    I am in - I wish I could say 30 days of no-spends (hey, it gives a person something to work towards -right???) - I will have as many as I can - that's all I can hope for.

    Good luck with this challenge in 2013 everyone!

    I would like to hit 20 to 25 days of no spending. This is a hard one for me because DH works at a grocery store and its easy for him to pick up items that I think we "need" or splurge junk food.......But onward and upward....

    "Hi, My name is Frugal Nurse and I'm addicted to spending."

    This will be a challenge for me. For sure.
    I'm aiming for 20 no spend days. But I am not going to count grocery shopping and 'needed' HBA. I say needed - because I could potentially justify a makeup purchase in the Health and "Beauty" aids section. So... only 'needed' HBA purchases.

    What I want to get away from is going to the pharmacy and buying uhhmm.. candy. twizzler bites, or something. Or heading to SB and getting a soy chai for $5. Buying an expensive lunch at work.

    With my own rules, I could get to 25 no spend days but I don't want to fail at this. So, 20 no spend days it is for me. WOOHOO!



    Cheers! and good luck to everyone!!!

    This is the problem that I am faced with. I too work in the grocery. It's not the junk food that I am grabbing - it's the marked down items (meats, produce, dented cans, etc). These are things that you simply cannot plan for - they are when they are. And you take them when they get there - no coming back for them, coz they will be gone.

    Also, DH eats lots of fresh banana's. Unfortunately that means buying them every couple of days. Last year when I started this challenge, I got a Villager Pardon on the banana purchases. They are not something that I can stock up on. So a lot of days the only purchase I have are a couple of banana's.

    Ok...I started this challenge last year and gave up on it because I got tired of tracking.

    <----- LAZY.

    Anyway. I'm aiming for 15 no spend days in January. I think I can do that.
