    Exclamation March no spend challenge

    Well ladies, we are almost finished Feb. I did a whole lot better in Feb. than I did in January for this challenge. I'm determined this month to make it even better.

    This challenge is for discretionary spending only. We do not include groceries, medications or monthly bills.

    Who is in for the month of March?

    I didn't join you all in Feb but I think I only spent money about 5 - 6 times during the month. Let's see it I can do better in March

    I'll do this one -- I tracked no spend days from time to time long before I found the Village. But I do count grocery spending against the total. Groceries aren't discretionary because I have to have them, but the number of times I shop for them IS at my discretion. Same for over the counter medicines. The fewer days I go into a store to buy anything, the better! Lead us not into temptation.... The only non-bill thing I exclude is gas for the car. Prices are so volatile, I fill it up whenever the price edges down, or I must.
