I have a little pile of things I need to return that have been stacking up, waiting by the door until I can run errands. The stuff is worth more than $100 after I return it. That’s our challenge today: to return things that have been borrowed, or bought but that didn’t work out.
I want this stuff out of my house, but mostly I want money to be going into my checking account, not out of it.
Speaking of, we’re going to do a No Spend Month again in July. It’s 31 days of spending money on just the basics. (Example: potatoes=yes, chips=no.) It will be my family’s fourth year to take on this challenge, so I’m not worried about it. I know we can do it. I’m looking forward to the free time we gain, and we’ll be finishing up some house projects using supplies we already have.
(What I am worried about, as a side note, is the P90X workout we’re starting soon. That’s a different story.)
To read more about No Spend Month, you can find the story here: The No Spend Month. I’ll be blogging about it, too. It starts July 1. (I think I’ll increase the spending limit over past years since our family has grown. I receive a lot of questions about what budget you should choose, but it’s up to you.)
