Weekly Progress

Hello to All! I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend thus far. Its been a pretty rough week as far as the weather. The West Coast, specifically California, has experienced quite a bit of rain. Of course, the people on the East Coast would say a little rain is nothing when the temperature is far below zero here.

This week, I just couldn’t rein in my spending to reach my weekly goals. I splurged a little more on junk food than I should have. Starting the 30-day no-spending challenge has been on my mind throughout the week. I can’t say I’m really looking forward to experiencing a month without sushi or gummi bears.

I am commited to completing this challenge and I believe that this challenge will serve as a pillar of strength when making future financial decisions.

The rules I have laid out for myself during this challenge are as follows:

  • You can spend money only on necessities like gas and bills.
  • No money is allowed to be spent on fast food, merchandise or extracurricular activities.
  • All money not spent is to be saved.

Three simple rules to follow for the month. What I am really interested in seeing, is how I behave after the challenge. Will I splurge like never before? or will I feel a renewed enthuasim about saving?

Only time will tell. Each week I will be giving an update on my progress. Since this will be my first time participating in this challenge, I will try to take it easy on myself.

And how could I forget, Rams bring the championship home!
