Frugal Friday {No Spentember!!}

A goal that's not written down is just a wish.: Its officially NO SPENDTEMBER!!  I’m not going to lie – I’m excited about this one.

It’s been about a year since I did my last legitimate no-buy month.  The beauty of a no-buy month is they are custom to the people doing them.

In this quick post I wanted to share my rules for No Spendtember.

  1. Only allowed to purchase gas and groceries.  (And in moderation – no crazy grocery shipping trips. Preferable to keep weekly groceries between $20-30.)
  2. Only allowed to eat out one time (fast food or restaurant) and pay for it.  If someone buys me food out – that is acceptable!
  3. No purchasing things for myself such as makeup, jewelry, clothing, etc… any “wants” will be reconsidered in October.
  4. Practice some self-control.  This will be hard.  I’m sure you’ll hear about it as I go thru the month!

Now – those are my rules, I hope to follow them and next week I’ll update you on the first few days of No Spendtember AND share how I’m trying to track finances.
