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.
- Only allowed to purchase gas and groceries. (And in moderation – no crazy grocery shipping trips. Preferable to keep weekly groceries between $20-30.)
- Only allowed to eat out one time (fast food or restaurant) and pay for it. If someone buys me food out – that is acceptable!
- No purchasing things for myself such as makeup, jewelry, clothing, etc… any “wants” will be reconsidered in October.
- 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.
