No Spend January 2015 Challenge! Who is with me?

No Spend Month Challenge #nospend #savemoney #howtomakeabudget #howtosavemoney #cutbackspending #thriftyliving #twelveOeightblog



Ok, I know it’s technically not the new year yet, but I had to tell you about something I have been working on.

As I have prepared for Christmas, wrapped gifts, made lists, and baked the days away, I realized how much stuff I have.
Not only how blessed I am, but how self-sufficient I could probably be if I was to just put a hold on spending and
use what I have for a month.  

Regular recurring obligations, as well as food, gas etc… are still in the budget.

What am I taking out? For a few weeks, stops for chai, trips to the craft store (I know), and anything I don’t need.

While shopping and thrifting are a huge source of fun for me (I am probably not super alone in this) I love to save money
and get a great deal.  So, I am going to do a fun giveaway at the end of the month to share the love!

More on that soon.

For now, here is what you need: a desire to spend less, save more, and have more peace and order in your home & life.

So, yeah.

That’s pretty much everybody.

I have seen challenges before and liked the idea, but some of the tasks were too hard (I feel SO lame admitting that!)
And I freaked out deciding not to organize my whole home, save my photos in a cloud, and freeze a years worth of meals
all in 30 days. Because I am overwhelmed easily and do not really want to take all that on in just one month.

But, I can commit to doing one thing, each day, to create a more peaceful life.

With less stuff (give some things away, consign, sell what we don’t need.)
More time (use some of my stash and save money for something I really want.  Like savings or a new couch)
More fun (when I do a teeny bit of planning the rewards are huge, no more last minute rush to figure out what’s for dinner etc…)
And none of it will be  overwhelming, that last thing I want to do is add anything to your to do list.  Promise.

So, every night I am going to share what the topic is for the next day.

Each Sunday is a day to reflect and think about what we are thankful for from that week.

If you can do all of them with me, AWESOMESPICE!!!
And if you do some of them, that’s totally cool too, because it’s always more fun together 🙂

Well, I am off to get out home ready for my Sister, her hubby and fur baby to arrive this week, and maybe make one more batch
of caramel corn.  

See you at the Inspiration Monday Party going live today too, watch for more deets on the challenge, we will start on January
1st, and the topic will be up the night before!
