Week Long Fiscal Fast

  Hey kids! Sorry I have been MIA for so long! My mom was in the hospital and then I broke my foot and then I had surgery for something else this last Tuesday. Things have been crazy! I've done a little bit of necessity shopping and some scavenging here and there but I am seriously jonesing for a financial fix! I will be doing some serious shopping this Wednesday, so stay tuned!!!
  So the hubs and I collected coupon inserts today to sell. Totally scored big! It is so nice when he is home to help, especially since I'm still pretty sore; it's nice to have him jump in the bins and give me a little break. :)
I'm sitting here sorting and counting the inserts and watching a new to me show on Netflix: Extreme Cheapskates. It is so right up my alley! Some of it is a little much for me. I just can't do cloth toilet paper!!! Even I have my limits!! I am super excited however, about this WEEK LONG FISCAL FAST idea!
  The gist is this: 4-7 times each year, spend NO MONEY for an ENTIRE WEEK!!! Absolutely NONE!! I am crazy excited to try this!! Especially where we have the indulgent holidays coming quickly, this is an ideal time to save a bit in preparation for Christmas spending! And then, do another fast right after New Years! What a lovely, cleansing idea! I am going to sit down with the family tonight and figure out which week this month will be our first fast. Stay tuned for details!!!

  1. Not just the cloth toilet wipes, but sharing a piece of dental floss. The show is a new one. Just started last week.
