After reading the series about Mrs. Gumdrop's spending freeze, I'd like to find ways to improve our savings this year. Luckily, my SIL and her family are going through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University and want to do monthly challenges with us so we can keep each other accountable!
We both have a toddler/baby, so a real spending freeze is a little much. Here are a couple ideas I have so far:
Make 2 more meatless meals a week
Only buy groceries once this month
Don't buy any lunches
Complete fast food/takeout freeze
Documents: create and file a will, update tax withholdings, and check credit reports
Sell/donate/recycle $50 worth of stuff around the house
Anyone else have ideas?
