Consolidation

I can already see how the no spend challenge is going to affect life at home. I'll actually use stuff that I've stockpiled, put aside for a rainy day. I'm not a hoarder by any means, but I do love my discounted grocery, craft, and beauty items. I love perusing the aisles of a few different shops, combining coupons with sales, trying to get the best deal possible. We eventually use everything I buy, just some get used sooner than later. I try to keep things organized, but as those close to me know, that area can always use improvement. So I'm going to continue using what we have at home, consolidate what we have, and find new homes for things we don't love or need. I am also following Fly Lady, she's a great source of inspiration. I'm not following everything to the letter, but at the same time, I'm starting where I'm at and taking baby steps.

Good for you! It sounds like you have a great plan for this month and your putting it into action. Those no spend days can be rough, but it's amazing how you can adapt and learn to use what you have to it's fullest. I think about how spoiled we have become as a society and how much harder my grandmother had it trying to make it during the depression era. Now she's someone who really knew how to stretch a dollar.

Keep up the good work! I love reading about your progress!
