I started a personal challenge not to spend on anything from now until the end of the month. It would have been the whole month, but I didn't decide until 2/4/2013. plus I spent on 2/3 on stockpile stuff.

I will buy food. But if it's not edible, I can't buy it.
I will buy prescriptions and medical care.
I will provide pet care as needed.
I will buy gas. Although I have another challenge to get my tank of gas to last as long as possible. I'm going to try to get it to last until the end of the month. Currently I have a half a tank (17 days used). So we shall see. I'm going to start walking to areas which are a mile or under.

I did not prepare for this, so what I have on hand is what I have. If I run out, I need to find an alternative.

I think that when the month* is over. I will allow one spend day to replenish supplies as needed, purchase a bday gift for the grandbaby and fill the tank.

If I get through the month - I will continue month to month.
