Today is a No Spend Wednesday for me. No spend days are simply days when you do not actively spend money.
(If you are not reading this post at www.howisavemoney.net or in your feed reader, it may have been stolen from my site.)
I’ve been looking over my spending since moving and I noticed I spend a lot. I’ve been buying something practically every three days. Every day I notice something else I need and I add it to the shopping cart. Then when I have enough for free shipping I go ahead and order for delivery.
Today I want to give the card a break and get my spending back under control. So I am having this No Spend day today to over a few things.
Now, for many people the no spend days do not work because they treat them like binge eating days. People will have no spend days and then go ahead and splurge on the other days. This is counterproductive.
The best use of the day is to really reflect and cut out unnecessary spending. This is what I will be doing.
