1. Please introduce yourself and tell us why you have decided to spend nothing (or spend significantly less) for the Month of September.
2. No spending is hard work. You need a plan. Please tell us your game plan -- how do you plan to approach no spending for a month?
3. Be specific! What are your goals? How many no spend days is right for you? Do you have a savings goal? Debt repayment goal?
: Hi, my name is AutumnBreeze, (Autumn, AB, whatever) we are not spending because my husband is on disability, and we are not getting paid! Hopefully we'll be getting our 2/3 salary payments by the end of this month.
Our plan is to pay our bills, and buy food.
Goals, just not to be overdrawn! We had to live on credit cards 2 years ago, and we're almost caught up there (1 down 2 to go). I make meal plans, and shop accordingly. Our son attends public school and qualifies for reduced lunches, so if need be, we will be sending the money for him to buy. But for now, packed lunch is working fine.
Our van is about to die, so we aren't going anywhere but the grocery store and maybe school in the mornings. we are looking at buying a car from a friend (less than 1000) so we aren't spending on gas like before.
when I go buy the kids fall/winter clothes, as usual they will be 90% consignment and 10% on sale items.
We are not buying birthday/christmas gifts for them, but allowing them to go shopping with the money they get from family.
