I was already doing most of them. I was thinking it would be nice to learn about tricks like, put a bottle of water in your toilet tank to reduce the amount of water used or other specific tips like that. ;) they were good tips though and would have been fun if I wasn't already doing them.

Planning our meals reduced my grocery bill in half!! I had to tell hubby No when he offered to BBQ because it was not in the plan for this week but we will integrate it for next Sunday :-)

I think they were good tips. I already do most of them, but for someone just starting to revamp their finances they would be super helpful.

Great challenge!  The most beneficial activity will be the tracking journal.  I'm going to start one this week so I can look for any cuts that can be made.

Loved the ideas. Made me feel good that we're doing so many of these already!

Even though I already do lots of the ideas suggested, I really enjoyed the challenge as it made me take another look at finances and where "silly spending" was happening.  I thinkt he biggest thing that's going to give me trouble is keeping a spending journal to see where else cuts can be made....

The challenge made my resolve to get back on track that much more prominent in my mind.  I knew we had slid off course, but I was purposely not thinking about how FAR we are off course, so the challenge brought this back to the forefront.  Thanks a lot!

I do most of these already. DIY home repairs to save money would be helpful.
