It's Spend-Less Week here at the Summer of 7, where we take a hard look at our money and where it goes in such a hurry. My challenge for this week: spend nothing. Nowhere. No how. No excuses.
Here's what happened yesterday--vintage hankies that just hopped into my car, clearly meant for a valance in the guest room. $1, friends.
But that was yesterday. Today, Spend-Less Week begins.
Spend-Less Week. When I think about the blessing of already-existing abundance, and remember that I really don't neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed another vintage suitcase, vintage typewriter, or vintage lawn chair. No matter how cute, cheap, and dying to be turned into amazingness.
So here's how I think this week will go down. I already conquered the no-grocery-store part of this challenge in Week 1, so that's not a big deal.
And we live on a budget all the time, so that's not really a problem. (It hasn't always been easy, and I'll talk about that later.)
But, I forgot to load my Kindle yesterday. And books are like potato chips to me. You can't read just one. I read a lot, and I read really fast. So that's going to be interesting.
I tend to shop for entertainment, even if I don't buy a lot. So if I don't shop, and I don't read . . . I wonder what will happen instead?
I might get creative.
And that could be fun.
This might not be so bad.
