March no spend month?

March 1st, 2011 at 01:20 am

Hubby and I briefly discussed making March a No Spend Month. We did this in November 2008 and managed to sock away a lot of money. With (maybe) a mortgage in our near future, having extra money on hand would be really nice.

Last time, we gave ourselves a budget of $400 for the month to cover groceries (excluding milk for the babies), gas, entertainment and incidentals. Our regular monthly bills were no included.

We managed to squeak through to the end. Hopefully we will decide what to do, as March is only a couple of hours away!

    good luck on this! this is a great goal. i tried this once last year, i was successful but it took lots of discipline.

    We did it once and it was fun and hard and worthwhile all at the same time. Hubby wasn't on board this time, though, so we have decided to do a minimum spend month. Nothing unnecessary!
