    Default I'm aiming for (m)

    12 days as this is the first time I've done this. My biggest trap atm is buying food/drinks when I go to school. It's killing my personal spending money budget so I'm going to do better.

    February was my first "no spend" challenge and I failed miserably. March was much better, I had about 19 days. I will never have a full not spend month because I am working on building my home business this year. But I no longer eat out "just because I am out".

    Also, getting more books from the Library has really helped--I am a sucker for books. They are my weakness Oh boy!

    Someone asked about a gift card. That isn't included in this.

    So far I've had 5 no spend days out of 9. I even went to a scrapbook party on Friday night and didn't buy anything. Unheard of since I started these scrapbook parties.

    I was under the impression that the no spend days was for anything other than necessities (groceries, gas, and bills). Did I mess up?

    I think this is one of the hardest challenges! But it does a good job of making be look at errands. I am planning more when I do have to go find things or the post office. Then I do that in one day and I am finding that I spend less. I am 5 out of 10... at least half! The weekends seem to kill me!

    I want to try this...I thought I didn't have any days that I had not spent money, then I read where groceries and bills and medications don't count. So that makes me 6 no spend days out of 10... gotta add to the sig line...
