#NoSpend September - Day 2

by - Thursday, September 02, 2021

It's Day 2 of my #NoSpend September personal challenge!! If you missed yesterday's post, you can read it here.

After a rough morning school run, and minutes until I need to be at my book club, I decide to make a Starbucks run so I can get myself together before going to my friends house...Oh the pain of spending that $5. I don't purchase any food though because we will have some there.

I have to make a run to the grocery store to pickup batteries that ALDI didn't have yesterday. I find that there's a nice sale on apple juice -10 bottles for $10 and I get them.  The kids love it and it's the cheapest I will find it right now. I stay away from the other 10/$10 items so I don't overspend. I do peruse the markdown sections, find something, and have a good think about it before putting it back. In the hand sanitizer clearance I find some 75% alcohol wipe packs (the size of baby wipes) for $1 each. I snag 4 of them for the car and my purse. Besides the pandemic, it's going to be flu season soon and those baby wipes aren't cutting it.

I also find some multiuse balaclava face "masks" in kid friendly prints. These will be great for the cooler weather. Plus, they can be used for headbands and all sorts of things. Did we need them no, but they will be handy.

The rest of the day goes well, until...the Labor Day Sales start rolling in. One in particular from my favorite beauty brand - Fenty. Plus, with any $65+ purchase you also receive a makeup bag (which I've been desperately wanting) and a few travel sized goodies. I cave and make a purchase of discounted cosmetics. $70 spent, but it's FENTYYYY! 😭

I've got get myself together!
Maybe I should have started this in October instead?!
