A Week Without Spending

Filed under: finances, happiness, life, self improvement — Tags: , , — discovershanae @ 1:07 pm

Okay, so I did it. I went an entire week without spending and it was an extremely trying time. My strong desire to spend money is sickening. As a result, I’ve decided to analyze my relationship with money. I have to find out exactly what it is that makes me want to spend money because I cannot live my life this way. I’ll always be scraping by or extremely broke if I do not change – and change quickly!!! Right now I’m reading Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin. All over the many many Personal Finance (PF) blogs there are I’ve read that this book can change your life. Well, I’m taking the bait and I hope it will change my life for the better.

  1. I hate shopping since I’m cheap but I don’t know how I could avoid not buying anything for a week especially with a 4 year old and a fiancee. And I buy lots of fruit, too. Maybe I’ll try this experiment next month. Thanks for the idea.

    As far as spending itself, stick to a budget. I’ve helped countless people with their finances and the common issue was they never had a budget. “The Two Income Trap” is another good book concerning finances. It will be be extremely helpful when you decide to get married.
