Could you go and just not eat? Eat beforehand? That way you won't miss out.

I was thinking of that...but I'm not a very strong person.

When I'm in a restaurant and everyone is eating around me...I just can't resist. I've tried that before and I ~always~ end up ordering something (an appetizer, a drink, a dessert).

It is much safer for me not to go.

This book club usually meets at someone's house, they just chose this month to meet in a restaurant.

I just emailed the hostess to tell her I wasn't coming. Whew. That was tough.

But instead of thinking of depriving myself of the book club, I'm going to think in terms of saving money to pay off debt.

That is $40 that can go towards getting out of credit card debt. (and we have A LOT of debt.)

I'll catch up with the book club next month because I know they are meeting at my friend's house next month.

Did my BIG SHOP today. I split my kids up - two went to one friend, two to another (we homeschool), so I got to shop alone, woohoo! Farm store, hardware store, regular grocery store, natural foods co-op, farm stand. I stuck to my list but I have yet to tally up my expenditures (yikes). My one transgression was to buy myself a snack, which I think is probably allowed on a multi-hour power-shopping trip, right?

So now I have to make do with the food and things I bought today for a whole month, so I hope I planned well. I might reserve a little cash for mid-month in case we run out of something, because I cut my planning very close this month and we're eating mostly creatively out-of-pantry.

If I can manage to NOT go into any of those stores, I won't spend any money there until next month's paycheck. That is my strategy anyway, and it takes up the slack when my self-control wavers.

We're nearing the half-way point for the month....Can you make the second half of your month EVEN BETTER than the first half? Can we make the last two weeks no-spend weeks? Let's aim for all thumbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I'm "starting over" with the second half of the month : I withdrew $40 from the ATM on Saturday and have it all still! I hope to not need any other money for the rest of May.

May 13th
May 14th -No plans to spend for the day

Another for me today--that's three in a row!

I'm so impressed with the rest of you--when you want to stop spending, you really stop! It is inspirational. I'm hoping to be more like you in the second half of this month. My plan right now is absolutely no spending until Friday, then I get a little cash boost from some freelance work ($50). I'll get that in cash and make it last the rest of the month. And I still have at least two and possibly three pairs of shoes to return, too.

I have been doing great.

I do need to make sure my library items get back on time.

I did buy my daughter $8 in birthday presents, used books through Amazon.com. Last year I was beginning a major transition in my life, and I was a regular Amazon customer. Today I felt that temptation, and I did slide a bit: I bought two used books rather than the one I had planned, but I'm improving.

Her other presents from me are from a homeschool yard sale, where I exactly broke even. I can see needing to go with $0 presents in the future, but at this point I am not sure it's necessary (finances are up in the air (divorce)).

One thing I really labored with this month was the homeschool yearbook. It was only $5, so beautiful and full of the faces of the children we have come to love as part of our community. At first I just ignored it, telling myself it was not necessary, which is true. But when I saw one, I decided to contact the mom and see if she had any leftovers, and I am going to get one.

Another thing is that my children needed new shoes, due to leaving them at parks and outgrowing. In one case, I am working on my oldest parting with her old pair of croks because my middle child lost his pair. I thought that was a stroke of genius, but she's still pondering her "price." (I am hoping it can be in-kind, like giving her X amount of time for things she loves to do.) We did get two pair at the yard sale, big score. My dd also needs church shoes, and that's a bit trickier, but I'm trying to solve the shoe "necessity" with craftiness rather than buying new. I'm also trying to solve it without going to thrift stores, because I would have to bring my kids, and it would be extremely hard to walk out of several thrift stores with three children without buying extras.

We've been making the most of nature as entertainment, and it really feeds us all. The museum has a free-day coming up, and we'll go. I bet the best part will be climbing on the tree outside it anyway.

We haven't bought food out once. Here's to outtings with PB&Js, apples, and kids who get hungry enough to eat them. Until this budget crunch this winter I never knew it was possible.

I managed to cut my electric bill to an all-time low, and I am so proud and encouraged about that. (Thanks MDC mamas for your ideas!)

Ooooh...I'll have to commit this one to memory and use it on my DDs tomorrow.

Nature as entertainment, using gas is the same as spending money...I'm learning some good tips from you ladies!

Well, *I* didn't spend any money over the weekend, but dh went and bought lunch for us on Saturday and then went the supermarket and bought a bunch of unnecessary stuff last night. No for us

However, I did hang most of my laundry out to save on power, paid attention to the outside temperature and kept the air off until we needed it & managed to make it though the weekend without using ONE paper towel (my weakness).

Gearing up for the second half of the month.....

Today will be a . I am not going anywhere today! I did end up spending a little more unplanned money yesterday but Dad gave me $50 for my birthday so that evens it all out (woo!). Mom said she is giving me money too, so that's exciting. I wasn't expecting anything as they split up around Christmas and are both screaming poverty (well, Dad truly is; mom is just seeking drama).

There are some things I can see being needs coming up, but I'm hoping to stave them off. Our cell phone is on the out and out for one (are they supposed to sound like a blender when you plug the charger in? : ). If it wasn't so cheap, I'd just get a plan elsewhere to get a new free phone, but it's practically free and we only have to pay system access fees (which are lower than some other companies). We may eventually just get a pay as you go phone as we don't use it much for calling or texting, mostly just the phone features (alarm, phone book, stop watch, ect...). But my need to have one outweighs the cost of having it. Our contract is up this summer so we still have a little time.

