So I have been thinking about this for a while but Libby's post was rather timely and I have decided to jump on the bandwagon and make October my no spend month. Since becoming a mum and having a little time up my sleeves when the babies are sleeping I have taken to internet shopping. I have been buying a lot of goodies for the babies (so hard not to) and other goodies from bargain websites like Brands Exclusive, OO, Deals Direct and Ebay. So this month I will try and not buy anything but essential items which means groceries (including baby formula and nappies), utility bills, mortgage and petrol. I will have to discount Saturday and Sunday (1st and 2nd) and add 2 days in November.
My spending so far
Monday 3 October 2011- $0, we had a visitor in the morning and didn't leave the house so no need to spend anything.
Tuesday 4 October 2011- $0, we didn't venture out anywhere as my time was taken up in the morning trying to resolve a missing ebay parcel I had sent, we had a visitor in the afternoon so I was totally preoccupied.
