As of January 1, 2010 we have started our no spend challenge. Our challenge is to not spend any unnecessary money so we can put as much as we can back into out Emergency Fund. We took a pretty big hit taking out $5800.00 to replace our furnace. But it feels so good to have heat again!
Our rules for our January No Spend Challenge are:
No unnecessary spending
Limit our grocery budget to $60 a week (this goes along with our Eat from the Pantry Challenge)
No eating out!
The first day of the Challenge went well but, like I said "It was the first day!". Check back as I will be posting daily about how we are doing.
