We have been thinking more and more about this in our house since doing our budget.
It seems we are leaning more and more towards jumping in with Tracy and buying NOTHING in the next 3 months (starting Jan.15th). I keep looking back at our past purchases and asking "how did that fit in?
" But you can not look back only ahead...........
I have been reading many of the sites people have posted and one thing I love that I do and need to do more is translate the cost of something into my husbands hours. For example the New plant I want, is it really worth greg working 2 hours for? Most of the time the answer is no it is not.
I have been meal planning and thinking tonnes.
Just like last time I think that buying nothing is much more than not spending money. For us it is about looking around us and making changes.
I am so excited to jump on board and see everyone at the potluck
