"30 days of nothing" - day 4

WOW! I am loving the thought of doing this whole little campaign and it is fun to have Brian on board. I hope I feel this way come the end of September :) !!

We are doing well so far and keeping to that list of "rules" we came up with. I was even thinking as I sorted the mail this evening, "Well, all these catalogs can go straight to the recycle without a glance because I'm not buying anything from them anyway!" Yippee - talk about freeing!

Today we stayed home most of the day. We did some school in the front yard this morning because it was low humidity and coolish and soooo nice for here in September. We had cereal for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch and a freezer breakfast casserole for dinner (it is so yummy). The only money spent was $10 to reload our long distance calling card. We rarely make long distance calls and this is by far the cheapest method for us.

Nothing never felt so good!

Sounds like you're doing awesome!

We use a calling card for long distance calls as well :)

Sorry, we make you call long distance even though we live nearby. Not sure if we are going to get a land line or not right now.

I love this idea, and actually read a story of a woman who went a week without spending a single dime.

I not only throw out the catalogs, but the coupons for stores too. When I get them from Carters or Gymboree or another store and know that there is no NEED, I toss them.

Congrats on 4 days well done!
