Starting JULY 1st I am planning to do a NO SPEND MONTH. This is going to be very hard for us but I am excited to see if we can do it.
*Set a budget for your family that is well below normal. For our family I am setting a $250.00 budget, normally it is about $700.00. This will be money for gas, groceries, ect. I realize some of you may need more than that so make a number that is realistic and attainable for your family. The point of this is to cut out all of those little things you spend money on...routine things. Skip that java in the morning. Walk to the park instead of drive. Take advantage of parks in the area. Eat food that has been sitting in your cabinet for the last 6 months. AND the real kicker is to pay off your debt or make a emergency fund with all the money you are saving.
I am excited about this and look forward to taking this journey with you!!!!
