The Hubs and I were talking and we decided to challenge ourselves by having a “NO SPENDING WEEK” at the end of each month. So, the last 7 days of the month there will be no unnecessary spending. It will be a monthly Financial Fast .
We have been working on our budget for the year. So not a fun thing to do. But, a necessary evil. Since winter is our slowest time of the year regarding our business, very little extra money is available to us. So, we need to tighten our belts even more.
Unnecessary spending includes:
- No eating out
- No stopping and grabbing a soft drink/coffee
- No thrifting
- No wasting gas running around
- Make sure all unused rooms have their lights turned off
Have you challenged yourself regarding your finances for 2012? Feel free to join me in my No Spending Week once a month. At the first of the month, I will let you know how we did and any tips that helped ease us through that week.
