Amount Under Budget: 5%
If you stay out of the stores you don't spend money. A simple fact but such a hard habit to put into practice for a tried and true shopper. With a very thorough job of grocery shopping on the weekend, there was no need to pick up anything else during the week. I'd even gone against my usual rule of only picking up 1 bag of milk and grabbed two (it helped that the expiration date on the milk was 10 days away).
No stores = no spending. The end… for now.
