    I have the understanding that food, gas and bills do not count. You try not to spend on things that you don't need.

    Well I didn't spend on anything but groceries today.....however I did throw in some items that I could have done without. So to be fair to myself I am going to count this as a spend day I almost made it to my personel goal, but I'm going to try not to spend for the weekend at all.

    Okay let me see if i understand this, the challange is no spend days is for things that you don't have budgeted in, such as groceries, gas, ect. like today had to get milk that is in my food budget, so i am not sure what to say to that one, but I am going to shoot for atleast one no spend day a week for rest of this month, I am still trying to figure out all the rules. thanks for any help in this matter..

    Woohoo! Im pretty excited about mine...11 out of 16 days (though I posted this on the 17th lol) Its hard to not spend that cash on things you dont really need, this is definately a test and I WILL need a reward at the end of the month!

    Am I alone in thinking this?

    The challenge is to have no spend days (not including groceries, gas or medications).

    I'm at 11 no spend days out of 17.

    THIS IS SUCH A GREAT IDEA !

    I just join this website today, I've already spend too much this month. Spend $150 yesterday alone at target on junks (some are still in the target shopping bags, sitting in the living room). But I will start today. Since we only have 12 days left to APRIL, I will aim for 10 out of 12 days without spending.

    I did this last month and did really well and enjoyed the challenge but was on holidays the first two weeks of this month so will start at the first of next month. Of course I spent mega bucks on holidays so good job I was so good last month. My visa bill is going to be a killer.
