Track your No Buy

What is a “no buy?” Learn more in the , which inspired this template.
Once you have your own copy of the doc:
Replace the highlighted text with your own motivations and rules.
Set up your no-buy calendar. In the “Set Up” box below, select your start and end dates and click the button. This will delete the existing sample data (so don’t do it if you’ve already started logging data!) and create your calendar, starting with the Sunday of your start week (for visual balance.)
Each day, go to your Daily Log and select whether you bought anything. If you missed a day, expand the “Log a Previous Day” section - or just click that day on the visual tracker to expand it.
See your progress in the Visual Tracker & Stats sections below!
This doc is a template, which means it’s totally customizable. Want to add a table with your budget and track spending? Go for it! Want to use your own categories or images? You can do that on the page. Enjoy!
