Look at this!!!
It’s now been 47 straight weeks where I’ve spent money 3 days or less in a given week.
For those who don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, I wrote about how I set up my ‘No Spend’ chart three years ago. Every day that I leave my money alone, I get to colour in a square. At the end of each week where I’ve spent money on 3 days or fewer, I get to colour in a silver square as a reward. Silly, but it works. The first lockdown, then the second, meant that I was pretty much staying at home. I had plenty of staples to eat, plus the garden for fresh food, I had books, Nextflix , the dogs and the phone for entertainment and I kept myself busy by working at remote teaching and also painting some fences. Who needed to spend money?
So as a result, I started clocking up the silver squares. A few weeks ago I decided to number them so I wouldn’t lose track.
Now I’m on one hellava winning streak. 47 straight weeks.
Can I make it to a full year? I’m invested in this.
52 weeks is a long time but hey. There’s only 5 short weeks to go…
Keep your fingers crossed for me. I’m going to give it my best shot.
Good luck! Is there a big prize for the 52-week mark?
No, but there probably should be!
