It’s nice to see you again! I’ve missed you!
The 2nd Month of the Spending Diet is complete!
February savings totals are in. While I (again) couldn’t stick to my $100 “non-needs” spending limit, I don’t feel like February was a bust like I felt January was. I do feel guilty that I couldn’t stick to my limit and it only reaffirms that the Spending Diet is a lot harder than the Spending Fast.
Still can’t believe that…
Despite the difficulties I saved: $1,105.47!
Not too shabby. Not too shabby at all.
(see the total savings here)
For March I’m determined to stick to my $100 limit and maybe *fingers crossed* pay off my final college loan next month!
It COULD actually happen! I’m pumped to think it just might!

Wow! That's so impressive, congratulations on your savings achievements. I have been spending for about 6 months now, since I got a raise at my current job, and I am now opening a savings account with <a href="https://cibng.ibanking-services.com/cib/CEBMainServlet/Login?FIORG=910&FIFID=231170136">Aurora Bank</a>, and seeing your money grow is so worth the diet ;) really like your points for being on a diet. Hope you can pay off your student loans, that's soooo exciting!
Yay on your continuing progress!
I posted my own version on my blog: http://misplacedcoupon.blogspot.com/2011/02/re-back-at-it-saving-for-house-feburary.html
I hope you're able to splurge a little after your loan is crossed off the list!
Thats still an awesome amount of savings!!
Go you!! :)
Good luck next month.
Of all the debt I paid off, the last college loan was so anti-climatic. It didn't hit me until a year later when I realized I don't have debt. At all. And how different my life is because of it.
