I am in for August, too. Will be done with company and family obligations by the 10th!!! Laura, I am sorry you are having trouble with your brother. Problems with family are especially hard because there is extra disappointment in those situations.

Have to figure out what to do about getting another car...my truck finally drove its last mile!!! We aren't in too much of a hurry since DH only works two days a week. I really won't be stuck at home. Might even consider being a one cr family.

Another way to consider car ownership. It costs about $8k per auto annually sans repairs or loan costs (if applicable).

I do not regret getting rid of my auto. It is an means of living a purposeful life. I can not rush, the scenery does not become blurred and consumption is highly mindful. As I told my fiance this morning during our short walk -- I am a better driver because I am a pedestrian. I understand the complexities and dangers of foot travel.

Totally agree...but we live on 9 acres out in the country so we need to replace the small truck. We are constantly hauling stuff all over the place and also want it to take to the beach to so we can keep all the smelly crabbing equipment in the back. I am sure we will get something used or DH will tear it down and rebuild it. Not in a hurry...will have to be the perfect deal if we get one. I loved to hoof it everywhere when we lived in town. I was always on the go.

Going for 10 no spend and bus days.
Also need to replace the $75 in my trip fund and add to it.
Tom has $80 left on food stamps so I need to stretch that for the month.

Hi gals I am here for august!! Tues was a small spend $4 for tipping and $10 grocery at Walgreens I'm behind on grocery shopping I had family visiting. Yesterday spent $3 on $1 kids movies, we brought in snacks and drinks so wasn't a big spend day either. And today I spent $3 at Walgreens on tax cashed in some reward points. So I'm at $13/100 on grocery budget and new one starts tmrw so I'll have to make a big trip!! I'm trying to be more mindful of what we are spending this month, we have a lot of bday parties, back to school, and pay preschool for DS2 as well as swim lessons need to be renewed for September so it's a lot at once!! I'm budgeted for it all but I really need to stick to the budget!!

Tightening the budget a bit this month to pay for the Eagles concert tickets. Don't usually drop this kind of money on stuff like that but for them we make an exception (LOL). We have been under-running our budget in many categories so they fit well within our means. Today I am inside with the A/C cranked. It is 104 today. Loving our solar panels. Paid the monthly mandatory fee of $17.05 for the electric bill. We are both pleased with our decision to purchase them. Kind of smokey here today from all the fires going on in Canada...another reason I want to be inside.
