No-spend weeks

Try as he might, I will not let the little bugger that is my Kaplan class get in the way of my writing. No way.

I have been reading up on a lot of interesting things lately about no-spend weekends. I think these are a great idea, with one caveat. I travel or schmooze often on the weekends as a part of my job, so a true no-spend weekend would not be possible to undertake until late December. Yes, you read that right. I am hoping that I have some time to catch my breath in the next few months!

So instead, I am thinking of trying two no-spend weeks, with the weekends excluded. It is not that I plan on going crazy on the weekends, but rather I wouldn’t be able to be true to my promise.

Here’s my plan: I will grocery shop tonight (Sunday) and next Sunday for the few things that I’ll need to replenish- like milk. I can, and will, walk to work every day, meaning that I won’t need to buy gas. No lunches or sodas or vending machine trips allowed. No extra trips to the grocery store for food ‘just because’ I want to make something specific.

Such is my mission, I choose to accept it, and I will be back to let you know how it goes!
