No Spending Days

This past week I have had 4 no spending days in a row! I don't think I've ever done that before. I've really made an effort this past week to bring my lunch/dinner to work, and that is the main reason for not spending. I haven't really been doing anything other than going to and from work, so I didn't really have any other reasons to spend either.

I broke the streak yesterday when I went out to dinner with some people from work, in honour of this one lady leaving. And then today we ran out of good food to bring to work so I bought a slice of pizza.

This really made me realize that if I can keep making an effort to bring food to work, I can really cut down on my spending. Most days that I work, I am not really doing much else. And I work 5 days a week, so I really only have 2 days a week to really be tempted to spend money. So if I can bring my lunch almost every day, this can really work.

I just have to keep motivated and plan meals ahead. It's so easy to just get lazy and say "oh I'll just buy something at work" but it really adds up! I have to just keep thinking of all the other things that my money could be going towards.

Soo.. these no spending days, they only include stuff like eating out etc?

Spending on rent or utilities doesn't count?
