I'm going to try this this month!1. Please introduce yourself and tell us anything you think it would help us to know about yourself.
I'm TarHeelBaby, SAHM to TarHeelSon, who's almost 4, wife to Mr. TarHeelBaby. We live in NC. TarHeelSon has cerebral palsy, so I am busy with his therapies, doctor's appointments and the like.
2. Please tell us why you have decided to spend nothing (or spend significantly less) for the Month of June.
I lurked along in the May thread and I think it helped me not to be so frivolous with spending. I hope that actually posting will be even more incentive to not go crazy. Also, we had to put new tires on my car, and it ate some money out of our savings. I'd like to replace that.
3. Please tell us your game plan -- what are your goals and how do you plan to approach no spending for a month?
NO unbudgeted spending! We do have a bunch of stuff lined up in June, but I've made a plan and I think I can stick to this plan! We are flying to Maine next week to visit MIL, BIL, and SIL and I want to keep our expenses down. The only things I can think of are some food-related spending there. Our plane tickets and rental car are already paid for.
TarHeelSon's 4th birthday is this month, but that shouldn't be too expensive, either. I've already bought all party supplies (back in March and April) and have already purchased his birthday present (back in April).
Really, I just want to curb some spending. I do not need another pink lip gloss, and TarHeelSon does not need any more clothes. I just want to stick to necessities.
