48 dollar challenge: day 7

Today is a sad day my friends. I am going to fail my challenge as my car decided to act up last night and stall for no apparent reason. It started back up and no lights are on, but I don't want it happening again when I am on my own next week. It is in the shop while I am sitting in panera, riding my hot chocolate purchase at least another hour while I wait for them to get to my car. So, from my wallet I spent approximately 3 dollars, but who knows how much is damage is going to be on the car. Unforseen situations were at work here, ruining my awesome no money spending streak!  A week is pretty good though, and the car is not a frivelous thing. In this time waiting I have found all of these other things I want, including: swedish hasbeens and a dress form. Can't you just see those green ankle boots on my feet? I already have the magenta tights! I have already told my mother I want them for my birthday. I am willing to wait until december if it means I don't have to pay. well, maybe.

48 dollar challenge day 6

OK. update. I have successfully spent NO money thus far. I was going to spend some money last night to tip the bartenders at the wedding we went to (congrats to Doug and Molly), but I forgot. Ha! I didn't have to pay a copay at the dentist, so I am all set with money and I have clean teeth!

48 dollar challenge: day 2

I have spent 0 dollars today!!! BUT, I have to go to the dentist tomorrow, so that is a co-pay. I will keep you posted. My mom sent me some great ideas about cheap food options:

I might make summer on a stick... I will take pics.

48 dollar challenge.

If you know me you know I have a problem with shopping and spending my money. After paying rent yesterday I realized I will only have 48 dollars in my bank account until payday, which is next Thursday. I am going to try to make it with only this money for the rest of the time. I started this challenge yesterday. Do you think I can make it? Schuyler is going to be gone all of next week, so what should I do for free fun?

Tuesday: spent no money, but drove to climbing (30 minutes each way)
I will post my money spent today later tonight.
