I've been trying to regain my balance with the simple life after my move. When you're in transition it's easy to consume consume consume and buy buy buy. I've been doing a lot of "no-spend" days to get me back in balance.
That's where you don't spend any money for a day - on anything, including gas, food, groceries, bills, online ordering or more. Hubby and I try to have an equal number of no spend to spend days week, usually 3 no spend and 4 spending days. I'm gradually trying to rebalance to make it 4 no spend days instead. The rewards are plenty - much more cash in your pocket and a better feeling of balance. It helps you look around your home to see what you have and make do. It can be quite inspiring once you get started!
I'm having a no spend day tomorrow (tues), Thursday and Sunday of this week, will you join me?
It also goes perfectly with my cute little handwoven washcloth I found at the local farmer's market this weekend.
