Some families go as far as not spending ANYTHING, not even on groceries. Other families make lists of what is considered acceptable spending and what isn’t. We are the later type of family. Some categories include food, clothing, date night, and car maintenance
We’ve decided that it’s okay to spend for groceries, gas, subscriptions (i.e. gym and other memberships), and everything else that is purchased must be under $5.00. The plan is to document the experience and share with you readers at the end of the month. Wish us luck. 🙂
In our relationship, Dave is the saver and I tend to be the spender. I’m really bad about emotional spending. (Kind of like emotional eating…speaking of…I ran almost a mile last night! I’m kicking butt and taking names. LOL) The purpose of the limited spend May is to help curb that habit. Dave is super good about helping with this.
If you are interested in doing a No Spend May with us, contact me and I’ll add you to the facebook group! 🙂 I like having buddies doing challenges with me!
