Well I did it. I made it to NO SPEND day 50. That means that collectively I've almost gone two entire months of 2013 not spending a single penny.
In the grand scheme of things I don't know how much of an accomplishment this is. I know some people grocery shop once a week. Some people live far out of town and don't get to purchasing things too often. But I think more people than not spend money practically every single day. You buy a coffee or a pop, you pick up a donut or a candy bar, you stop for a hair cut or pick up a gift for someone; spending money is easy peesy.
Well 50 days down, 54 days to go. I'm shooting for 104 days of not spending this year. It's kind of fun and it definitely saves me money. A dollar here and a dollar there adds up very fast.
