I am sure you have heard all the buzz about MoneySavingMom and LifeasMom using January to eat from their pantry. This challenge couldn't come at a better time for our family. As some of you may know we have been without a working furnace for 2 weeks now. Nothing is fixing it so yesterday we got some estimates to replace it. The damage $5800.00. YUCK!!
While we will not be able to go without spending any money I will try to reduce my weekly budget. My original plan was to keep my budget at $400 for the month and lower it $25 in February and so on. But then the furnace had a mind of it's own. Here are my goals for the month:
1. Spend the first part of the month eating up the pantry
2. Spend as little as possible. ( I don't have a set amount because I haven't went shopping for the past two weeks and I know I can't make it through the whole month).
3. No eating out.
4.Search the internet for recipes.
I am also doing a no spend month for January. Check back for my goals for that challenge.
