No-spend September was a success!
Yes! A true $0 total no spend, count me as impressed.

The book is actually on a topic I’d rather keep private.

Also made a related purchase today for $101.15.

Respect, and no worries. The reason I asked was that I thought it might be interesting if after thinking about it for a month you decided to go for it. Sounds like a purchase you considered well worth it, so I was hoping to get a book rec out of it. Enjoy your book and the related purchase!

Ack. I took a sick day today to try to kick a cold that I’ve been fighting for several days, and finished the ebook I bought yesterday :/

I am tempted to buy another, but am instituting a one book per month policy. Books are an area in which I can very easily overspend. Back to obsessively watching my library holds.

On a side note, I found some elderberries and made elderberry syrup a few days ago, and it seems like it might be helping with the cold, although it’s hard to say for certain. I think I’ll try taking it prophylactically throughout this winter. We also just finished off the last of the fire cider my partner made last year, and need to make more.
