in fact you're earning well above what you need and you are going to slay that debt monster - it's starting to tremble at the knees - it knows you're coming for it!!

  5. I know this has nothing to do with your post, but with New Zealand near you I could hardly believe the pictures on the news this morning of the earthquake there.

    Just as our national news reported about the fires and floods in Australia, they are reporting about the earthquake in New Zealand.

  6. Hello Maureen,

    My name is Ryann and I just visited your website at towardsretirementwithdebt.blogspot.com.

    I am looking for link partners for my finance websites and blogs and hence this email. Would you be interested in swapping links or do article exchange?

    Here are few of my websites,

    www.mortgagecases.com
    www.debtcs.com
    www.getcreditnews.com

    Also, if you would like your return link presented in a particular way please include this information in your email.
    P.S. - Just so you know, this is a one-time mailing sent by a person (me!) who has visited your website - I never use software for this and you are not on any list. I am contacting you like this because we can help each other.

    Best Regards
    Ryann Meade

  8. Great job on the no-spends and sneaking in overtime. I'm always happy to see extra hours on my paycheck, especially when I can make them work for me. :)
