No Spend November

After reviewing some of my goals & then reading & feeling inspired by others’ financial goals, I decided to do a No Spend month.

“Umm…what?”

Let me explain – For the month of November, I’m not spending any additional money on anything frivolous. I pay the bills, get some groceries, but I don’t spend money on anything that’s not a clear need. Medicine? Need. Bag of candy to go with medicine? Hmm, not so much. 😉

I’m working hard to use up what I have in the house first. Instead of buying a hot cuppa, I make one at home before I head out. Instead of getting a manicure, I pull out my favorite autumnal shade & do it myself. I use the library, make cookies at home, & focus more on being grateful for what I do have.

“Oh, that’s awesome! What are you gonna do at the end of the month with all that cash?”

Why, thank you! 😉 I’m going to put it towards a larger financial goal that I’ve been working on. I might continue on with the No Spend in December. We’ll see. Right now, I’m just focusing on taking it one step at a time.

“I couldn’t do that! I would fall off the wagon.”

Well, to be honest, I have. The important part is that you get back up again. Brush yourself off & keep going. 🙂
