I just had to have maintenance done on my truck, and it was super-tight moneywise, so I took $400 cash from my paycheck and put the rest of the balance on my credit card.

Except looking now, I gave them the wrong card, and it went on my debit card instead, and I just barely avoided having my monthly car payment rejected for lack of funds. (Instead I now I have an empty savings account. :() I am officially going to spend the next two weeks until payday spending no money whatsoever. It'll totally be a fun experiment in Doing Things Because You Have No Other Choice.

Actually, I've wanted to do something similar because I'm at that point where my budgeted income and my budgeted expenses are just too close, and I need to find other ways to cut spending. I've read a couple articles recently about people's no-spending experiments, so this is as good a time as any to give it a try. Right after I buy myself some lunch, because I forgot to pack something. OMG, I fail already! *weeps gently*

I am having a low-cash-flow week myself, so I entirely sympathize (I had to walk around to a client's place yesterday because, well, they hadn't cut me a check since December and hey, I have a mortgage to pay....)
