I want to report on last month’s challenge of spending less. January and February were overall good months for me spending wise. I kept track of every dollar spent. January was the better (cheaper) month but only because I bought less groceries.
I did have one slip up in February when I went to IKEA. IKEA has only been here for about a year and half. The store is located across the bridge and not pedestrian friendly getting there. Meaning you basically need a vehicle. Which I don’t have. So when friends want to go – I’m there. I enjoy walking around the rooms as my type of eye candy. That said my slip up was a mason jar and a flower-pot. Total under $10 Canadian so not that bad. I want to be transparent.
I’m not going to go wild in March but I do have a few events coming up so $$ spending there. I have season tickets to the theatre and we have dinner before hand. Play tonight (or the evening this post comes out).
I was going to do a social media challenge for this month, but had a snow day on Sunday. Change of plans as I decided to write a friend a letter (by hand). So challenge for this month is now snail mail. A minimum of one snail mail card/letter each week. I’m checking off this week as I dropped the letter into the mailbox on my way into work.
Feel free to accept my challenge of snail mail this month! If you are like me you enjoy receiving a letter and/or card in the mail. It is such a treat now. So why not give a friend an unexpected surprise! Go for it!
I’ll report back next month!
You can always start now!
