Spending Freeze

So, I've decided that August will be a no-spending month....
Meaning that I will buy NOTHING unless it's a necessity.
Sad, eh?

The only thing I will be purchasing this month is groceries and the basic back to school necessities for Memphis.  If this weather keeps up, I won't have to worry about Fall clothes just yet! Phew!  ;)  I have treated myself to a few cute things this summer, so you can't feel too bad for me, right?

Our budget has really suffered over the past few months.  Every time it seems we can ''relax'' money-wise, something happens!! Am I the only one who NEVER gets a break?  I seriously need to win the lottery... for reals.

Anyhoo, I'm sharing this on the blog today so that I can be held accountable for any unnecessary purchases!  If you see me tweet or IG about something new... it better be something that was purchased pre-spending freeze... you can totally call me on it!!

Sadly, this means I won't be purchasing any new ad space in August either. So if you'd like to swap, let me know!  And if you want to BUY an ad from me that would be totes awesome too, of course!  ;)

Happy last day of July!!

  2. i can never catch a break either. we have a hard time saving, and have very little wiggle room. but it's only b/c we're spenders and doers. we need a spending freeze i think!

  4. I have been on a spending diet for the past three years. But it has had benefits - I have paid off over £6,000 worth of debt in that time!!

    So keep it up chuck!!

    Also, I would love to do an ad swap for August. Your ad for me would need to be 300x130.

  9. I'm with you! I maxed out my Ad space budget and now I'm frozen. I have to save up to pay first month's rent AND the deposit, so there will be no unnecessary spending for this chica either. Probably. Hopefully. That's the goal.
