I've almost got dh convinced to do a No Spend February.  Well, 3 weeks of February....we go on vacation the last week...and that won't work.

ive never done one before, on purpose.  So I'm not sure how this is going to go.

You can google the concept for a better description....but basically no non-essential spending.

Oh I've been on those in the past.  This is more of a voluntary thing.

I don't know that we could do it. It's hard to not just swing through starbucks in the morning. I love my coffee.

It's going to be a struggle for me....I love my dunkin donuts too. Especially on those never ending days when i need a boost to get to the end.

I'm going to try to buy as little as possible in January. I just finished up spending in decmeber with the purchase of a bunch of supplies for the greeting cards I make. I do have a birthday gift to buy but otherwise planning on sticking to essentials like groceries if possible. My downfall is now that I've started using iTunes on my new phone it might be hard to resist buying some songs...
