I have done really well. I had planned on going to the Hobby Lobby down near Hershey when we went on vacation, but I didn't. So, my account is up to $325. Oh I can't wait until December...I have tried to not spend anything since I started this thread, and I have stuck to it.
August for me is a cleaning, organizing month. I homeschool my daughter, so I use August to finish up any "classroom" organization and cleaning that needs to be done as well as deep cleaning the house because once school starts on the 27th, I only get to really clean on Saturdays. I have some health problems that prevent me from doing alot at one time, so I have to stretch it out.
