  20. Money challenges
    (I hope I'm allowed to do this.) Because of the crazy gas prices, I think a good way to monitor gas spending is to do it the same way we do bills. Write down how much you drive and then try to reduce it a little each month, right? So, I'm presenting this challenge: 1. Keep a small journal in...
