Eleven Day No Spend Challenge

December 22nd, 2013 at 06:02 pm

DH is gone for eleven days, he went to visit his family for the holidays (we already did our Christmas with my family). I would have liked to go with him, but he has the time off since he is a teacher and I have to work so was not able to join him.
I went to the grocery store this morning and got some essentials (milk, cottage cheese, yogurt and cereal) and am going to try to spend $0 while he is gone. The only exceptions are if I need to fill gas (I might be able to make it the 11 days) or I have a few friends in town for the holidays that I rarely get to see, so may go to dinner or drinks with them. But other then that there should be no reason to spend any money while DH is gone. Have plenty of food in the house, and since I stockpile most household items I won't need anything that can't wait till he returns. Will be a nice change after all this Christmas spending!

    My husband is gone for a portion of January, I hope I can keep spending down during that time. January and February are usually are least expensive months.

    I like that idea. Dh and I did a no Spend month in 2008. We decided it's time to do it again and put any saved money to the mortgage balance, so we're on for a No Spend February.

    I'm also trying to keep day to day living expenses capped now that Christmas has almost passed.
