Well, this isn't quite like the no-spend challenge because you don't have to post about every
day, but at least come and lurk.
When you do post, share everything you did on a given day that's helped you save money . . .and glean inspiration from others.
These little things add up. If you want, you could even jot down an estimate of how much money you saved from your frugal victory, but I don't know if I'll feel that
Here are some examples of frugal victories: Washing laundry in cold water, hanging clothes on the line, making a latte at home instead of getting it at Starsucks, staying home for the day (no gas, no spendy temptations), Craigslisting for a piece of furniture that you were going to get second-hand, etc. And yes, cooking dinner absolutely counts, especially if you're weaning yourself from restaurant convenience!
I know, I know. It's still July. But I'll get an August thread going early. If this thread gains enough traction, we can go again in September.
So today . . .
7/28: Made raspberry and orange-yogurt popsicles, created meal plan and grocery list for the week, made crockpot soup and cucumber-mint salad from CSA veggies, stayed home, made all-purpose vinegar cleaner, (with lots of peppermint EO to cover the awful smell!)
Anyone else in?
