Buy nothing week

So I was walking to work this morning (Friday where I am) and I realised I had spent nothing this week. I try to eat well and get exercise so I happen to have walked to and from work and made all three meals everyday this week. I was completely surprised when I noticed that I had not even bought a coffee or pack of gum or paid for the bus ... that I had in fact not spent money on anything this week, without really trying.

Makes me wonder how much I - and other people - spend during the week normally?

surely you weren't living entirely for free - are you paying rent this month?

how much do I spend a week? about 20% of my net monthly income, I would imagine.

nah, not a smoker. .

ACK! :eek:
Can't talk to you anymore! * Crosses arms and sticks nose in air * Harrumph!
I hate you!.......


OK, well no, not really :p , but it added to the effect..
Honestly the amount I spend on cigs in a month is stupid. One of the major reasons, besides the obvious, why I want to stop...

with the exception of accomodations, I have bought shit all this week. But that was only because I was in a place where there was nothing to buy.

Can I see a show of hands for tribers who were ready to explode with BUY NOTHING WEEK CHANGES AND MEANS NOTHING reactions until they read the first post?

I always spend WAY too much

dinner out, cabs all over, clothes each payday...


but I'm really really really trying to bring lunch and spend less on crap.


I cut myself down from 600 or a week to 200 a week.

Hey! I know people with malignant tumors up their asses... Hope they're ok..


Direct deposit kills me. I always forget what's going out..
And it's always the small things that add up: shampoo, cleaning products, milk..etc., "We're out of TP again?!!"

i think all i've bought this week is beer and some gum.

:)

pretty typical! but then again, i'm broke right now. if i had cash, it'd be burning a hole in my pocket.

oh wait! i bought a used bike on wednesday night. it was stupidly cheap though.

I try to not squander all my money away.

This week I bought my lunches but I can't get away from stopping by Timmies for my bagel and coffee. So that's 2.65$ a day.

But I haven't eaten @ a restaurant all week, which is big for me.

Well, I made an egg sandwich and coffee to go at home this morning, so that saved me $2.49.

Now if I can manage to do that every day, for the next..ohhhh, year or so, then I'll be set!
