I am spending nothing for the rest of this month.



I 'um'ed and 'ah'ed about writing this post and making it public. I'm not the world's best at keeping resolutions. But this isn't a resolution, it's a firm decision. I am having a spending fast for the rest of January. A buy nothing month in an attempt to save extra money towards... well, I can tell you about that another time. For now, all I want to record is my firm commitment that I am not spending money on unnecessary things from now until February 3rd. Just over a month. Let's see how I do, shall we? I should report back every Wednesday in my weekly round up.

    1. There's a thick streak of Have To about the spending cut back, so it's not completely virtuous! I'll try and be scrupulously honest on a Wednesday.

  3. Good luck. I have kept spending diaries on the past and found them very enlightening to see where the money leaks away!

    1. Leak away is the right word! Online is my biggest vice; Mr Amazon is on first name terms with me, and a month without Him might be really hard!
