It’s the last Friday in January! That means the No Spend Challenge is almost over for my family. 🙂
Overall, it was a great success. I’m most proud of three things:
1. We (kids and I) ate ZERO fast food this month. Not a single bite. YAY!! I feel really good about that – physically and emotionally!
2. I stayed out of thrift stores. Today I even dropped things off at Goodwill but still resisted the very strong urge to see what was inside. It was hard. But I drove away without stepping foot in the store.
3. I even resisted the urge to buy extra red wine. I allowed myself one bottle of Aldi’s Winking Owl ($2.96 each) per week. And I must confess that my husband surprised me with a bottle last Friday. It was a big, cheap bottle. But I drank it anyway! Having four kids makes wine a necessity. I need wine. Lots of wine. But I made it through the month anyway!
Despite the highlights, I didn’t hit all of my goals.
