Tomorrow is February 1st and will mark the first day of our month long spending freeze (for real this time).
Mid January we had an unexpected trip to Florida for family which put a halt to our “spending freeze’ and racked up quite a few unexpected costs. February first we are trying again.
So let’s try this again: January 31st Day one. Setting the ground rules.
The Ground Rules:
-No Eating at Restaurants
-No coffees, Book purchases, hobbies, crafts etc
-No entertainment like movies (just writing this made me almost change my mind about the challenge)
-No clothing or toiletry purchases (except for my son’s Diapers, but I think we are stocked)
-No non-essential purchases of any kind
-Keep grocery budget at $30 a week unless absolutely necessary
What I can spend:
Money for rent, daycare, weekly grocery budget, phone, internet and gym membership.
This month I also continue to train for my marathon…more of that on a separate post. Happy Friday!
