It's been 14 days since the 1st of the new year (seems longer doesn't it..) and 14 days that our family has spent not a dime on anything other than food, our monthly bills and a headlight and wiper blades for my truck (safety issue).
It's probably the LONGEST I have gone without visiting our local Dollar Tree or buying a pizza from our favorite in town pizza place. Or spent any money at an on-line deal site. (did you unsubscribe to those sites? if not, read THIS post!)
It has not been as hard as I thought it would, but it's taken discipline to look the other way from temptation.
This challenge is not just about not spending the money so at the end of January you will see how much money you did not spend. It's about personal discipline, working together as a family unit, realizing that LESS can be MORE!
What I hope you walk away with, on the 31st of January, is a sense of realization that you could (or maybe will continue to) live on LESS. That we, as Americans, have SO much and we don't need it all...just seems that we WANT it all.
What void does that "stuff" fill for you?
