Kind of a No-Spend Day

August 16th, 2013 at 02:12 pm

Yesterday was kind of a no-spend day. It was pay day, so I did pay my bills (the few that aren't automatic). I also gave a co-worker $10 toward a raffle ticket -- I had already promised. I've done this once-a-year raffle for three years and have never won anything, but the cause is good, which is the important part.

I signed up for Walgreen's Step for Balance Rewards. It is a program where you earn reward points for walking, weighing yourself, and setting goals. I am doing the walking anyway, so why not get paid? And making myself weigh in every day is not a bad habit to get into.

I forgot to set the alarm last night. My inner alarm woke me up with just 15 minutes to get ready, but I did it. All but washing my hair, which really needs to be done, but it was more important to catch the train on time.

I really wanted to get breakfast in the downtown station this morning, but I resisted. I thought about how I'd just earned $3 from Pine Cone, and did I want to just turn around and eat it, or put it into savings? Eating lost out. I have oatmeal here at work, and leftovers from yesterday's lunch are already waiting for me in the fridge, so there is really no excuse for buying food.

    Good on you passing on your desire for take-out bkfst. Have you tried any of the dry shampoo products? Perhaps Walgreen's cosmetic counter can offer a try-out sample pkg.

    Hey! Thanks for the Walgreens tip! I already do that same logging with my insurance fitness program to earn rewards. Doing it another time each day won't hurt at all!

    I've used dry shampoo -- long ago. But I am usually vigilant about washing my hair -- it was just an unusual two days!
