Stamps and gasoline are the only things I bought the past three days.
As I look back, on the 30 Day Spending fast to only buy necessities, I know I saved quite a bit of money. I bought many less books than I might have. I bought one shirt instead of a few when I took my daughter clothes shopping. I stayed away from browsing and garage saling (Except for that one day).
Was it perfect? No way.
Was it a success? Yes – I saved extra money for vacation. And didn’t buy clutter.
How did the spending fast go for you?
