Hi Loves, technically this is going up on Saturday. I had a crazy week at work with year end accounting and inventory. I simply did not get this post written in time!
Happy New Year’s Eve! Since today is the last day of 2016 – I wanted to share with you what I plan on doing for the first month of 2017. I plan on doing a no-buy month. I’ve grown to love the challenge of a no buy month. However – I’m going shopping Monday. Well, browsing for some super post-Christmas deals. I’m allowing myself an allowance of $25. That is only if I find something that I want to get after the holidays. There’s an good chance that I may buy nothing.
As a refresher. During a no-buy month here are my rules. If you do a no-buy month, you may change them up to suit your needs.
- Money may only be spent on groceries and gas.
- I’m not allowed to buy anything for myself starting January 3, 2017 – January 31, 2017.
- I’m allowing myself $25 to spend January 1-2, 2017
Frugal Friday’s will be picking up again in the new year now that we will be through the holidays. I have been reading a wonderful finance book that has been an easy and inspiring read. I’ll share my thoughts on it after I finish it up.
Have a wonderful New Year’s Eve & New Year’s Day!
