I can be frugal when I want to but then I go shopping and see a sale or November is here and all the Christmas decorations and ornaments are in at the local stores then I just can't resist and it all is just out the door. (I found some really neat ornaments this year)
Well my friend Meredith has issued a challenge for January. Her challenge is to not spend anything other than groceries, household items and gas since we end up spending so much during November and December. So I'm going to try really hard. We live in a small town so there is not much shopping but boy Walmart can really get me...especially the fabric section.
I don't know of any birthday parties this month but have 4 baby gifts that I need to make. Luckily they are all girls and I already have all the fabric I need. So can I do it? We'll see...Let me know if you will do it to and we can hold each other accountable.
By the way Amber and Lisa...this means no eating out for us on Sunday!
Also, I'm already thinking about next Christmas and gifts I can be making or bartering. For those who know me well know that this is normal for me. So happy shopping, couponing, etc to those who want to accept Meredith's challenge along with me.
No School, No Work!
