No Spend Month Wrap-up

It's the end of March and officially the end of No Spend Month!!!  We should have a party. Although we didn't do as well as we had hoped, we managed to not impulse buy as much and didn't spend near as much as we normally do on things.

However....with the beginning of the no spend we were fasting and had to go to the grocery store more frequently to buy fresh produce as we were eating it like crazy. And on top of that on the first day our dishwasher decided to break. UGH! I know spend huh?  So since we figured we'd get a new one anyways it didn't matter that it was no spend month so we bought a new one.

Overall, No Spend Month did serve it's purpose and made us aware of what and how we spend our money.  We are implenting some of Dave Ramsey's concepts after we attending his Live event also at the beginning of the month. So onto a cash system and budgeting we go.

Spring is a fresh start and what a great opportunity to start new habits.
