Next month is going to be a no spend month

August 4th, 2011 at 01:57 pm

Hubby and I haven't had a no spend month since Dec. 2008, and I think we are about due. I'm officially declaring Sept. a no spend month. It should be a fairly ordinary month, as in no trips planned, etc. so it's a good choice. Hopefully I can get hubby on board.

I feel like our finances could use a reboot, and I thought no spend month was an incredibly useful exercise last time.

    We've done one before. We give ourselves $400 for the month to cover groceries,gas, fun and all purchases that aren't regular bills. We don't include the babies milk in that total, because it's not optional. But otherwise, that's it. It really is a useful exercise.
