    I'm in. This month I have a vacation coming up so I'm not sure if I'll be going away anywhere so I'll make my goal 20 no spend days. Today we ate out, so I'm not off to a very good start.

    I'll try this again too. I'm not very good at keeping track of this though.

    The budget is pretty tough for the next two months so I will be taking this challenge very seriously!

    If I can half 15 days in April as "no spend" days, I'll be happy. Count me in!

    I'm in again! I only spent about 1/2 of March as no-spend.

    Nothing spent today. In fact, didn't even leave the house. So, I'm 1/2 so far.

    I lost count last month but I know I did pretty good.

    I'm in again but the first few days I know I'm going to be spending. We're travelling to Vancouver for some assessments on dh's injuries. We'll have to spend for taxi & food etc. But starting the 6th of the month I'm going to try hard not to spend.

    Well......2 days in April and both spend days. Crumb, I'd better do better than this. So 0/2 - not good at all.

    I am in here, too! This will be hard, since my in-laws have just come to town--they are EXPENSIVE!! Retired, and like to "party." (They are RV'ers and come and stay several months, but not with us! LOL) I have to dig down for lots of grace during their extended visits--my dh jumps on the "party" wagon with them! Drives me batty--too much spending and drinking. We have been doing so well with our debt reduction/budgeting strategy, that I really fear that it will all go out the window between now and July! I think I might have a little "side" conversation with my mil....it might help if I tell her we are trying to pay off bills.

    BTW, We have had 2 spend days already...have been working on the yard, it was in horrible shape, and I bought mulch. Also dh has to pay for fall hunting licenses today--maybe tomorrow will be spend-free...

    Does buying with gift cards count as spending money?

    I watched Oprah's Debt Diet (see www.oprah.com for details).
    There was a woman and her significant other who took a YEAR off from shopping, eating out, paying for entertainment. They bought no convenience food, no clothes, no renting movies. And they live in NYC - temptations abound.

    Then this woman wrote a book.
