I am so happy to report that January was my LOWEST SPENDING MONTH YET! This hasn’t even become something I am so much thinking about anymore, it is just my life.
The other day my mom and I went to look at some wedding dress patterns and decided to run into a couple of our favorite places and barely bought anything! Both of us. This spending ban has made me (and her) think about not just the money we are spending but the items we are bringing into our home. We are focused on simplifying this year and the spending ban is just a natural part of that. It has really been fantastic.
Here is the weekly spending report AND the monthly charts showing a few things.

Once again, dog stuff takes the cake for my spending. Having 4 dogs isn’t cheap. But they are so worth it!
It’s really been great to see my overall spending trending down! I hope it continues this way because I feel like I can decrease this even further.