I told DH what I want to do for the rest of the month (only spend about $10 a week for produce). I know he doubts we can do it. I just have to keep out of Superstore. Darn them with their low, low prices and having all your shopping needs taken care of in one convenient shop!!! I think I will just take the money out to set aside and leave the cards at home so we can only spend that amount.

1. Please introduce yourself and tell us anything you think it would help us to know about yourself.

Hi, I am Sheila. SAHM to 3 kids. Occasional hairdressrer....

2. Please tell us why you have decided to spend nothing (or spend significantly less) for the Month of May.

We just had a $3600 truck repair and moved to a new house last month. We are saving for a replacement vehicle for me (not the one that got the $3600 repair...) and need to rebuild the emergency fund.


3. Please tell us your game plan -- what are your goals and how do you plan to approach no spending for a month?

hmmmm not sure, coming here for ideas... It seems ALL these little expences keep cropping up and sapping us. things for the new (older) house, things for the kids, the kids gt invited to Birthday parties... that kind of thing... but we are getting unpacked and settled in and I am happy to be back to cloth everything... I have just started reading the No Impact man blog....

Well today will be a spending day but guess I'd consider it essential.

Got pulled over yesterday for a tail light that was out. Fortunatley the officer told me get it fixed in the next 2 days and did not even write up a warning. The tail light will be cheaper than getting pulled over again

Whew.....I made it back. I bought only what was on my list (milk, bread, bananas, baking powder)...it was HARD.

I thought my life could not continue if I didn't buy a Kelty six person tent with a queen-size self-inflating camping mattress.

But I made myself put it back and -- indeed -- I was able to survive.

When I was safely out in the car, wallet locked in the glove compartment, I remembered how much I hate bugs and dirt and heat...does that sound like someone who needs a six-person tent?

Sheeeesh...it is purchases like that that have put us so deeply in debt. I am an impulse buyer.

The girls wanted to go to McDonald's after Costco, but I have taken all the cash out of my wallet and pay for everything with checks...so we couldn't go.

I made it another day, another thumb. Yeah!!

May 1...
May 2...
May 3... $105
May 4... $23
May 5... $9.50
May 6...
May 7...
May 8... $6
May 9...
May 10.. $6.50
May 11.. $18.43
May 12..
May 13..
May 14..
May 15..

Tonight we were invited to a dinner party, but my neighbor who normally baby-swaps with me isn't available and I refuse to hire a sitter at $10 an hour...so DH is going by himself. I figure once our debt is paid off we can start talking about hiring babysitters again...but for now that counts as a non-necessity.

Frugal Progress for today:

1. Went shopping at Costco and only bought groceries
2. CD Eleanor
3. Not hiring a babysitter
4. Played at a park after Costco instead of taking girls to McDonalds

Thanks Kelly!

You guys in this forum saved me yesterday -- I was two clicks away from buying something on the internet late last night, but I didn't want to come back on here and take off my for yesterday.

That's why I put mine up so early today...now I feel obligated to stay clean.

Well, no for me today--spent $82 at Ross on summer stuff--but this should be it for summer clothes now, so that's good. And some of it will likely go back, as it won't possibly all fit.

HI! Is it too late to join? I really want to be in on this for the rest of the month!
1. I'm Mom2Joseph and I have 2 children. We live pretty frugally already but need to really tighten the belt so to speak

2. Our DD has been very sick for the past year and the medical bills have cleaned out our savings. I really want to replenish our savings and then pay off our student loans (now there's a big challenge!)

3. Nothing but gas and groceries...and even groceries will be limited. I have a stocked freezer and pantry so should only need essentials/dairy. The only expense this month is a wedding gift for my dear friend's daughter. She is like a niece to me and so special. I already have a 20% off coupon for her gift and plan to use my "allowance" so it doesn't really come out of our budget. OH AND NO MORE DIAPERS! I have more CD's than any person needs! I HAVE TO STOP!

oh, and I have tons of stuff to return....that's just $$$ hanging out there for me to get! My plan is to take an entire morning/afternoon and just return stuff.

Sunday:
Monday:
Tuesday:

I am also planning on doing no shopping tomorrow. It's hard as I got a lot more money for my birthday today than I expected. I want to do some things to the apartment, but we're also seriously looking into buying a house, which may happen sooner than expected. Why waste money for decorating a place we may live at no more than a year or two at the most. I am planning on buying a shoe rack as our current set up is a disaster (think a big heap of stinky shoes by the kitchen table : . There's no where else to keep them that's handy), but I'll watch the sales as there's no hurry. I was also tempted to eat out for supper but reached for the freezer instead. yay!! Little victories rock!!!

Welcome Valerie!!! My LAST diaper arrived today in the mail. ~~no more diapers~~~ You and I can hold firm together.

I have over 60 diapers and we never use them all. It is a compulsion. That is 60+ diapers that are size large. I don't even count the smaller sizes. My daughter is afraid to potty-learn because I start screeching whenever she heads toward the bathroom. She HAS to wear all those diapers.

Happy Birthday Carla!
