No Spend Month Week #2 Update
He has a point this year too. We haven’t changed anything about the way we spend. It isn’t about sacrifice just for the sake of self denial. We really do want to become more intentional through doing the No Spend Month Challenge.
I would like to think that we are different people this year, that we’ve grown so frugal as to be above the need for frivolous spending. Maybe we’ve just gotten really good at saving money. I’m guessing that’s not it though. Maybe it is just that we haven’t come up against the same social dilemmas this time. It is probably that we’re just sated by the holidays, having given and received so much.
Rethinking the No Spend Month Challenge
All this has us rethinking No Spend Month and just what the challenge should be. My first inclination would be to drastically reduce our budget for the month. Then I thought we spend nothing more this month. Though we still do need gas for DH to get to work at least. Maybe there’s some other answer.
