Hi...jumping in to join today. I just found this thread, but I did make a "no spend" promise to myself last week.
We are debt free, but spend nearly every penny of our healthy income I am ashamed that we make so much money and are saving so little. Granted, we have made childcare choices that are expensive (non negotiable for me), but there should still be plenty left over.
My biggest spending goals are:
Food: We eat healthy, but eat out and eat healthy "convenience" from Whole Foods way too much. We spend anywhere from $1000-$1200/mo on food for 2 adults! :
DH and I both WOHM, so I will be realistic and set a goal of a 25% reduction this month.
Online/In store Shopping: No purchases- none. We dont "need" anything for the next few weeks...especially cloth diapers!
