My Recap on the No Spending Challenge:
It has been a long month since we embarked on this No Spend January. I have come to realize MANY things about myself, my family and our way of life over the last 30 days.
Here is what I know for sure:
I would rather BUY experiences with my friends and family, then BUY stuff to fill our home.
I should have stocked up on wine before January 1st! (just being real here)
I have figured out that the value I place on STUFF and THINGS is not the way I will live my life from this day forward.
My outlook on people whom I thought were people I wanted to hang out with and be “friends” with, have changed.
LESS IS MORE!
I will never be enslaved to STUFF again!
(truth be told, if it were up to me, we would sell our home and most of our possessions and RV around the US, experiencing our country first hand.)
How did the children do?
I really thought this was going to be an “issue” for our children. The only thing they asked for was a takeout pizza. Other than that, not one request for the dollar store or extras. HUZZAH to our children!
As you moved forward in this New Year I ask you to be intentional about taking time to slow down and think before you make purchases. Spending time with the ones you love and enjoy all that your life has to offer.
We will continue to question each dollar that goes out of this household and be aware of the impact that we on our children.
Off to the wine store......
Be Blessed and Spend Less!
