Well, it was very interesting to do No Buy Feb, Thanks for hosting Xan, I am so glad I found your site and took the challange.
I was surprised to see that I was able to cut out well over a hundred dollars spending per week out of my regular budget, I did notice that this took out my “little treats” on the other hand, can one really call spending between 400 to 500 per month little.. It seemed so because it was spent in small amounts or added into my grocery shopping time but really that is a big old chunk of change..
That does not even begin to touch the savings I had because I didn’t do any extra shopping for the month, I have never been so good about writing my list and sticking to it.. It made for speed shopping this month or price shopping online or by newspaper before I got to the store so that I coudl walk in.. get it and walk back out..
I enjoyed the fact that DH was fully onboard and even called me a few times on things I was doing without thinking in the stores. It was a great way to really make you think about your choices and purchases and to remind you to go thought your belongings to see if you can find something that will work or can be re-used or re-purposed to do the job.
