frugal: simple and plain and vintage: of recognized quality
Hi! Thank you for stopping by to visit! My name is Kerri and I started blogging in 2009 when my second daughter was born. Since then I have returned to teaching full time in the classroom but I still have a passion for blogging. I love coffee, all things rustic, vintage, clean eating and simple living.

30 Day Challenge

Tomorrow is September 1st and for anyone like me who is a teacher or a parent with kids going back to school, this really is the start of a NEW YEAR.
Soooo, with the start of a NEW YEAR comes NEW HABITS. New SPENDING habits.
I am starting a 30 day No Spending Challenge. 30 days with no EXTRA purchases. No trips to the consignment shop for myself or the girls. No trips to Goodwill.
I am limiting myself to the following:
3. Bills (do I have to?)
4. A small gift for a birthday party we are going to in a few weeks.
I am simply going to take it day to day. This is a must because even though I have gone back to teaching, BOTH of my girls are in school this year so expenses have increased.
I am wondering if anyone else is doing a similar challenge?
