Today is Day 9 in our No Spend challenge. So far, we are doing pretty good though have spent $10.01 outside of our guidelines. So not perfect, but still better than any other month.
One lesson that I have learned in the short nine days is that it is easier to not spend when you have a specific goal. So for example, I find myself less likely to dedicate any time to “figuring out” how I can buy something when I know that buying it just isn’t an option.
On a completely unrelated note, I have a couple of articles for your weekend reading. Enjoy!
