And now it’s more than 2 weeks past time to report on February! Where does the time go??
Time Flies!! Bwahahaha!
February No Spend: You can probably guess how this is gonna go, if you read January Juice.
Why don’t I just call this game?? And try again next year.
But why?? You may ask. Well, because I might have accidentally…
bought my new husband a new truck, for my birthday.
Yeah, it went like this: Vanronica had to have new buckles on her new shoes. (Remember when she almost shook herself to death in December, and had to have all new tires?? Well, now she had to have brakes. Such a high maintenance woman she is!! What next?? After her face lift, I just really don’t wanna know!!)
So, as I was working with Robin, my personal shopper at Toyota, DH wandered off to look at trucks. No harm there. Yeah, right!! In a little while, I texted him, “4 door please!” I was just kidding. He came in a few minutes later saying, “C’mon, got something to show ya.” I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if he hadn’t just looked at a 4 door, right before I texted him! Now he wanted to show me. Of course it was gorgeous!! All tricked out with everything, except leather seats. (FYI, I hate leather seats.) My first question, after admiring it, was “What year is it?” Cuz I knew if it was a 2018 or 2019, that would be where we’d be living for the next 6 years!! And since we had just rented a house that cost more than Absolutely, there’d be a slight problem.
Long story short, my credit was high enough to get the truck, with our combined incomes. Sadly, that meant trading in Big Red, which the girls loved. Me- not so much. It drove like a square tired wheelbarrow, and sounded like it was gonna fly apart any second. I do wish we could have kept the camo seats, though!!
So, since we now have a truck payment that is more than double what Big Red’s and Vanronica’s were together, we are tapped out of any further claim to No Spend. But, I’m still gonna report on myself, to see how I do without the junk food, and other frivolous purchases.
February 2018 in 2018: Much better!!
I am decluttering!! Packing up to move made it much easier to say, “Hmmm, haven’t used this for awhile, it can probably go.” And I haven’t missed a thing either! Yeah for lighter, and less!
I think I have over 200, but since my chart is still packed up, somewhere, don’t hold me to it. The girls already have at least 35 on their chart! PP was so excited to mark off some boxes!! Even though I really don’t think she knew why she was doing it!
DH got rid of 32 clothing items- future post. That counts, because now we’re one.
And I got rid of a bag of fabric, and have another one to go. Yay me!
I know, I need to find those charts!!
A 2018 in 2018 , and a No Spend post.
