Its time for a Frugal Friday post – and a challenge I’m starting. No buy months are hit and miss for me. I try to focus on no-buy days. Can you go a day without buying anything? For some of us its much harder than others.
I’m not going to lie, it can be a struggle for me. One of my favorite money bloggers mentioned something last week that made a lot of sense to me. Continue reading
Hey Everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done a Frugal Friday. I’ve determined starting this week – the remainder of June is a NO BUY. I had to buy a shower gift on Monday otherwise it would have started sooner!

Maybe I’m biased since I work in accounting as a profession, but its not really that difficult. It does however take a bit of time. Continue reading
Hey Loves! We are half through NO Spendtember!! I thought I’d share an update on how things were going. I’m doing pretty good but its hard at times.
So – OMG – the challenge is real y’all! I am so tempted every day by emails about sales. I’ve gone to just deleting them, I don’t even open them. The temptation is so hard for me but so far – no online purchases for myself/personal use. Continue reading
Hi Loves! So I mentioned Dave Ramsey before but I really do like his style and find him inspiring when it comes to money. This is sort of a mashup of his idea and one I’ve gotten from another financial guy I like Adam Carroll.
