Welcome to October, Bloggers & Readers –
This month, I have made my commitment to #31DaysLWSL Challenge Spending Zero with Ruth Soukup in order to NOT buy anything for one month, because it’s great experience to feel challenged that my family and I have not purchased anything in-stores or restaurants. Of course, I have some weakness but I use my strong thinking skill to stay away from in-stores or restaurants. I do usually post my images with #31dayslwsl in my Instagram. Please feel free to follow my Instagram: @joycecortesmackenroth. And if you have not started this yet, it’s okay to get started right now. Please subscribe Living Well Spending Less: 31 Days of “Spending Zero “ for this month and you will get daily emails from her.
On the other hand, I have my personal goal to save my family budget before the New Year 2016. SO how about Christmas gifts? I do not have to worry about buying the Christmas gifts for my family because I can make things at home – like homemade soaps including bath salts, chalkboard mugs (or mason jars), simply knitting mittens (or scarfs), and free printable cards. It’s very wise to not buy anything expensive. I know that my two sons want to buy something expensive but they understand why the family budget comes first. My husband and I are now working on our family budget plan for New year 2016.
Have you thought about saving the family (or individual) finance in order to avoid buying anything expensive? Have you set up your personal budget goal for the New Year 2016?
