Last week Tressa, one of my CCCS co-workers began talking about an article she read where people didn’t spend any money over a period of time. We decided since we are credit counselors and talk to people about spending leaks, budgets, credit reports and debt all day…We could do this with our eyes closed!!
She said her Husband has labeled it as “Scrooge Week”. February 19th to February 26th we will not be spending a penny. That means we will need to budget ourselves – planning for groceries, gas and those money grubbing kids. I mean, it is only a week. We can do this…right? How hard can it be???
How about you? Take the challenge with us. Let us know how you are doing during the week. At the end of it we will share some of our stories. Share yours. What did you struggle with most? Did you learn anything about your spending habits?? But remember…Not one penny can be spent!!! You’re on the honor system so tell the truth.
This could be interesting!!! By the way…The bet in the office is that Tressa loses the challenge!! 🙂
