You may remember me mentioning my friend, Cami, and her amazing thrifty and frugal ways. Every year (for the past 3) she’s committed herself to a spending fast challenge for one month out of the year. And every year I say, “Wow, you’re awesome! Good for you! I’ll be rooting for you!” without ever accepting her invitation to join in.
This is the year that I am going to give it a go. I don’t shop excessively, but I know I can improve in many ways. This is just the challenge that I need.
Here are her rules for the month:
“You don’t buy anything for the month of February. Okay, there are a few exceptions. You can pay your rent and other bills and you can buy gas. You can also buy food, but you should limit and stretch in this area. For my family of three I spend $50 a week during the Spending Fast. You can choose what works for your family. Also, no eating out.”
Doable? I think so! *gulp*
She’s also planned a giveaway this year, as incentive for participating. She makes some pretty fantastic stuff, so I would definitely leave a comment on her blog, if you’re interested in joining in on the frugal fun.
Alright, who’s up for the challenge? Leave a comment and let me know if you’re in!
