Spending nothing in Feb

nospend_challenge-726776From Leaving Excess, who got it from Mom Advice.

What a novel idea.  Spend nothing.

We have heard so much lately about the economic downturn/crisis.  You don’t have to look far to read about layoffs, buyouts, and foreclosures.   So far, my life has continued on as normal.   As if my family is completely immune to the effects of this global problem(is it a “global” problem…i don’t really know..)  But, reality check…we ‘re not!  So, I’m slow to react, but I am reacting!

Since we just refinanced our mortgage (reduced our interest rate by 1.75%!), we won’t have a mortgage payment in February.  This is a great time to:

A. spend a little extra on other junk   or    B.  save, save, save like crazy!

I’m not a natural-born saver, but I’m going to pick B anyway.  And February is a short month, and I love a challenge!  Now, of course, I won’t be spending NOTHING, we have to eat, you know, but I can come up with a plan to spend significantly less than normal.    So, I have one more day to come up with a solid plan—with actual numbers and everything—so check back.   and wish me luck talking the spouse into this crazy hair-brained scheme!
