...a great time for walking in Las Vegas! The weather was perfect for a 12k walk along the south Las Vegas Strip this morning (see photo above).
...NaNoWriMo. AKA National Novel Writing Month. Yes, people actually do write entire novels during the month of November for this challenge. I am thinking about doing this challenge in November but we will see what happens.
...No Spend November. Hubby and I are definitely doing this challenge in November. We don't need to buy anything (our pantry is full to overflowing, we certainly don't need clothes, I have really cut down on shopping for anything but necessities) and we want to cash-flow Christmas for the kids and grandkids. We generally give them cash instead of gifts but with five kids, 13 grandkids, and three great grandkids, Christmas usually runs around $2500 so we are going to see how very little we can spend throughout the month of November.
...Thanksgiving. We actually have no plans for Thanksgiving so we will do our usual small dinner at home for just the hubby and I.
...Time to turn clocks back in most of the country. Daylight savings time ends on November 7th so we will do the usual, set clocks back an hour, change furnace air filters, replace back-up batteries in the smoke detectors, switch the ceiling fans to run backwards, etc.
...Veteran's Day on November 11. These discounts will really help us stretch our money during our no-spend month.
...Finally, a couple interesting articles I read recently: From crazy coupon lady to felon--eeeekkk! And this guy who came up with a unique solution to cut his food bill.
